Beach description

Unlike Bang Niang, which it borders on the north, the area Nang Tong is elongated along the sea and the slopes. And the entire infrastructure focused mainly too along the road. Going to the shore is easier just across Nang Tong Road, it starts from the highway where the traffic lights are, and leads to the sea.

Along the coast stretch large and expensive hotels and resorts. Strip the sand on the beach is quite wide, in some places it ends in concrete the walls of the terraces of hotels, in other places just a small mound with palm trees growing on it. The total length of the beach Nang Tong about 3.5 kilometers. In general, Nang Tong is good and quiet. District, here is clean, lots of greenery and not very crowded.

The southern part of Nang Tong is sometimes called Sunset Beach, there there are several resorts with a large territory, including Khaolak Sunset Resort . Perhaps this is why the beach section is is called. There are few people and beautiful. From Nang Tonga along the shore you can walk along the sea, like north (there is a river through which you can, either wade through or cross the mini-ferry bus) and south to Sunset Beach.

Entry, depth and waves

On the shore and in the water of sand, black boulders protrude, adding picturesque landscape. In general, the whole beach consists of small coves, bends and periodic stones. The sand on the beach is yellow, small and large in places with small patches of small pebbles and seashells.

The shore goes into the sea at an angle, so that the depth at high tide growing fast. At low tide the width of the beach increases to very impressive. You can swim, but from a distance of ten meters from the shore.

Next to the lighthouse that stands on land, a river flows into the sea, but around it is better not to swim, but to walk to the right or to the left, meters 100-200.

Sun beds and shade

Almost all over the beach there are sun loungers with umbrellas from beach cafes. In some of them, when ordering food, they are allowed use for free, in other places lounger should be rented. Almost all over the beach, various trees fringe the beach, mainly casuarinas (in the north), palm trees and sometimes broad-leaved ones.

From them in the morning and in the morning on the beach is formed natural shadow. In the afternoon the sun rises high and the shadows from trees almost disappear, and closer to sunset the sun shines from seas.

At the Khaolak Sunset Resort, the beach is bounded by the mainland stone cape and a mountain overgrown with vegetation, and There are no trees and no natural shade directly on the beach.

There are also cafes and shops on the main street of Nang Tong Road, leading to the sea, and to Soi 1, which runs along the coast. But generally there already not enough, you have to go on the road.
