Khao Lak (in Thai: เขาหลัก) is an area on southern Thailand's Andaman sea coast about 60 km north of Phuket with a long sandy beach and several beach resorts. It is centered around the village of Ban Khao Lak and extends to the north until the town of Takua Pa and to the sputh until the Thai Mueang district. The coast here is mostly flat and consists of a long sandy beach interrupted every now and then by river estuaries. The sand colour is orange-beige and the sea water is not too clear, mainly due to all the river estuaries. Khao Lak is an access point to the Similan islands, a group of islands about 60km off the coast. To the north of Khao Lak lies the Khao Sok national park. The nearest airports are those in Phuket to the south and Surat Thani to the east.
