What was once a small local fishing village, Khao Lak is now one of the most perennial favorite holiday destinations in Thailand. It offers a hub of entertainment for all kinds of vacation styles as it is made up of a mix of stunning beaches, breathtaking karst formations, and more serene settings that provide relaxation and adventure all in one.
Speaking of thrill, Khao Lak can push your limits as it provides adventure at every bend – from scuba diving, kayaking, rock climbing, and more. If you’re looking to inject some high-octane energy into your itinerary, the guide below should show you the ropes on the best activities to do in Khao Lak:
1. Deep Water Soloing in Tonsai or Railey Beach
If you want to start your vacation with a heart-pumping bang, taking on a deep water solo activity in Khao Lak offers an adventure of a lifetime as it involves bouldering and scaling cliffs without the comfort of ropes, harnesses, and any other climbing gear.
Tonsai and Railey beaches offer the best spots for deep water soloing as it offers a breathtaking backdrop of the Andaman Sea, while the rock formations dominate the skies with its evergreen landscape.
The sport pushes your limits as the only way up is to climb, and the only way down is to take a leap between 10 to 100 feet in the air and dive into the sparkling water beyond the edge.
2. Freediving on Koh Tao
Khao Lak is home to one of the most stunning and colorful coral reefs in Thailand. There are various scuba diving spots across the island, but Koh Tao is the ideal area for thrill-seekers who want to explore underwater beauty without an oxygen tank.
Freediving, also known as apnea, is not for the faint of heart as it includes diving for a couple of minutes all in one breath. It’s a heart-racing and one-of-a-kind activity that allows you to explore shipwrecks and exotic marine life in a unique way.
3. Off-Road Motorbiking Around the Northern Thai Jungle
If you want to seek adventure on land and explore the beautiful and evergreen jungle of Khao Lak, you can hop on a motorbike and go on an off-road tour through the Northern Thai jungle. Rent a motorbike and scoot your way around Chiang Mai, where you can relish the oceanside breeze and discover the lesser-seen yet just as charming landscapes of Thailand.
The Bottom Line
Khao Lak, Thailand, is made up of a cluster of picture-perfect beaches, national parks, waterfalls, and more holiday destination spots for those seeking adventure in a tropical paradise.
