Maikhao Beach Activities

What to Do in Maikhao Beach

Mai Khao used to be isolated from most areas because of its distant location as well as its National Park status, but this is not the case any more. The opening of Splash Jungle Waterpark at West Sands Resort at the beginning of 2010 promoted Mai Khao to a must-visit destination, especially for families with young kids.

However, it is hoped that Mai Khao still stay as beautiful as ever with its lovely long causarina-lined beach and very little development.


Splash Jungle Waterpark

Splash Jungle Waterpark covers 6,400sqm (4 Rai) of land and cost around 150 million baht (US$4 million) to build. It is located inside West Sands Resort on Mai Khao Beach. This attraction was designed by the Canadian company Whitewater Industries, one of the world’s leading water equipment makers with parks at Disneyland and SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida and more than 3,000 others.

Splash Jungle Waterpark features numerous waterslides of varying heights and speeds as well as a 335-metre ‘Lazy River, Boomerango rides and a wave pool. Read More...
