Around 35km south of Khao Takiab is Khao Kalok. This quiet coastal stretch has a beautiful beach, several restaurants and a cave with a hole through it. It gets its name from this which is translated to "skull mountain" in English. It gets quite crowded with locals at weekends and holidays.
To get there
drive south to Pranburi, turn left towards Paknampran and take the second major turning on the right (not the Sam Roi Yot one). Follow this road for about 10km and make a right at the t-junction, follow the road round and follow the signs. Takes about 40 minutes.
The Khao Kalok area is now under going development and a number of housing estates are starting to appear. No doubt this will attract more shops, restaurants and resorts to the area in the future.
There are some great little restaurants on the beach where you can dine on all manner of seafood at local prices.
Take a quad bike for a spin down the long empty beach or simply relax in the shade of a palm tree at Khao Kalok.
