Khao Lak is an area of outstanding beauty. Pure white beaches, cascading waterfalls, spectacular primary forest, idyllic lagoons, estuarine mangroves and wildlife abound. The Sarojin is surrounded inland by five spectacular and adventurous national parks, including the magnificent primary rain forests of Khao Lak and Khao Sok as well as one of Thailand’s largest natural mangrove ecosystems. The Similan and Surin Islands Marine National Parks, among the world's top dive sites, are less than an hour away by boat. Phang Nga Bay, renowned for its sheer limestone formations and hidden caves and lagoons is 40 minutes away by car.
The historic old town of Takuapa, which lies 20km north of The Sarojin, was formerly the most important town on the west coast due to vast and precious tin repositories and mining in the area. The old town retains much evidence of its historic importance as the provincial capital including several old teak houses and the Governor's residence.
