List of the best beaches of Hua Hin
Hua Hin has far fewer beaches than other resorts, and In general, this city is bypassed by many. The fact is that here beaches are not only bounty, but generally so-so. Forgive me lovers Hua Hin, we will assume that this is my personal opinion and many will actually agree with me. The beaches are small, sometimes not you buy even at high tide. The sand is yellow, the waves are often at sea. AND visually, the beaches are not island-like – flat, flat – without large boulders in the water and palm trees.
Why go to Hua Hin? First, there is a quiet and calmly It is considered almost a European resort, although it looks it is about the same in Thai. There are many Europeans living and resting. Good infrastructure, there are several shopping centers, large supermarkets, large hospitals such as Bangkok Hospital. BUT since the town is small and elongated along the coast (one main road), then you can get everywhere very quickly, and, on shuttle bus.
For me to stay at the hotel is better somewhere in the area city beach (essentially the entire central part of the city). There and a lot of hotels, and the infrastructure will be all at hand, the beach the best.

But winter is better in the area of Takiab. I lived there. Quiet place, not separated from the coast road, with a large number of apartments, but with a low-profitable beach. From him the minibus goes to the city center, it takes about 15 minutes in total.
All Hua Hin beaches
The longest and, as a result, diversified Hua Hin beach. The central part is attractive due to its proximity to the city center, with its cafes and shops; rental (and instructors) kites, water bananas, boats. Weak spot – lack of vegetation on the beach and natural shade.
The northern point is famous for its picturesque boulders on the coast, some flora on the shore, guarded free parking for cars, bikes and shopping malls with a beach souvenir assortment on the way. Perhaps it is the most popular among both tourists and local population. It is always crowded here. Minus – here is natural there is a rental of horses, and there is a specific smell.
The southern part of the beach is the most spectacular; she nestled in the mountains Takiab, on which live hordes of macaques. Tens of monkeys live your life and on the beach. With vacationers coexist peacefully – if to keep distance. In general, in any part of the city beach you can swim and have a sunbath. Throughout its length – the mass of hotels and condominiums. You can get on the route tuk-tuk. More about city beach.
Hua Hin City Beach
The beach is adjacent to the mountain Takiab (on the other side of it – the city), but there are no monkeys on it. It is somewhat reminiscent of the oriental bazaar – noisy, variegated, without clear boundaries, outwardly not very neat. Attractive series of vegetation on the beach, rental scooters, boats, horses. The beach is much wider than the city and more, Sai Noi, and is suitable for playing football. Here you can walk hang out in a lounge chair, catch crabs among the rocks manmade ridge, leaving the sea. Bathe for the most part problematic: too flat bottom.
In close proximity to the beach – numerous condominiums, bungalows, hotels; some overlooking Siam. Getting more comfortable on the car or bike. If the route tuk-tuk, you will have to walk 10 minutes more. Learn more about Takiab beach.
Suan Son beach (Suan Son beach), or Military
Located on the same coastal line as Takiab, approximately a kilometer away from him. Differs not crowded and luxurious systems of evergreen needle casuarinas on the shore, giving beautiful shadow. Our tourists consider it the best place to meditations. For swimming is not quite suitable, shallow water 50 meters. You can sunbathe by grabbing your mats.
The beach is located in the sports complex for the military, but entry is free. You can also use the army a canteen and excellent parking nearby. Will have to get by car or bike: public transport does not go. Or stay in one of the hotels adjacent to the sea and the beach. Read more about the military beach.
Military beach Suan Son
A small area a little further than Suan Son Beach, near Tao Mountain. is he quite wide (about a hundred meters), sloping, without stones and resembles Hua Hin city beach in its unpopular places. Bathe problematic: for tens of meters – shallow water. Sunbathe too less interesting than all others. But wander along the edge of the sea, admire the ships (here is the pier) – completely. Trump card This beach is its proximity to the picturesque mountain of Thao and the Temple Turtles (Wat Tham KhaoTao) on it. You can make a collection beautiful shots – both from the shore on the Tao, and from the mountain – on Siam
Getting to the beach is easy (6-7 km from the city center), but alone: public transport does not go. In general, the area pretty calm, not spoiled by the attention of tourists. More about Tao beach.
Sai Noi beach
Compact beach Sai Noi is located in the south of Hua Hin, 30 minutes drive from the center. According to numerous reviews of tourists, this is the best. place for swimming and sunbathing near the city. And I also consider him best in Hua Hin, it is very similar to the island beach.
Suitable for lovers of peaceful recreation: couples, including the elderly or with small children, lovers, single aesthetes. Uncrowded, fairly clean, rich fallen away with refined sand and shells, with a comfortable depth of the sea. It is a creek between picturesque rocks in framed greenery. The beach can not boast of good food and entertainment like urban. But also distract from contemplation No one will have your own navel: there are almost no peddlers. There are no hotels nearby, public transport is not available. Read more About Sai Noi.

Other beaches nearby
In fact, if you go to either side of Hua Hin, then the coast is not going anywhere and the beaches will continue. Towards Bangkok you can go to Cha Am beach, which is also a resort, just even less popular than Hua Hin. And a little further (even closer to the BPC) there will be a beach known as the Black Babyshche beach. But very close in the side of Bangkok is not worth it, there are so-so all the beaches.
To the south from Hua Hin to Suratthani stretch the beaches. Of closest to Hua Hin, I drove only on Pran Kiri (20 km), where mangrove park is located, and in Sam Roi Yot National Park (60 km).
