Since the beach is not popular among travelers, the infrastructure of the resort can boast only a few hotels (including premium), a complex of villas. However, for the comfort and level of service can not worry, they are at the proper level. To your attention SPA-salons, fitness centers, bars and cozy cafes, playgrounds for the youngest visitors.
How to have fun at the beach
An interesting feature of the beach is the fact that visiting it, you will not see a single umbrella or sun loungers. All due to the fact that the Mai Khao beach belongs to the national park. Starting from November to February, it swim large turtles and lay their eggs, and behind them ... sharks to profit. So we recommend a trip to this beach on the transfer of May - the month of October.
Mai Khao beach infrastructure is weak - a couple restaurants and massage parlors, water park Splash Jungle, which has seven thematic categories. In addition to water activities you can play sports games (basketball, football, tennis or volleyball). For hiking trail is great Thachatchay - You will be charmed mango swamps and wooden bridges on the fauna and flora will tell information signs.

This time is great for fans of kiting and windsurfing. Snorkeling and diving lovers are advised to visit the southern part of the beach called Karon-Noi. After a day of entertainment, you should pay attention to the night - go to the bar with an interesting program or disco.

Those who like shopping - shops, shopping center Karon Circle, where you can buy souvenirs, sunglasses, clothes and shoes at a reasonable cost, and the night market.
