Chalok Bay

Stay with Carabao Diving Resort and spend your days relaxing at the beachfront: watch the sunrise over Chalok bay, chill at the diving center, have a dip in the sea or in our pool to cool off and round up the day with a cold drink and dinner on our restaurant terrace overlooking the bay.

The beach here slopes down gently into shallow water so it’s ideal for families with children.

For those who love snorkelling, the bay itself doesn’t offer much, but there are some good spots within walking distance such as Freedom Beach, Buddha Rock Cape and Cape June Juea. You can also walk across to Thian Og Bay (Shark Bay) through a few resorts that connect both bays.

Overall, Chalok Baan Kao Bay is a good place to stay if you want somewhere quiet but still near local conveniences
