Koh Khao Island - advice wanted

by ultimateangling Online Now Dec 4, 2010 at 10:42 AM

Hi, can anyone point me to any good sites about Koh Khao island which is just outside Khao Lak? I've seen a few nice resorts on here but wanted to know is there much in the way of beach bar / restaurants around them (like on other beach resorts such as Railay, Samet, Lanta, Phangan etc) or are you mainly restricted to the hotel restaurants? We dont like being restricted to just the hotel resort and enjoy having a wander and trying out different places each night. I've heard the only real alternatives are to eat around the pier area. Not much on the web to help though. Cheers.

    it's far from the main area of Khao Lak, at least half an hour or so by car. If you want more choices of restaurants, shops and massage places, stick with Bang Niang beach or Nanthong beach, both are the most developed areas of Khao Lak.
