Welcome to Laem Son National Park
The most accessible beach is lovely, casuarina-backed 3km Hat Bang Ben, home to the park headquarters and accommodation. To the south, peninsulas jut out into the ocean concealing isolated coves accessible only by long-tail. All these beaches are allegedly safe for swimming year-round. From Hat Bang Ben you can see Ko Kam Yai, Ko Kam Noi, Mu Ko Yipun, Ko Khang Khao and, to the north, Ko Phayam. If there's a prettier sunset picnic spot in the northern Andaman, we missed it.
Hat Praphat, 56km south of Hat Bang Ben, is a turtle nesting ground.
