Ban Krut (หาดบ้านกรูด) is a beach on the Northern Gulf Coast of Thailand. It is a 12 km wide and a beautiful beach parallel to the beach road. Originally, there were plenty of bergamots (a type of non edible citrus) makrut in Thai, which influenced the name of the beach. The atmosphere in this area is serene and shady with coconut trees. A fishing community is scattered along the beach. It is a place where tourists can experience the lifestyle of fishermen, the seafood preservation process, and the catching of jellyfish for export.
