Khao Lak in southern Thailand is a mountainous region, just 60 miles north of Phuket, that boasts some of the most incredible beaches in the country - so much so that the region attracts its fair share of tourists every year, looking for that perfect Thai beach scene. Brightsun Travel has a great selection of beach holidays to Khao Lak all year round that will take you to an incredible part of Thailand this holiday. As well as fantastic beaches, Khao Lak also provides access to some of the best dive sites in the country, in islands just off its shores, plus National Parks that contain spectacular mountains and forests, perfect for memorable days away from the coast. At the Khao Lak–Lam Ru National Park you can hike up mountains, and through evergreen forests, swim beneath dramatic waterfalls, and discover some of the quietest stretches of sand in the region. The park is also a great spot for wildlife viewing, as it provides sanctuary to several species of bird, including a range of eagles, and the elusive tapir.
Also in Khao Lak, you could go on a water sports adventure of a lifetime in the Similan Islands. The Similan Islands are a small group of islands in the Andaman Sea, protected by National Park status, which offer beaches galore, as well as coral reefs for the perfect snorkelling trip, and huge underwater granite boulders for more adventurous diving excursions. The most famous dive site in the island group is Elephant Head Rock, where you might be lucky enough to spot whale sharks gliding through calm blue waters.
