Bang Niang Beach at Khao Lak
Khao Lak’s Bang Niang Beach
Formerly a haven of backpacker bungalows, this area is quickly moving into boutique and upscale resorts. Bang Niang played second team to Nang Thong Beach but there is a broad range of development that is rivaling the Nang Thong area.

Long stretches of beach provide the visitor with good morning beachcombing strolls.

New restaurants are popping up as are small shopping centers. These and the local market on the main road seem to be bringing greater numbers of people to the Bang Niang area every year.
An energetic person can walk from Bang Niang Beach down to Nang Thong Beach as the beaches continuous are here.
The Ayara Villas Resort [above] is a favorite in the Bang Niang Beach area partly due to its beachfront location.

One of the great features of the Bang Niagn Beach area is the ability to walk long distances in either direction from the main area. It is easy to walk to far and really tire yourself out with the long walk back, so pay attention to the time or distance or both and turn around BEFORE you start getting tired. Take a bottle of water with you and when the weather is hot, be sure to sit down in the shade and take a rest from time to time.
Lost of beaches to look at in Khao Lak!
