Lamkaen Beach

Lamkaen Beach (also spelt 'Lam Kaen') is famous for among other things its surf. People don't normally associate Thailand with surfing, but just before and after the monsoon the waves can get quite big. From March to May the waves in Lamkaen can get up to 10 feet high. You don't have to bring a board with you as you can hire them in Khaolak town (Nang Thong/ Bang La On). You can also find surf instructors if you are new to the sport.

The beach at Lamkaen is white sand and has plenty of tree cover. It is a quiet area with just a few resorts, the most noteworthy of which is Khaolak Diamond Beach Resort and Spa that has comfortable rooms next to the beach. There are a few small restaurants and shops in the area, but not much nightlife. The center of Khaolak is just a few kilometers north of Lamkaen and is easy to reach by taxi or motorbike.

Nearby attractions include elephant trekking, the 18 hole 'Navy Golf Course' and a Thai cultural show. Khaolak Diamond Beach Resort and Spa also organize snorkeling trips and excursions to the local temples. For those interested in environmental and community projects there is the Baan Tha Din Daeng Tourism Community at Lam Kaen (Address: Moo 4, Tambon Lam Kaen, Thai Muang, Phang-Nga 82120.
