I keep writing about Hua Hin attractions, this time quite pop, this is not a mountain of bats or Black woman. However, visiting them may be quite interesting for sophisticated travelers, given that the temple on the mountain is not quite usual. And the beach next to this mountain is generally considered one of the very best in the area.

Khao Tao Beach
Moving from Hua Hin, we first pass by the same name Khao Tao beach. It is sandy, uncrowded, sometimes it seems so abandoned. I doubt that foreigners often bathe here, rather local And so no worse than the city huahinsky the beach.

There is no one else besides the locals.

Khao Tao Mountain and Temple (Wat Tham Khao Tao)
Next we come to the mountain with a large statue of Buddha at its top. I originally thought that the mountain and the mountain, what is there to watch (by the way, Khao in translation is a mountain). But walking along narrow paths, climbing and going down the regular ladder, throwing periodically Look at the sea surface, I did not really want to leave. Yes, there are many what is unreal, in fact, the entire territory of the temple rolled up concrete, but did it quite nicely. I caught myself thinking that in me woke up the thirst for research, and so wanted to go through each ladder to see where it will lead me. Thats true somehow, everything on Khao Tao is cozy, and compact in toy form. Be at my own personal mountain would probably also make a similar one out of it anthill with moves and houses.

From here, Khao Tao Beach is perfectly visible.
If you do not be lazy and climb to the very top, then in a thicket of trees the path that leads to the top will go away (go completely not for long, minutes 5). It is a rounded rock, with a view the sea and the beach of Sai Noi below. Actually, the beach itself is no longer go down (it is possible, but not worth it), a separate path leads to it. AND Do you know who I met at her when I went down? Two monitor lizards the size of crocodiles! I do not know who was more afraid of surprises, but we shied away in different directions.

Sai Noi Beach
As I already wrote, this beach is the best in the vicinity of Hua Hina, so many settle nearby and ride there on a bike. The areas around are very calm, but right next to the beach shelter at all a little, not a city after all. To me personally, Sai Noi Beach seemed like some kind of island beach, because it is surrounded by cliffs, around the jungle, houses are almost invisible. As a rule, on the mainland the beaches are all flat and nature is dull. Compare with the city beach Hua Hin, beaches in Pattaya and Bang Saen. So being here, you can completely forget that you are on the mainland.

However, things are not always as good as in the pictures. the internet. On my arrival, the beach was just a ton of trash like природного, так и
человеческого искусственного. And water It was muddy and not at all turquoise, in general, not a bounty even once. It’s me all that bounty / non-bounty often depends on the weather: will clear and without storms – get the landscape from the image, but no – get Black Sea Although the latter also happens sometimes, oh how beautiful.
If you look from a different perspective, we will see trash
You can get to the beach of Sai Noi, as if on the path from the Big Buddhas, descending from Khao Tao mountain, and on the usual asphalt the road. If you ride a bike from the temple, then there is right around the mountain and along the lake there is a path, a path that is clearly visible on google maps. Or you can go on the other side of the lake, there is a better road. must be. And if you have time, then after the beach you can drive a little further along the highway and see a mangrove park thickets.
