Map of Khaolak Beach - Phangnga

Nature rearranged the face of Khaolak Beach in the Boxing Day 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami. Dozens of resorts were destroyed and hundreds of souls were killed.

But as resort areas in Thailand always will be rebuilt, Khao Lak has been rebuilt more densely than ever, Even pristine Pakweeb Beach has a handful of resorts.

Pak Weeb is the typical picture postcard beach, lined in part with coconut trees, in others with casuarina and the home of some of Khao Lak's top end resorts. In its centre is the stretch known as White Sand Beach, once one of Khao Lak's best kept secrets, now probably its most popular day trip. ”
