Take the small road beside Nang Thong Supermarket in the center of Khao Lak down to the beach (aprox 250m). Waves break either side of a rocky outcrop with a large beacon.

Park either on the north or south side of the beacon rock to check the wave. Usually one side is working better than the other depending on the swell direction and sand banks. Nang Thong works best on a westerly windswell and is more sheltered from the prevailing SW monsoon winds than other breaks in the area. A decent righthander breaks off the south side of the rock on a low tide.
Although it's the nearest break to town there is rarely anyone in the water. The mountains of the national park make a great backdrop.
Nang Thong isn't a fantastic break but can have a surfable wave when everywhere else is blown out.
