Crossing over the cape and about 2 kilometers away is a rock cave which has a pebble beach entrance. The cape itself is a favourite fishing spot. Avid local anglers return time and again to enjoy their catches.


From White Sand Beach Resort you can see the sun sets daily and the wide beachfront welcomes a cool and pleasant breeze that is nice and gentle especially when the sun is steaming hot. Yearly from October to December a stream passes through a wooden bridge built on a section of White Sand Beach Resort. The stream is part of the waterfall from the hill behind White Sand Beach Resort.


The bungalows are built in 3 rows right on the wide sandy beach, crystal clear waters, and natural surrounding. Most of bungalows are on seafront, the last row has the least bungalows. All of bungalows are built alternately so that every bungalow behind has a fair share of sea view. The bungalows sit on stilts with a few steps of ladder to its balcony. Coconut trees forms part of the environment. The bungalows have air-conditioned, refrigerator, television, bathroom with hot water.



White Sand Beach Resort has a restaurant on the beach. Besides the sheltered area, tables are set in the open-air on the beach. BBQ stoves are ready for some succulent seafood grills or other meaty delicacies. The cook can prepare sumptuous Thai food as well as International cuisines. Barbeque on the beach by night under the starlight is a norm.


Undoubtedly, White Sand Beach Resort where your bungalow is situated is already an activity by itself. Here is the best place to play on the beach, swim in the water and watch the sun sets. Many guests find themselves glued to the beach for days.


However, for those who wish to explore a bit further, one of the popular past time is fishing at the cape which is just a walking-distance away. The more adventurous may take to boating, snorkelling or scuba diving. Cyling, motorbiking, jogging, trekking are also interesting alternatives. Others may prefer to visit local villages, spectacular waterfalls or venture into the rainforest in search of some wild-life sights and sounds.


As the last resort at the northernmost end of White Sand Beach it is a peaceful getaway for many. Behind the main reception is where the long-serving staff and their families live. Here, life is authentically countryside. Fowls are raised and you can see them roaming among the lush green surrounding, at the foot of the hill. Coconut trees abound and your bungalow is part of their family. If you are lucky you may find some monkeys descending from the forest looking for some food or just monkeying around. Here is a real retreat, away from it all, where tranquility rules.
