if you go through khao lak towards phuket there is like a main part of town with a market and lots of restaurants, bars and the best bakery in thailand. there are loads of hotels there (like the palm beach resort/Bayfront resort)just there head to the beach and you'll see the waves breaking near the light house.

Atmosphere

was there in november. left my board home, thinking there are no waves. even though the locas said it was not wave season there where waves every day from 1-3 foot and offshore winds. the beaches arround seemed flat.
it's a family place, relaxed an calm. no one surfs, some boogieborders.
saw some offshore reef there and heard it could get good on its day.
It's a lot different than Phuket, it's not nearly as crowded with tourists, more rural and laid back.

- My wife and I just got back from Khao Lak. It was choppy and blown out most of the time, but when the Andaman Sea glassed off last Tuesday morning, it gave us the best 2-3 foot waves we have had in months. It was awesome. If you go there, hit up Ching, Lai, and Shannon at Pakarang Surf Shop. They're super-cool people, and have boards for rent there. Their "shop" (it's more of a beach hangout) is right next to the Apsaras Hotel in Khao Lak, and directly in front of the best beach break in Thailand. They will do you right.
