To South West
Ban Tai & Ban Khai
Thongsala down to Ban Khai, the coastline is all in lowland areas
and has tong been used as coconut plantation. The flat land allows
the beaches to run uninterrupted for over eitht kilometers, broken
only by streams and rivers that spring from the surrounding mountains.
THe resorts are generally well spaced, have a good deal of beach
frontage and it is always possible to find a secluded spot anywhere
along the long white sand beach. As many of the resorts are close
to Thongsala and Haad Rin, this makes the Ban Tai/Ban Khai area
popular for those who want to be near the action, but not too
near. There is also a small town in Ban Tai with a local market
and fishing pier.
