Ban Krut Information
Travel guide to Ban Krud

Welcome to Ban Krud!
Can you imagine an unspoilt stretch of beach where you can walk with white powdery sand underfoot and barely see another soul. If you can you have just discovered Ban Krut.

Ban Krut is spelt many ways including Ban Krud, Ban Krood, Ban Kruit, Baan Krud, Ban Grud, Ban Kroot and Baan Grood. In Thai it reads บ้านกรูด so we have stuck with Ban Krut which seems to be the most common!

New! Ban Krut Map
We have now launched the first map for Ban Krut which primarily targets the Ban Krut beach road where all of the bars, restaurants and resorts are.

The map is part of a larger publication made for Bangsaphan and can be found in many shops, bars and restuarants in the area or can be downloaded online from the Bangsaphan forum: download the map

Ban Krut Information
Ban Krut is typified by clean air, small fishing villages and among the most pleasant and enjoyable beaches anywhere in Thailand. On these pages you will find out how to book accommodation, find restaurants and see what attractions Ban Krut has to offer.

Ban Krut Weather
The weather is generally favourable but the better months are from November to March which is sunny and warm, April to July when it is hot with some rain and August to October when the monsoon season is in full swing.

At night the ocean is dotted with small squid fishing boats, green lights illuminating the horizon. There is very little development along this coast from Ban Krut to Bang Saphan and the resorts that are here are all low rise bungalow style. The beaches that stretch from Ban Krut to Bang Saphan are all very quiet or even deserted.

Ban Krud Accommodation
Ban Krut has plenty of accommodation with more than 20 resorts of varying from low budget to exclusive. Descriptions and online direct booking can be found in the Ban Krut accommodation section.

Ban Krud Geography
The coastline of Prachuab Khiri Khan province is typified by long clean beaches separated by outcrops, headlands and a few small river estuaries. Most of the coast from Hua Hin south to Bang Saphan Noi is rich with an abundance of flora and fauna. Many are unique to this area.

The economy of most of the province is based on fishing and agriculture. Prachuab hosts the largest pineapple growing regions in the north and seemingly endless coconut groves in the south. Inshore fishing for shrimp and squid is extensive in Prachuab. The province is also the home to deep sea fishing boats which mainly fish the central gulf area.

The start of Ao Ban Krut is marked by a large headland with a temple and a Golden Buddha. From this vantage point near the Golden Buddha you can get a panoramic view of the Ban Krut coastline.
