Distinctive features of the beach:
– a rim of evergreen, needle casuarin, externally looking like conifers (for which the beach was nicknamed “pine”); – lack of people, if not to say the desert; – no beach infrastructure.
A series of casuarinas stretched for hundreds of meters along the coast. Between trees and the sea – a 50-meter wide, rather monotonous strip sand. Sandy dirty (white + black), pressed, in some places sprouted greens. At Suan Son beach there are no picturesque stones like on city beach, rocks or at least hills like on Sai Noi Beach and Thakiab beach. But you can admire from a distance Takiab and Tao.
Perhaps this is the perfect place for walking and gathering in the shade. chic casuarinas, but someone seems semi-wild and boring. TO the same on windy days – and such occur often in the coastal Hua Hin strip, – sand smoothly sweeps up and sunbathers, and their belongings, and even creaks on the teeth.
Entry, depth and waves
The bottom of the Suan Son beach is sandy, without pebbles and silt, even more gently sloping than on Thakiab beach. Shallow water – for a good fifty meters To climb to the waist, you have to wander about 20 meters, and at least as much – that the water was on the shoulders. It is good to wander here over the edge or splash on the shallows, but do not swim.
Ebb and flow are as frequent as on other beaches of Hua Hin. AT the tide of the sea surrenders its position by another hundred meters, baring the bottom.
The water is more transparent than on the city, but also with an admixture sand. Small crabs and birds were seen from the living creatures. Seashells on the shore almost not.
Sun beds and shade
Casuarinas provide chic shade. On a windy day under them canopy is even chilly. A weekday beach sign infrastructure: sun beds, deck chairs, umbrellas – not noticeable. Familiar looking modest cafes are also absent. Probably beach accessories in the form of sun loungers and umbrellas arise on suan son spontaneously, under demand. For example, on weekends, when to rest tightened company Thais.

Shops and attractions on the beach
Very close to the shore – a specialized complex, quite perhaps an army hotel hostel, designed for Thais. On his territory – a good free car parking, open to all. Golf course not protected from the naughty wind. Canteen, looks like a school, with a small assortment of dishes at low prices (menu in Thai). In the refrigerator – a modest set drinks at prices “7-11”. The walls are decorated with children’s drawings. Staff looks at the farang in surprise.
Stores in the neighborhood not seen.
Houses and hotels on the beach
District Suan Son looks slurred. Neat complex (with dining room and parking) flaunts in the middle of not well-groomed, as if no man’s wasteland For this “virgin soil” and you can go to the sea. More to the right the beach, closer to Khao Tao, right on the beach is a very decent hotel, immersed in greenery and with a pool separated by a thin siam a strip of sand. Great! (Price – from $ 45 / night.) Somewhere among casuarin tops stick out the roofs of similar houses — quite probably “for rent”. There is also a golf club with a sleek field. AND the hotel and the club are part of the sports center of the Thai royal army, but open to all.
