Most beaches have massage providers. For a stunning beach, look to those in the north of the area. Bang Lut would be my choice. There are a few restaurants nearby in Nam Khem and it's a short ride to Bang Muang and Takuapa for the typically Thai facilities there.

A perfect choice for you Malcolm R, or whoever you are this month.

The main Khao Lak beaches, around Bang Niang and Nangthong, the hubs of activity, though pleasant are not the finest..

Pakweeb and to a lesser extent Bangsak are the perhaps 2 nicest still close enough to the main areas.

The desolate Banglut, is ok for a day visit, but that's about it, and a fair distance from anywhere..

The nicest beaches in Khao Lak are a bit further away from the two main towns. Bangsak beach. Pakweeb and Khuk Khak would be my picks however for us, being able to walk to many restaurants and shops is important rather than have to get taxis every night. We stay in Bang La On which is a nice beach still but not stunning. We usually have a couple of day trips to other beaches like Coconut Beach or White Sands. It is a matter of working out which is more important to you.

There are plenty of good restaurants all over Khao Lak, some of the more remote areas might only have a couple to choose from though. Pretty good massages everywhere.

We then take some day trips to other beaches.
