Bang Niang Beach – the best in Kao lake

Bang Niang Beach can be called the best of all the beaches of the resort Khao Varnish Developed infrastructure is enough for most tourists, but with this is not noisy.

The beach itself is wide and surrounded by palm trees and casuarin trees, throughout you can meet beach cafes, lounge chairs and umbrellas, many hotels go directly to the coast. To me This beach seemed to be a reasonable balance between civilization and number of people.

Beach description

The Bang Niang area I liked the most. He’s some kind of cute calm and tidy. There are many hotels and nicely decorated cafes. That is the impression created.

From the Pechkasem highway, which runs along the coast, perpendicular about a kilometer-long street leaves – Bang Niang Beach Road. Is going from the road and straight to the shore. Along it and on adjacent lanes The main infrastructure of this resort town is concentrated. The same street divides the beach itself into two conventional parts: the north and south.

From where Bang Niang Road goes to the sea, and further to north (to the right) are stone mounds and concrete walls, strengthening the coast (there is a photo), alternating with strips of the beach. The walls form terraces, on which are located the outlets to the sea of hotels. on the beach and cafes. At high tide, near these hotels, the sea is suitable close to the shore and walk through the water will not work.

In the northernmost part of Bang Niang, concrete ends and gives way to palm trees. This is the end of Soi 1, the street that is parallel by the sea. The place is quite secluded, little infrastructure, desolation, there is garbage. There are few swimmers in the sea, but many are walking. Favorite the occupation of holidaymakers at low tide – walking along the beach past hotels, with south to north and back.

Here are newly built bungalow type houses right on palm grove grows on the beach, there are sun beds with umbrellas for hire and do a massage in the shade under a straw canopy. Ends The northern part of Bang Niang Beach is the river, beyond which is located even more northern and deserted beach Khuk Khak.

The southern part of the beach, to the left of Bang Niang Road (photo about pontoon bridge), I liked the most. Here the sand is yellow and small, without stones and shells, the beach strip is very wide, and not The problem is bought even at low tide. Just south are large black boulders in the water and then the river, which begins the beach Nang Tong

Entry, depth and waves

In the northern part of the beach at low tide, it is fine and rather dirty. In the southern part of the beach is wide, and at low tide a strip of sand becomes even wider, the sea is shallow near the coast, but having passed a little further along the water you can swim. The shore goes into the water at a noticeable angle, so that tide depth increases rapidly. Big waves happen in this terrain in the summer season.

The most comfortable part of the beach is in the area where расположен отель Ramada Khao Lak Resort Bang Niang Beach - the best in Kao lake . Further south of the beach, the Black Ridge goes to the sea. boulders. However, they do not interfere with swimming and walking along the beach.

Sun beds and shade

In the northern part of the beach, behind hotels near stone mounds, grows more palm trees and broad-leaved trees. There are also sun beds and umbrellas for rent, houses massage in the shade.

In the southern part, near the pontoon bridge and hotels there are also sun beds with umbrellas for rent, palm trees and casuarin trees that grow in in the morning they give shade, since the sun rises in the morning just behind them. By noon, the shadows almost disappear, and closer to sunset, the sun shines from the sea and there is no natural shade on the beach.

There are many different cafes around the main street of the Bang Niang district and there are the shops. In general, the resort infrastructure in Bang Niang is pretty developed. On the highway there is a market and 7/11. The market works by Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, approximately from lunch until twilight.

Houses and hotels on the beach

Most of the smaller hotels in the Bang Niang area are not located along the sea, and on parallel streets along it the main street of Bang Niang Beach Road, which runs from the Pechkasem highway to the sea. Cheaper housing can be found on the highway, I lived there at 813 Hostel (although this is a hotel).

But then moved to a quiet place in cheap bungalows. The Garden 10 minutes walk from the sea. Actual housing prices better look at the search engine, they depend on the season.

I would advise to stop around the middle of Bang Niang Road, just near the hotel The garden , there is the cluster of all Cafes and hotels for every taste, and the sea is close to the highway / market / 7-11 near. But if you do not want to go to the sea, then settle in one from hotels from the list – you will not lose.

How to find the beach

You can drive to the beach along the main road Bang Niang Road from Pechkasem highway, without turning anywhere. Then you get into that part beach, where there are concrete walls. Next you can turn right onto Soi 1 and follow it to go to the beach any cafe, resort, or lane.

Or you can turn off from Bang Niang Road to one of the parallel side streets immediately behind the Rabeang Guest House, and get to the beach south of the main street, where there is no concrete.
