  Richard Dorings information:  
  Khao Lak Sunset Beach

The 500 m long, golden sandy beach, bordered by two green hills, with rocks extending into the sea, one of these rocky outcrops is known as Elephant rock, and is suitable for children to play on. Below the road, two resorts are in close proximity to the southern slope. The northern hill has some high class bungalows that are also available for holiday rental. The forest of the National Park rises to an amphitheatre immediately behind the road. In the monsoon season this region is very humid, this can sometimes make sun bathing uncomfortable.
