PAK WEEP BEACH
Pak Weep Beach is located directly north of Coconut Beach. On the other side borders Bang Sak Beach where you will come by yourself if you take a long walk along the beach. Pak Weep is about fifteen minutes drive by cab to the Nang Thong Beach / La On Village, the center of Khao Lak.
Family friendly beach destination
Pak Weep Beach is often referred to as Khao Lak’s most family-friendly beach. This is because the beach really takes children into account. There are slides, climbing frames, toys and swings in the trees. In addition, the clear sea is usually calm with few waves.
Clean natural beaches
The beach of Pak Weep is interrupted here and there by small rocks and is bordered by trees that provide fine shade. Between these trees are luxury resorts, nice little bars and eateries that sell delicious Thai food. Also massages on the beach are possible. Hiring sunbeds and umbrellas on Pak Weep Beach is not allowed.
About halfway Pak Weep Beach you have to cross a wooden bridge at high tide to continue walking without getting your feet wet. Near the footbridge there are nice places where you can eat and drink something.
Restaurants and bars at Pak Weep Beach
Delicious lunch or dinner with your feet in the sand, who wouldn’t want that? Pak Weep has a nice selection of good but also affordable restaurants. There are a few nice bars on the beach, most have happy hour while the sun slowly sinks into the sea.
The Rock Beach Bar & Restaurant
This bar probably owes its name to the peculiar pointed rocks sticking out of the sand here. There is a cozy wooden bar with seats, sunbeds and beanbags in the sand. You can easily find The Rock Bar by the lights in the trees. Of course there is happy hour here as well. You can find The Rock Bar on the very southern part of Pak Weep Beach. If you walk a little further you’ll come to Coconut Beach where there are also nice bars.
Pason Restaurant & Bar
Tasty and affordable food in a cozy setting. Pason is a super nice place to have lunch in the shade of the trees or dine overlooking the sunset. Between 16:30 and 19:00 it’s happy hour and cocktails only cost 100 baht. There is an extensive menu on which of course fresh fish is not lacking. For the children there are playground equipment and toys.
The restaurants, bars and accommodations selected by us are very well regarded. Nevertheless, it may be the case that the quality of the location deteriorates due to, for example, new management. A location can also close down. To keep Thailand Magazine as up to date as possible we would like to hear from you! If you have had a negative experience or have a own favourite spot in Thailand, please let us know by mail, Instagram or Facebook. Thanks!
Krua Thai Restaurant TIP
Krua Thai is a popular restaurant at Pak Weep Beach. So popular that it’s not a bad idea to make a reservation if you want to get a place here. This restaurant is even one of the best restaurants in all of Khao Lak and has romantic spots under the trees on the beach. The restaurant is located near the canal with the wooden walkway. This restaurant is different than you would think given the location. Krua Thai is not expensive and has a good price/quality ratio. The restaurant is also run by a friendly family. We can not imagine what is left to be desired. Recommended!
Boom Boom Restaurant and Bar
The Boom Boom Restaurant are the neighbors of the KruaThai Restaurant. They also have a good reputation to uphold. The dishes are cheap and tasty. There is an extensive cocktail menu and happy hour between 17:00 and 19:00.
The Freshy Bar is a sweet little van that has been converted into a bar with colorful disco lights. Around the van are plastic chairs in the sand overlooking the sea. Sometimes it doesn’t have to be that complicated, because what else do you need? Between 16:00 and 18:30 it is happy hour and all cocktails are 99 baht. Make sure you’re here because the Freshy Bar is also a beautiful place to watch the sunset. With a cocktail or shake in your hand of course!
Sights around Pak Weep Beach
Pak Weep is perfect for relaxing days by the sea or long walks along the beautiful coastline of Khao Lak. If you manage to leave the lovely beach there are a few fun activities in the immediate vicinity.
Sai Rung Waterfall / Rainbow Waterfall
A beautiful waterfall that is especially worth a visit in the low season. In the high season (dry season) the waterfall can be less beautiful because there is little water. When the sun is shining and you are there at the right time, you can see a rainbow. From the parking lot it’s a half hour to three quarters of an hour walk. The last part of the route is the path dotted with rocks. At the waterfall you can swim and paddle. Thai children and a single tourist glide down along the lower part of the waterfall. A fun and refreshing activity! The Sai Rung Waterfall is located 3 km from Pak Weep Beach.
Not far from the waterfall is the restaurant Klong Koo. Here tables are set up in a shallow part of a babbling river, here you eat with your feet in the water!
