The beach is just a short distance from the main road accessible by tuk-tuk from Khao Lak town. If you’re looking to spend your whole afternoon in Khao Lak, then the White Sand Beach is the best place to be.
Here’s how to make the most of your afternoon in the White Sand Beach.
1. Have a private beach experience
One good reason to spend the whole afternoon in the White Sand Beach is the private beach experience that it gives. The long stretch of white sand and the vast warm water of the Andaman Sea, make the place not crowded and busy. As a result, you can essentially have your own private beach wherever you decide to spend the whole afternoon.
2. Swim in the warm, shallow water
While you’re at it, it’s best to explore and swim in the warm, shallow water of the White Sand Beach. In fact, the beach itself is popular among families with children of all ages, given the vast water area yet safe ocean. This is because the water is shallow for quite some distance out to sea. You may even walk at least 50 meters from the shore and still stand flat-footed on the sea bed.
3. Stroll on the white sand
The amazing stretch of white sand goes on for miles. The beach itself is long, which is ideal for strolling along to cool off with sea breeze. As the name suggests, the sand is indeed white and smoothe. It’s best to remove your slippers and walk barefoot on the ground. You can do so under the scorching heat of the sun while enjoying the beauty of the vast expanse.
4. Savor a great dining experience
The white beach is strategically dotted with beach-front restaurants where you can have a sumptuous meal. In fact, there are three excellent restaurants with cute dining huts in the center. You may want to visit one of them and have a hearty meal.
