Tao Beach is on the same stretch of coast as and beaches of Takiab and Suan Son: between the mountains of Takiab and Tao, closer to last. From the mountain it is separated by a canal, a fishing village along its shores and bay.
It is quite wide (about one hundred meters), a sandy stretch beach, without signs of stones, reminiscent of the city beach Hua Hin – in its poorly populated, unpopular places.

If we consider the beach as a place comfortable for swimming and tanning, then Tao beach refers to that with some stretch:
a) There is no familiar infrastructure in the form of sun loungers, umbrellas, sports equipment rental and, sorry, toilet.
b) Sandy beach: coarse sand + shells, but so It seems that Siam, however hard it may be, cannot reach it. On hundreds of meters in the sea – ankle-deep water. You want to plunge – tortured to wander. At low tide the sea and does reserve huge pimples.
For those who are on short visits to Hua Hin, this beach may will be uninteresting: there is better and closer to the city. But for the winterers, whose time a great deal, and the “old” beaches are tired, Thao beach will be very welcome. Mainly – its immediate proximity to the Temple of the Turtle (Wat Tham KhaoTao), from where the coast – in full view. So, the beach and the temple can be considered comprehensively.
Temple of the Turtle – a kind of place, replica, a sort of mix of of all sorts of things, in a mess scattered inside and outside the rock, but united by walkways, paths, trails. It is worth spending a couple of hours of personal time at least for the magnificent views opening from the upper part. And then finish the cultural program relaxing on the beach of Tao.
The beach is partly shady: the coast is trimmed with vegetation. Calm: mostly locals or fishermen wander here. Naturally clean: there is no one to clean up or litter.
In the vicinity of the beach – several hotels and a good restaurant. On the coast itself is a decent hotel consisting of villas for any kind the strength of the company. Part of the houses – overlooking the sea. Prices – from 3 thousand baht / night (low season) to 12 thousand baht (high season).

Houses and hotels on the beach
Be sure (and I insist) check for discounts or special offers on the excellent Roomguru service. He is fast and easy will show you discounts in all existing reservation systems. AT the same Asia, for example, there are lots of offers on Agoda.com, which much more interesting than on exactly the same hotels in Booking.com.
