andaman coast tourism - deserted beaches

Welcome to the North Andaman — an undeveloped stretch of coastline on the border of Phang Nga and Ranong provinces in Thailand.

N-ACT is a network of people working to strengthen our communities and environment. We have built this site to introduce you to the cultural diversity and spectacular natural beauty of the North Andaman region it is a fascinating place to explore.

Muslim, Buddhist and Moken villages live side by side in harmony. Coral reefs and tropical rainforests are just minutes away from each other.

Fishermen and farmers still survive by their traditional livelihoods, and many communities are now offering visitors a chance to see the area through local eyes.

This website will guide you to an age-old world of villages, beaches and jungles.

It will provide you, the intrepid traveller, with enough information to understand — and indeed enjoy — a relatively unknown section of Thailand as more than just a tourist.

Read on to learn more about the area, getting here, local culture, and how to support volunteering and conservation efforts.

Depending on the amount of time you have available, and your personal interests, there are many opportunities. Join local guides for a village tour, rainforest hike, or a peaceful beach walk. Hop aboard a long-tail boat to explore mangroves and uninhabited tropical islands. Or join with women's handicrafts groups to make batik and natural soaps.

While you are here, make sure to travel responsibly. By interacting with local communities, you can support the local way of life and protect the environment.

One of the best ways to experience this area is to stay with a Thai family in a homestay. Being welcomed into a Thai home is a truly intimate experience that will create life-long memories and friends. Alternately, there are a number of resorts in the area that are only a short drive from the villages. Either way, you will sleep well at night knowing that your time and money are contributing to sustainable development.
