The Sands Resort, Khao Lak

Hoping to go to new Sands Resort next July but unfamiliar with area. Have 3 young children and wondering are local shops and restaurants within walking distance of resort?

The resort is at the north end of the developed part of Nang Thong Beach and perhaps a 15 minute walk to the centre of Bang La On, the main township of Khao Lak, where there are most restaurants, bars and shops, passing some on the way. As it is not completed yet there haven't been any reports as to whether there will be access to it directly from the highway further up the highway in Bang La On.

If you look at this map the site is just north of the Andaman Beach Resort on Nang Thong Beach walagata.com/w/arandora/Khaoa_Lak_Bang_Naian…

It would be a 10 minute walk to the supermarket which is on the main road , where all the restaurants are open in July...not a hard walk. But in saying that 3 of the resorts on the beach that I know of have golf carts that drive people up to the main road. You only have to walk back which is down a slight hill.
