Accomodation on beach but near town

We're looking for a place on the beach but walking distance to town. Unfortunately, Baan Khao Lak seems to be already booked for the time of our visit. Can anyone recommend a different place?

Also, how easy is it to get out to some of the islands from Khao Lak for day trips?

In addition to my replies on the other post, the new Laguna Beach resort is next door to the Baan Khao Lak. The map at http://www.khaolaklovers.com/KhaoLakMap.html

shows the location of this and other resorts in relation to the main area of Khao Lak at Bang La On but I would also consider resorts on Bang Niang Beach just a couple of miles further up the highway with its own growing number of restaurants, shops and bars. The Ramada, La Flora and Mukdara all come gernerally well recommended and the new Sudala Beach Resort is very nice with excellent facilities.

I visited Khao Lak this January and February and highly recommend Bayfront Resort. It's situated on the Sunset Beach, in 10 - 15 min. walking distance (or 3 min. by taxi) from restaurants and shops in Khao Lak. I took a look on couple of other hotels in this area and found Bayfront to be the best among 3* hotels, especially when we talk about relation between price and quality.

As regards the islands, I visited both Similans and Surins on day trips and my opinion is that it's much better to take longer (at least 2 days) trip to both places. Of course, you can go to Similans or Surins within 1 day, but you won't be able to appreciate all interesting places over there in such short time.

If you'd like to see some pictures from Khao Lak and from the islands, you can take a look on our gallery:


Have a nice trip to Khao Lak!
