Ban Krut

Ban Krut (บ้านกรูด) is a beach village on the Northern Gulf Coast of Thailand, about 160km south of Hua Hin. A beach road runs parallel to a 12km long, beautiful beach shaded by coconut and casuarina trees. Originally, there were plenty of bergamot oranges, similar to Thai kaffir limes (má~​grùut มะกรูด) which influenced the name. The atmosphere in this area is still serene. A fishing community is strung along the beach. It is a place where tourists can glimpse the lifestyle of small-scale commercial fishers.

Get in





There are a couple of restaurants at the beach. One of the best is Platoo Fish Restaurant, all fresh from the sea and of course Thai spicy. Don't expect European food.


No nightlife to speak of.


Besides: There are about 20+ resorts and some guest houses to select from.
