Khuk Khak Beach is one of the longest, sometimes quite wild but always beautuful, beaches in Khao Lak.
It's fine, white granular sand stretches for sevaral kilometres but only contains three resorts with a handful of beach restaurants cum bars and massage places near to them.These, as with most throughout Khao Lak, close during the Low Season because of weather conditions.
The beach is divided in two by an inlet to a lagoon and in times of rough weather or extreme high tides the ocean can become very rough and inadvisable for swimming.
On other occasions though and mostly throughout the High Season, its gently shelving into the ocean nature makes it safe and popular for swimming. It is also very popular for walking with visitors both from resorts on it or on adjacent beaches.
Other than the restaurants and facilities of the resorts and the small independent ones on the beach, some of which are among the best in Khao Lak,especially for seafood and offer wonderful venues for dinner at sunset, Visitors go by shuttle or taxi into Bang Niang or Bang La On, 10 or 15 minutes away respectively.
The southern end of the beach goes across to Bang Niang Beach and to the north across the creek is Pakarang (or Pa Ka Rak) Beach.
