Detail Maps of Khao Lak:
Khao Lak is located about 50 kilometres north of Koh Phuket Island on the mainland in Phang Nga province. Most of its sandy beaches stretch from the Khaolak-Lumru National Park in the South for about 20 kilometres northwards, starting with Sunset Beach, Nang Thong Beach, Bangniang Beach, Khuk Kak Beach, Pakweep Beach and Bang Sak Beach in the very North. A single beach, namely Khaolak Beach is located south of and adjacent to Khao Lak Lamru National Park.
Beach is located 5 kilometres south of the centre of Khao Lac and stretches
from the border of Khaoluk-Lamru National Park south for approximately 800 metres.
The sandy beach ends at a small rocky cliff that separates it in the South from
neighbouring Poseidon Beach. The rocky headland to the North, which is part of
Kaolak Lumru National Park protects Kho Lak Beach from the strong underwater currents
of the monsoon season, so that swimming here is less dangerous.
Khao Lak is spelled in many different ways like Ko Lak, Khaolak, Khao Lack, Khao Luk, Kho Lak, Khao Lac, Kau Lak, Kao Lak, Kau Lac, Khao-Lak, Kao Lak, Kao Luk, Kao Lac, Kao Lack and Khaoluk.
