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, Nangtong Beach, Bangniang Beach, Khukkhak Beach, Pakwiep Beach and Bang Sak Beach in the very North. A single beach, namely Khao Lac Beach is located south of and adjacent to Khaolack Lamru National Park.
Khak Beach stretches from Bang Niang Beach with its lagoon for several
kilometres to its northern end at the Coral Cape. The beach shares its name with
the small village, Baan Kuk Kak, that is the local administrative centre, the
location of the police station, the post office, a petrol station and a Buddhist
temple. Khuk Kak Beach itself is sandy and at some places quite shallow. It is
separated into 3 parts by the estuaries of Khuk Khak River and another river forming
a small lagoon.
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.
