There is a nice restaurant on the beach furthest north of Gracelands which we have tried for lunch and enjoyed, others near the main entrance which we haven't, and several on the adjacent Bang Sak Promenade which has had a makeover since Gracelands opened and as a result of strengthening the sea defences. The first restaurant going left from Gracelands, Bang Sak Seafood, was demolished and rebuilt into now a very smart Café/Restaurant/Ice Cream parlour Thai style. We had a very good lunch there and the dinner menu, particularly fish and seafood dishes, looks very good indeed.See pics to date of Bangsak Beach, Promenade and Gracelands at https:/…

As for mini-marts I think there "may" be one near the main entrance. For supplies you will need to get shuttle or taxi to Bang Niang or Bang La On. For a change though you could get a taxi early evening north towards Takua Pa to the little town of Bang Muang just after the turn off to the ferry to Koh Kho Khao and the Tsunami Memorial where there are local shops and local food, fruit and veg market at the side of the highway and a small Tesco Lotus store next to it.

There's a 7-11 around the corner and if you want restaurants you only need to walk for 5 mins and you'll be in the heart of them.

".... in the heart of them" - for others' information please, how many and whereabouts? Near main entrance or on beach/promenade? And is 7-11 near main entrance?

You're not thinking of Gracelands Phuket by any chance are you?

Thanks arandora useful info.for a relatively "new addition" to the khao lak area as I did not remember seeing to much in the area when it was being built a couple of years ago .i guess there are also some sort of massage sala/shops also setup .

Also guessing there are several taxi options available?arandora any idea what is round the other side of the headland ?

Endee also not sure if you mean the khao lak or Phuket Gracelands? As either there has been a huge amount of building going on or we have have differing opinions on a "heart " of restaurants which to me a packed area with a huge amount of choice .t

Thank you both for your inputs as there is not a lot of info.available for this area of khao lak

At the top of the headland is a large international shrimp factory. Around the headland there are miles of undeveloped beaches until you reach a part used by a local Scandinavian community nearby and then a beach bar and restaurant for the Thai Life Resort then major the fishing port of Ban Nam Khem from where the ferry oKoh Kho Khao departs and returns. If you do walk to the tip of the headland beware of sand flies!
