Bang Bao pier

Along with souvenir shops, travel offices and seafood restaurants, the boat pier and tiny village where it begins are home to some interesting budget to midrange choices. While it's a decent hike to the nearest beach, staying at any of these is certain to be a memorable experience.

Bang Bao, southwestern peninsula

The following places are located on the rugged peninsula that forms the western side of Bang Bao Bay. Thin slices of sand that periodically emerge from the mangroves are the only semblances of beach here, but all of the places to stay afford tremendous views over the bay or to the wide western gulf. It's a romantic setting that's also great for anyone seeking peace and quiet.

On the eastern side of Bang Bao Bay, the nearly-white sand of Khlong Kloi Beach draws a mix of hippies and sun-worshipers who often stick around for weeks on end.
