Just off the coast from Takua Pa and north of the Khao Lak region is Koh Kho Khao Island. It is a large island that covers 64 sq km. It is a beautiful and mostly undeveloped island but there are roads running the full length so it is easy enough to explore.
The island has a wide variety of vegetation and wildlife but is most notable for the glorious beach that runs right along its western coastline. Kho Khao Beach runs the full length of the island’s west coast. That is more than 17km of beautiful sandy beach with overhanging palm and casuarina trees.
The beach is fine for swimming during the dry season and perfect for long relaxing walks. The beach is still used by turtles to lay their eggs from November to February.
