Kantary Resort Beach / area?

We (couple) are looking into several hotels and thinking that Kantari could be an option for 3 nights.We love swimming in the sea and will also do an excurstion to either Similan or Surin islands for snorkeling. Is Kantary's beach/sea a good option that we can combine these activities ?

PS We will be renting a motorbike so I guess that distances will be little issue.

Thank you !!!

The Kantary is located on Pak Weeb Beach, the most beautiful of Khao Lak's beautiful beaches. There are beach restaurants to both sides but no shops in the area and you are about 20-25 minutes by shuttle/taxi from the centre of Khao Lak. You can book tours to the Similans or Surins to your right on White Sand Beach.

If you intend hiring a scooter I hope you have a licence for driving one in your own country, otherwise it is illegal for you to drive one in Thailand. Also scooter hire does not include any insurance so you will need your own which will be invalid if you are driving illegally.

The Kantary is beautiful as is the beach and pools. You will have a great time.....but 3 nights won't be enough!

Glad to hear that. A lot of people don't and put themselves and others in danger, sometimes with tragic results.

Enjoy!

The beach at Kantary is beautiful, the pic in Arandora's photo tag is taken on the same beach about 300 metres south of Kantary (at The Boatyard a great beachfront cafe. I also agree with Parkers 3 nights is not enough, we stayed 5 and that could have been longer.

Hi

My partner and i are spending 10 nights at the kantary in December and i am wondering whether there are many restaurants within walking distance. Last December we stayed at the beyond resort and were spoilt for choice with restaurants close by, especially boom boom restaurant . Do we have anything similar near the kantary or can we walk from there up to the restaurants near the beyond?

Thanks again.

To the left of the Kantary you first have Sip Song Restaurant then the excellent Boatyard on the stretch known as Coconut Beach. To the right you have three restaurants on White Sand Beach then further on around the headland (taking care not to try and get around if the tide is in) there is the Rim Lay just before the Pullman Katilya Resort. From there you will be familiar with the stretch to the Beyond and across the creek to the Mai and the restaurants there.
