Surfing Khao Lak & Phang Nga Thailand
Khao Lak in Phang Nga is a surfing paradise which has been basically unexplored. There are reef, point and beach breaks unridden everyday. Khao Lak is about 1.5 hours drive north of Phuket Town.
This was obviously damaged by the tsunami in December 2004. In recent times it is returning to be a popular tourist destination in southern Thailand with natural rainforests, elephant trekking, diving, white water rafting and of course surfing. It's the step off point to the Simillan islands and Surin Islands. There are plenty of places to stay in Khao Lak.
The beaches are pristine and mostly deserted. Check out these photos of a lonely point reef break, location undisclosed. The surf photographers' name is Nigel Seed and you can contact him at
Thanks Nigel for the great surf pics.
Some places to explore are Pakarang Point which is located in Khao Lak itself. There are a lot of places to surf in Phang Nga some are easy to find and some quite difficult to access, but while you are exploring Phang Nga you will see many other sights and attractions, rainforest, waterfalls, hot springs.
