Destination guide

Khuekkhak – a quieter Thai coastline

Further north up the Andaman Coast from the buzzing bars and expat dives of Phuket, Khuekkhak offers a totally different vision of seaside Thailand. Cotton-white bays of sand lapped by a glinting turquoise sea come enfolded by high mountains. Crowds are rarer than on the forever-Instagrammed islands and you could find Khuekkhak vacation rentals that open onto secluded sections of beachfront and ocean. Lazy days of tanning and dining on BBQ-grilled seafood can be balanced out by adventures in the nearby Khao Lak-Lam Ru National Park, home to waterfalls and wild tapirs and more.

Activities

Khuekkhak promises relaxation

Pining for some classic tropical R&R? Khuekkhak vacation rentals can surely oblige. You shouldn't even need to seek out the swish villas with on-site pools, although you can if you like. Many Khuekkhak vacation rentals hide between the luxury resorts and groves of coconut palms, just meters away from the beach. Just stroll to the shore in the morning, plant your umbrella, lay down the towel and enjoy hours of soaking up the rays by the Andaman. Sailing trips, scuba dives and snorkeling are all there for when you want to add in a little Thai spice.

Weather

Find Khuekkhak's seas calm and its beaches dry

Like the rest of the Andaman Coast, Khuekkhak's year is divided in half. There's the dry season and the wet season. The latter is when Khuekkhak vacation rentals are at their best. Between November and March, the sun shines for most of the day, there's hardly a cloud in the sky and the seas are calm and lapping. May marks the start of the monsoon, which can bring heavy downpours and storms to the Khuekkhak shores – it's not the time to arrive if you were hoping to work on the tan.

Natural features

Khuekkhak – a combo of coast and jungle

Khuekkhak has the whole cocktail of tropical draws. There are beaches, like sparkling White Sand Beach on its northern edge and the long, palm-topped run of Khao Lak Beach itself. The southern end of the district is encased by the Khao Lak-Lam Ru National Park, which includes some truly beautiful shoreline that's almost always empty of crowds. Inland, that reserve becomes the province of giant teak trees and climbing vines, trodden by tapirs and macaques, carved by dramatic waterfalls and slithered by vipers.
