Khanom is a small, quiet fishing town with beautiful beaches, a little off the beaten track, but still quite easy to access. It is an ideal stopover for traveling in southern Thailand. Nai Plao Beach is the place where you will find most hotels and restaurants.
Long seaside roads meander between cows grazing under coconut palms before ending in isolated bays. Shaggy mountains hide unknown waterfalls in a short stretch of coastline, where you can relax on an empty piece of sand or watch teal waves break from a rocky viewpoint. The beaches extend for about 50 kilometres in Khanom and Sichon, two districts straddling the Gulf of Thailand in the far north of Nakhon Si Thammarat province.
A stay in Thailand presents all the qualities of a country that you choose for a complete change of scenery holiday, the landscapes are unique and green. It is a total immersion in the heart of a multitude of temples, fauna and flora and several thousand islands offering fine sandy beaches with uncommon colours.
Pretty and placid Ao Khanom, halfway between Surat Thani and Nakhon Si Thammarat, sits quietly along the blue waters of the Gulf. Overlooked by tourists flocking to nearby jungle islands, this pristine region, simply called Khanom, is a valid choice for those seeking a serene beach setting, not marked by entrepreneurial businesses. The waters are free of jet skis to protect local pink dolphins, which makes the area quiet and unspoilt. Excursions lead visitors to observe dolphins in their natural environment.
One of the last virgin tourist places in Thailand. A paradise where swaying coconut palms, green landscapes, limestone mountains and almost pristine beaches still remain in their natural beauty. Aava Resort & Spa is located on the beautiful beach of Nadan, a 9 km stretch of pristine golden sands and clear blue water. Khanom is known for its rare pink dolphins. The inhabitants of this region are proud of this rare animal species and wish to protect its original idyllic living environment on the Khanom coast.
