Beach hotel, not isolated, where you can walk for miles alon

Hi everyone. Totally confused! Want to go to Khao Lak in February. Would like a beach front hotel, near to bars and restaurants and where you can walk for miles on the beach ( as we did in Goa - but have visited the best places here already)

Seem to find a place ie. La Vela but on further research people seem to say you have to walk up a road to access further parts of the beach. Ideally love to sit and eat on the beach but realise a lot of beach front bars/ restaurants have been demolished.

Ant advice on where we should be looking at

Have a look in Bang La On also called Nang Thong Beach. There beach there is long and you can then walk through to Sunset beach over a few rocks. The walk takes us about an hour so it is a good length.

Depending on the type of hotel and budget - you could look at X10, The Sands, Centara Seaview, Nang Thong Bay,

There are also some nice places on Sunset beach which are a little further away from the main restaurant strip but still doable (walk down the hill, taxi back up) Moracea, Khao Lak Bayfront, Sensimar. You can then walk to Nang Thong Beach and trhough to the start of Bang Niang (you may need to cross a few little "creeks").

There are still a few places to eat along the beachfront including some resorts.

Look at nang thong bay resort. Good hotel, bars close by, on the beach and can walk easily for a hour or so along beach

Orchid Beach Hotel on Khuk Khak Beach

very pleasant 3.5 plus stars, no pretensions , we love it

head north for a walk.. you will need your passport

if you want more stars the Haven is on the same beach

there is a nice little village with a number of restos next to the Orchid

Ma Ma Greetings Resto is just a bit further up the road, but so much better, by a mile

Have a look at the x10, very nice beach for walks and well placed for bars and restaurants for the evening

We stayed at Sensimar and if you face the sea and turn right there is a great long walk. You have to climb a few rocks but even me, being a 60 something lady, can do it. Not as good as south Goa walks but much better hotels and facilities. So much so, returning next January.

There are a couple of restaurants across the road from Moracea etc and the main area with heaps of them is about 10-15 minutes walk down the hill. Walking back up is a bit of a task but you can easily get a taxi back up if you need to.
