|Sananwan Beach is situated 7 kilometres south of Bang Saphan Noi, a sleepy little town on the east coast of Thailand 80 kilometres north of Chumpon. The area is one of the few remaining stretches of coastline untouched by tourism with seemingly endless stretches of deserted beach and picturesque fishing villages. About 5 kilometres offshore from Sananwan Beach is Koh Tahlu, an island famous for its idyllic scenery. |
A 5 to 6 hour drive (400km) from Bangkok by Highway #4 will take you to Bangsapan Yai from which you may follow driving directions. If you are driving from Hua Hin take Highway #4 south (200km). The driving distance from Chumphon is less than 100km heading north.
If you have just arrived at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport, you may need a break before you carry on with your holiday. We welcome you to stay at Sananwan Palace - a guesthouse close to the airport, from where we offer a transfer by car to Sananwan Beach.
