Relaxing on Dolphin Beach
3-Day Khanom Beach Break - Thailand
During the summer months many visitors to Thailand head for the South East islands to enjoy the weather the area offers at this time of year. The islands off this coast can get very busy but in comparison, the mainland beaches are relatively undiscovered and offer a quieter experience than the islands just a short ferry ride away. Here you can enjoy miles of white sandy beaches and swaying palm trees without the crowds. We have found a sea-side resort in the area of Khanom where you will spend two nights. During this trip we will also arrange an excursion to spot the pink dolphins which can be found in the coves along the shoreline.

Your day-by-day itinerary
Arrival into Khanom
On the first day you will arrive into Khanom which is easily accessible from all areas of Thailand. You can take the overnight train from Bangkok or fly into Surat Thani from Bangkok, Phuket or Chiang Mai. You can also visit Khanom after our Giant Trees and Lakes of Khao Sok trip if you are looking for some adventure before you relax on the coast. For the next two days you will stay in a Thai-style resort with a pool overlooking the sea. There’s nothing planned for today so you can kick back and relax with a good book or take the hotel’s shuttle into town about 10 minutes away by car.
Khanom - Dolphin Spotting Excursion
Today it’s time to try and spot some pink dolphins. You’ll be collected from your hotel this morning and taken to the pier to catch a longtail boat out into the bay to spot these unique animals, make sure to keep your camera ready as they often jump alongside the boat. The boat will glide past jagged cliffs and dense mangroves over the smooth water; of course we cannot guarantee you will see dolphins but as they are friendly animals it is highly likely. The afternoon is free to spend as you wish.
Departure from Khanom
It’s the end of this Thailand beach trip and today after breakfast you will check out and travel on to your next destination.
Best time to visit: Late November to late August.
