The relevant Khao Lak excursions
Things to do in Khao Lak
If you’re looking for attractions, the Khao Lak area bursts with natural wonders: sandy beaches, lush national parks, exotic tropical islands, and soothing waterfalls, all within easy reach of the many accommodation options.
All these things to do and see are unique opportunities to explore this magnificent area’s wonders.
Attractions of Khao Lak will attract all types of visitors throughout the year. Water sports and island hopping are the key activities in the region throughout the high season (from November to April), from snorkeling and scuba diving on the islands of Similan or Surin to sunbathing and playing beach volleyball (or any other beach sports) on Khao Lak’s never-ending coast.
The Andaman Sea is too rough for swimming in the low season. Still, the hinterland of Khao Lak offers exciting hiking opportunities to discover in the jungle as well as beautiful waterfalls.
Young turtle hatchlings are released back to the sea at Thai Muang National Park Beach, which is celebrated every year during the first week of March.
Volunteers are encouraged to join in on the fun to help raise awareness about the different tortoise conservation projects they’ve been doing.
The turtles also come to the shore between November and April to lay their eggs.
The turtles are placed in a nursery for conservation purposes and incubated until they are sufficiently large to be released back into the Andaman Sea.
If you’re in Khao Lak during this time, it’s a worthwhile effort to visit the tortoise conservatory or the beach itself.

When the tsunami happened, as most of Khao Lak’s land is flat, there was little escape.
If you’re planning to visit, you’ll find the Baan Nam Khem Tsunami Memorial Park, as well as another memorial site where you can see a large police patrol boat that was carried by the sea strength 1 km inland.
