Restaurants opposite Laguna Resort

Hi

I shall direct this question to Arandora (cozz he Knows everything)

Hi Alan would these restaurants be in a walking distance from the Paradise resort and would the walk be safe enougth after dark i.e is there a path or do you have to walk along the side of the main road?

Question 2 is it still possible to walk from Sunset beach to the restaurants on the beach by the Laguna resort?? And another Alan will be arriving 5th December (Kings Birthday) will Airport Taxis be a problem?

Best Regards

Manicus.

Hi Manicus,

It's probably a 15 - 20 minute stroll downhil from the Paradise to the Laguna and the restaurants on the other side of the highway just before it. It is a proper walkway on the beach side of the road and is particiularly nice walking down at sunset with fabulous views over the coastline to the north. Coming back is a bit more of a struggle uphil and you'll probably end up going further into "the strip" in Bang la On anyway and catch a taxi.sangthaew back.

There are no restaurants on the beach near the Laguna only those belonging to the nearby resorts. The independent beach restaurants on Nang Thong Beach are at the northern end just before it crosses over to Bang Niang Beach.

I wouldn't have thought taxis to Khao Lak from the airport on the King's Birthday would be a problem but I would book in advance with Boss at Cheaper than Hotel Taxis aaaaaaas he is cheaper (and very reliable) anyway. Contact cheaper_khaolak@ymail.com

Amongst the restaurants opposite the Laguna is there a Thai fish restaurant that anyone can recommend?

Also is there a place very near the Laguna, on the beach perhaps, suitable for a cheap lunch?

Will be there end of August!

Thanks. L

Most restaurants offer a decent selection of fresh fish and seafood. Try the Everyday 2 which is just opposite the Laguna and ask for "inside out fish". It is a speciality of the chef.

You are only a few minutes walk down the highway to the start of the dual carriageway that is lined with restaurants on both sides. The Phu Khao Lak on your right at the beginning and Khung Seafood a bit further down are both very good but you will pass others with fish displayed on ice for you to inspect and select.

On the beach, the Laguna itself has a snacky type restaurant, then further along to the right one belonging to the Suwan Palm Hotel, a bit further the excellent restaurant of the Nang Thong Bay Resort and just beyond that a couple more. To the left the beachfront restaurant of the Khao Lak Resort serves very good lunches with a variety of choices at not unreasonable prices. Further along the Wanaburee also has a beachfront restaurant.

Thanks Arandora. Understand you are in hospital so wish you a speedy recovery.

What price would an average (everyday type) evening Thai meal cost? There are three of us so would like to get some idea of what we are budgeting for.

Will all the restaurants you mention be open in two weeks time?

Thanks L.
