Are the beaches around Khao Lak clean and good for swimming or is it better to use the hotel pool.
Is there snorkelling here?
Many thanks for your info
hi have a look at arandoras pictures of the different beach areas of khao lak.
i have just bumped them onto page 1 titled dec.o9 to april 2010
The beaches around Khao Lak are clean and good for swimming except for the low ( green season ) where the sea conditions can change with rough seas. Best times for swimming November to May. Khao Lak is not known for great snorkeling as it has no reefs of the beaches but you do have access to the Similan Islands and Surin from here for snorkeling Nov to mid May.
At #3, you stayed on Bang Niang Beach. Not the nicest of the many beaches here. Next time try the beaches just North of there (khukkak and Pakarang). I think you will find them much clearer.
