Khao Lak

Where the adventure begins

Easy to get to, very hard to leave. The perfect spot to begin exploring the West Coast dive sites.

Khao Lak, on the west coast of Thailand’s mainland, is located only one hour drive from Phuket International Airport. Mile long white sandy beaches as far as the eye can see.
Bordered in the south by the Khao Lak National Park, and the famous Khao Sok National park in the north lies this region nestled in a picturesque landscape at the bottom of a tropical mountain side.
Khao Lak is the ideal starting point for day trips to the Similan Islands, or a liveaboard trip to Richelieu Rock, Koh Tachai and Koh Bon.

Dreaming of lifelong holidays? Spending your working hours with thoroughly happy people right beside the pool bar? And being the one who can make them even happier by organising unforgettable diving and snorkeling experiences on the Andaman Sea? Yes, that’s running the Sea Bees Dive Shop at JW Marriott in Khao Lak! This part of the world is so relaxing with its endless beachfront and stunning vegetation and that’s why I love it.

Now, as it is the monsoon season, he had expected it to be raining a lot more; he had wanted to experience a …


Dive the islands of the Similan National Marine Park in comfort and style. Our Catamaran is state of the art and one of a kind in this part of the Andaman Sea. The 'MC Stingray' takes you to the famous dive sites 30 nm off Khao Lak’s coastline. Visit the local wrecks with our MV Runaway. A classic teakwood boat; fast, comfortable and a real beauty.
