As the area is relatively undiscovered, compared to other popular Thai tourist areas, here are some maps showing the location of Bang Saphan and Suan Luang Beach, and a detailed street guide.

Please note that this diagram is not drawn to scale, nor does it show bends and curves in roads. However the distance between grid reference C8 and C13 is approximately 1.6 kilometres, and from C8 to F/G8 is 1.2 kilometres. From C13 to F/G12 is 0.8 kilometres.
Please also note that the roads do not have any official names, so the notations in blue next to each are just for easy reference. All properties will be denoted as being in a grid reference box number on their description page.
