Banana Beach restaurant, one of the prettier beach-front fish restaurants on Khlong Dao Beach.

Our next stop in Thailand was Koh Lanta, one of the islands off the south east coast of Thailand. The entire west coast of the island is dedicated to tourism, with white saned beaches and clear blue sea flanked by small bungalows or respectfully erected, low rise resorts. The Banana Beach restaurant was Khlong Dao beach, about half way down the coast. As you can see, the day’s freshly caught fish was laid out on ice on a stall on the beach.

The chef was there to recommend ways to prepare each catch, so we selected our fish, agreed with her how it would be cooked, and off she went.

I chose this mackerel with tiger prawns, cooked with garlic and lemon grass.

Freshly barbequed fish, garlic prawns and a pina colada, Served at a table looking out to sea, where we could see the lights of the many shrimp boats on the horizon, preparing to bring in tomorrow’s catch.
