Pak Phanang coast and Talumphuk cape
are the sites of a severe storm in Nakhon Si Thammarat in 1962. The coast of Pak Phanang is a long beach
with the Talumphuk cape to the north jutting out into the Gulf of Thailand like a crescent moon. The part where
it is connected to Nakhon Si Thammarat bay has some villagers, while the coast on the gulf has a beautiful,
pine-lined beach. To get to both places, take Highway No. 4013 (Nakhon Si Thammarat-Pak Phanang) and then
16 kilometers on a road to Pak Phanang. Both sides of the road are shrimp farms and mangrove forests.
