Our Guide to Thailand’s Bang Niang Beach in Khao Lak

If you’re an extremely active person and you’re looking for a paradise-like place where you can still be yourself, head to Bang Niang Beach.

Bang Niang Beach in Khao Lak, Thailand, is perhaps the busiest beach in the area because of the many sports activities that await every tourist. If you fancy a game of football or volleyball with the locals, you can quickly join games by the shoreline. You can play golf with your family and friends, too.

About 300 meters behind the string of beachfront hotels and resorts is for commercial purposes dotted with Thai massage huts and bamboo beach bars. Moreover, there are tons of beers and food stalls, keeping tourists from going anywhere else. Bang Niang Beach offers so much to do for every tourist who is looking for fun under the sun.

Bang Niang Beach welcomes millions of tourists every year. That’s why you’ll find many resorts squeezed in the middle of the highway and the beach. If you’ve been here before and just went back now, you’ll be surprised to learn that some of the places you stayed in before are no longer around. That’s because they’ve been replaced by the many developments sprouting in the area.

You can do a lot of activities in Bang Niang. This is what makes it a paradise of many faces. If you’ve never been to, book a flight now. Here’s Bang Niang Beach and why it’s an excellent place to be at.

Bang Niang Beach Activities

The beach has undergone many changes to accommodate the ever-increasing number of tourists that flock every year. The changes include activities such as bamboo kayaks and snorkeling on shallow waters.

Snorkeling is an exclusive activity per resort and might need a boat trip. But this is just a small discomfort because once you get to the best snorkeling spots at Bang Niang Beach, you’ll forget who you are. The beauty of the marine life at Bang Niang Beach will astound you.

Shopping Areas

There are plenty of places at Bang Niang Beach, where you’ll be willing to hand over your money. The Bang Niang Market, which is the shopping epicenter of Khao Lak, hosts a long series of makeshift shops made from wood and thatch, selling local delicacies that you can enjoy. There are grilled seafood and all kinds of grilled meats and vegetables. Pair these with a cold bottle of local beer, and you are set for a satisfying dining experience.

If you’re looking for souvenir items you can bring to your friends back at home, you’ll find plenty here. There are sarongs, Thai fashion accessories, Thai silk, and a lot of other local made merchandise. Shopping in this area is a to-do when going to Thailand. You’ll also be surprised to find that shopping here is not as stressful as expected.

Monsoon Season

A lot of resorts at Khao Lak close during this season. However, many resorts at Bang Niang stay open. If you want to go back to this place when there’s less tourist, do so during the monsoon. You can enjoy the entire area with fewer people and at half the price. The waves are more prominent this time of the year, which is perfect for those who love to surf.

Bang Niang is an unusual beach because it is wide and sandy at the south part of the map, while narrow in the northern part. But this is what makes Bang Niang special. Its sand is golden, and its water is crystal clear, making it one of the perfect beaches in Thailand to wallow in and swim.
