The vast stretches of beach in Mai Khao, once a nesting area for the giant leatherback turtle, are home to various aquatic and relaxation activities.
You'll get in some beach time at Mai Khao Beach and Sirinat National Park. Step off the beaten path and head to Spas and Nai Thon Beach. There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Naiyang Beach, look for gifts at James Bespoke Suit, identify plant and animal life at Gibbon Rehabilitation Project, and take some stellar pictures from Takeoff Landing.
