Central Khao Lak is clustered around Nang Thong beach’s pleasant crescent of sand. Here is where you’ll find the greatest concentration of resorts and restaurants on the beach and the main road behind it.
Running parallel to the beach, about 300 metres inland, is the main road which runs through Khao Lak. This is where many of the dive shops, restaurants and budget accommodation are located.
Nang Thong supermarket on the corner of the road heading down to the beach is a great landmark for orientating yourself and is roughly the centre point of central Khao Lak.
Down by the beach there is a smaller road running along the beach which gives access to the main seaside resorts.
