Taraporn Bungalows

Taraporn, west of Chalok Ban Kao, is a largely quiet spot with a private stretch of sandy beach surrounded by boulders.

Photo of Taraporn Bungalows Babaloo Beach Bar is close by though and while most nights it remains chilled and relaxed, when they throw a party it carries on until the early hours. Snorkels, masks and fins can be rented at the reception desk. However the water here can get a little murky, so you may want to take your snorkel further down the main beach where the water is clearer. Taraporn's bungalows are nothing fancy but they are spacious and in a good location. Plain wooden huts on stilts line the rocks at the top of the beach and feature covered decks with hammocks. Plenty of tree cover around the huts provides a retreat from the sun after a day at the beach. A boardwalk leads guests from their rooms to the friendly bar and restaurant and then further into the centre of Chalok beach, a short distance away. Rooms will often be discounted when staying more than one night so it's worth bargaining if you plan to stay a few days or more.
