Bankrut Beach

Ban Krut beach is located in Tambol Thongchai, Bang Saphan district, Prachuap Kiri Khan province. The beach still maintains its natural surroundings since it is not yet well-known to general tourists like other nearby tourist destination such as Hua Hin or Cha-Um beaches. 

Only 382 km. from Bangkok, or 150 km. from Hua Hin, your weariness from the few hours journey will melt away with the sight of panoramic golden beach, blue sky, clear water, and the calmness of Ban Krut beach. 

The beauty of peaceful nature along with the amicable character of local people are the charm that bring visitors back to Ban Krut once they have visited. 

For generations, livelihoods of Ban Krut villagers depend on local natural resources both onshore and in the sea. Most people here are fisherfolks who catch fish, clam, squid, cuttlefish, and crabs depending on seasons of the sea.  Many people in this area also maintain coconut farms. Coconuts from this area are famous for its quality; foods and Thai desserts cooked with these coconuts are very flavourful.
