White Sand Beach

Hi all, we will be staying at the Bhandari Resort fro 21 nights from the 9th April. Can't wait !! How far is white sand beach from the Bhandari ? I have looked on the maps but they are vague and the Bhandari doesn't seem to show on Google ? Was it previously the emerald ? Thank you

You will need a taxi from Bhandari to White Sand beach. It think it took us about 15 minutes by taxi (covered pickup with seats in the back) - just grab one from the supermarket and negotiate a fare. We paid about 500 but there were 9 people. I think if there are only two of you it will be cheaper. If you are looking on google maps, you could always put in Nang Thong Supermarket as this is very close.

Use Khao Lak Bhandari Resort and Spa and White Sand Beach to locate them on Google Maps. It shows 19 minutes by car. A song thaew will take a little longer. Have a walk up to the left while you are there to the Boatyard on Coconut Beach or go there instead. Same and much nicer location and you get free sun loungers there if you dine whereas there are many more on White Sand Beach and you have to pay to hire one whether you dine or not.

Hi, thanks for your replies. If I search for the bhandari via google maps the Wanaburee appears ?

https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Wanaburee+Resort+Khao+Lak/@8.6322846,98.2424862,642m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x3050e815555552cd:0xe6bccd0d97afe0f9

Even on closer inspection I cannot see the Bhandari ? I'm confused

Bhandari Resort and Spa appear a little bit further north of Wanaburee (the upper part of the map). Look for the red umbrella similar to the one that identifies Wanaburee.

Sorry, too late to add to my edit above. Possibly the problem is that you are not zooming in close enough. The Wanaburee does appear by itself with the first magnification shown when you call up the map.

The tinyurl above takes you to:

https://www.google.com.au/maps/search/bhandari+resort+and+spa+khao+lak/@8.6458635,98.2341909,14z/data=!3m1!4b1

I typed in Bhandari Resort and Spa Khao Lak into Google Maps.

If you use the resort's official name as advised in post #2 it shows the Bhandari, not the Wanaburee.
