Here is a link to a map of the wider Phang Nga Province showing the main roads used in these trips.
For a nice short trip to familiarise yourself with one of Khao Lak’s most scenic areas, drive north along Highway 4 in the direction of Takua Pa until you reach the sign for a left turn to the Toklaburi and other resorts. There is a 711 store on the corner where you make the left turn. Continue down this road passing the turn off to your right for the Sarojin and Kantary Bay Resorts, Aow Thong/White Sand Beach and the Boatyard Restaurant, until you come to the T-junction at the end passing the Palm Galleria on the left. A left turn at this junction will take you past the Toklaburi Resort, the former South Sea Grand Resort and the Apsara Beach Resort. Park here and go onto the beach where you will find Memories, a local beach club with a restaurant and bars. Surf boards can be hired here too. Turn right at the junction and it will take you along Cape Pakarang itself. Park at the far end where, in season, you may find a small restaurant/bar. If the tide is out you can walk a good distance along the exposed rocks bleached white by the hot sun, admiring the views along the southern Khao Lak coastline to the south and the more impressive ones to the north with their mountain backdrop.
Return in the reverse direction, turning left at the T-junction and continuing to the highway or turn left at the junction signposted The Sarojin etc. and then take the next left turn, going straight on past the Kantary to Coconut Beach (you’ll find out why when you get there) and park near the Boatyard Restaurant at arguably the best part of the best beach in Khao Lak – Pak Weeb Beach .
Return back and turn left past the Kantary, following this winding road to first the famous and very popular White Sand Beach , then the Sarojin and then before following the road back to Highway 4 further north, there is a track to the left to the also popular Rim Lay Restaurant. Park here, have a drink or a meal or both and take the opportunity to stroll this stretch of beautiful beach which fronts the adjacent Le Meridien Resort.
