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.

Thong Chai Mountain:
You can have a good view of Bankrut beach from the top of “Thong Chai Mountain” where you can enjoy the vast bay and rows of coconuts trees in the distance. On top of this mountain stands a huge sitting Buddha statue of “Phra Kittisrichai” which was established to celebrate the 60th birthday of “Queen Sirikitt”. This is also the site of “Krom Luang Chumporn Ked Udom Suk” Pavilion, which is deeply respected by mariners.
The white sand kissed by crystal clear water. It enjoys a good reputation as a location with comfortable accommodation. Here you can spend your days in an absolutely calm and serene ambience in perfect harmony with nature.
Ban Krut beach is very long and quiet beach road length of 28 kilometers.
This road is a road along the long beach and the sea beside us along the way. It also has a mountain to climb. It is not very high, but quite steep in strava that slope up to 17 degrees.
The road conditions are very good cyclist's paradise.
