We have always wanted to stay at the national park bungalows on the beach and so we booked one night. We virtually had the place to ourselves. It is very quiet in the evenings so bring a good book and a pack of cards. The bungalows are basic but all we need. Clean, running water and fans. They must be booked and paid for in advance. Very cheap – one night cost THB1,200 (about USD30) and that was for all 4 of us. We could have accommodated another 2 comfortably at the same cost There is one restaurant which served an amazingly extensive range of food and soft drinks but no alcohol (not a Muslim area but alcohol is not allowed to be sold in national parks – though you can bring your own).
A lovely place to idle away the hours and beach comb. One day and a night is about right for me – I’ve got terribly itch feet!
Just around the corner from our stretch of beach it was even more deserted. Quite extraordinary considering that this is the high holiday season.
The wind picked up during the night and it was too rough for boats to beach in the morning so we were obliged to walk up and over the headland. I was not displeased because we got lovely view of both bays from the top of the hill.
