Tha Khao beach is rather uncrowded, which is what makes it so charming! But it is not a beach to swim! The water level is, most of the time, very low, the water receding quite far at low tide. But I like its setting with a view of Phang Nga Bay's karst peaks, especially at sunset.

There are a few resorts on Tha Khao Beach, several are a little high up on the mountain and offer an incredible view over Phang Nga Bay. I stayed at Tha Khao Bay View. The view from the breakfast terrace is just stunning and in the evening, in the garden, you have hornbills feasting in the trees. There are also a few restaurants but Tha Khao Beach remains a lot less lively and provided with resorts and restaurants than Pasai Beach or Klong jark Beach. There is also a long pier and a village next to it with wooden houses and shops including a scooter rental shop. Koh Yao Noi's main climbing center is also there and right next to the pier, there is Koh Yao Noi batik workshop.

Not far from the coast, there is a small island called Koh Nok, accessible by walking at low tide. Don't forget to go see the small Tha Khao waterfall 150 meters from the beach.

Practical information about Tha Khao Beach

Tha Khao Beach is, from my point of view, the beach to choose to stay in Koh Yao Noi if you are looking for calm and nature. But you will need to rent a scooter from the shop in Tha Khao village or at your resort (check the regulations and your insurance coverage), or if you are a little more sporty, a mountain bike, to get around. If you want to have everything to hand, prefer a hotel in Klong Jark or Pasai Beach.

How to get to Tha Khao Beach ?

A shared taxi ride between Manoh Pier and Tha Khao Beach costs 150 THB.
