Karst uncrowded beach?Hello, friends,
I know this has been already addressed, but things change so quickly that I will dare to ask again. We are a couple with grown-up son/daughter, will be in Thailand mid-end-December. Is there a chance to find a beautiful beach, karst scenery - uncrowned? We love nature, do not dive (may snorkel), would like to have some boat/jungle excursions, and, of course, relax seeing a beautiful sunset. An impossible dream?

1Over 17 million tourists visited Thailand last year. Probably more this year. I don't think there is anywhere in Thailand worth going to that tourists have not been to already! If you do find a remote beach area it may not be easy to get there! Tourist money pays for the nice highways and public transportation to get to these beach areas. With only a few tourists visiting these "uncrowded beach areas" you may have fewer choices for accommodation, restaurants, etc. Even if you did locate some remote beach area you may be the richest person on that beach, compared to local villagers! Not to mention that December, especially closer to Christmas and New Years holidays is when you have the MOST tourists in Thailand at one time!
Check this place out. Ko Sukorn. (I have never been to this place. I like having people around, lots of people to talk with, more things to do and easier to get to!)

3THIS is what you want ! - picture of Poda Island off Krabi in 1989 . Back then there was only moderate number of people visiting that island and you could get bungalow for 50 baht. Nowadays there may be times of day when Krabi beaches not so crowded , but they quite built up.

6You will find uncrowded beaches on the Gulf coast. Google Sanawan B & B. You can have the whole beach almost to yourself.
No karst or sunsets though.
