White Sand Beach / Ao Thong / Golden Bay @ Pakweep Beach

There is some confusion on the net about the "White Sand Beach" / In Thai: "Ao Thong"

Ao = Bay

Thong = Golden

Just to make life easier and to clarify:

There are three small Bungalow Places (besides the luxurious Boutique Hotel "The Sarojin") now on this beach

White Sand Beach Restaurant & Bungalow

Ao Thong Beach Restaurant & Bungalow

Goon & Gib Own Thong (or Oaw Thong) Restaurant & Bungalow

Unfortunately there is no official translation/transcription from Thai into the Roman Languages, so sometimes the Ao Thong Beach is also written (on signboards, maps, etc.) as:

Oaw Thong


Own Thong


Oawn Tong


Aown Tong

Have a look at Mr Nuengs Ao Thong Beach Restaurant and Bungalow here for pics and description

Thanks Hualan,

Now I'm really confused...LOL...Only kidding..!!

White Sand Beach near Sarojin and the little strip of beach in front of the Rim Lay Restaurant near Le Meridien wins my vote for the prettiest beaches in the Khao Lak area...!!
