Hat Ban Hua Thanon

Beach in Hat Lamai & the Southeast

There might be quite a lot of rubbish here, but this beach just south of the Muslim village of Ban Hua Thanon is a picture for its fishing vessels moored in the water, ancient, disintegrating boats on the sand, kids playing around and the palm tree forest that comes right up to the sand. It's a very photogenic area, and doesn't attract sunloungers or sunseekers, just those keen to discover weather-beaten texture and charming vistas.
