Hua Hin Beaches

Hua Hin beach
Stretching almost 7 kilometers from the town center to Khao Takiap. Hua Hin is little developed compared to other Thai resorts and considering its size you can always find a quiet little spot. Its name (Hua Hin - head stone) comes from from the rock formations that can be seen on the beach in front of the Sofitel Central Hotel. For those who are a little more adventurous, and witha bit more energy, pony rides can be taken and for those simply relaxing there are plenty of deck chairs, sun loungers and beach umbrellas available for a small hourly charge.

Khao Takiab
The twin hills of Khao Takiab (Chopstick Peaks) are visible to the south down the beach from Hua Hin and one can also make out the 20 meter tall Buddha image at the base of the hills. The walk along the beach is guaranteed to test your ankles.
From the temple (Wat Khao Lad) atop the hill, Singhtoh Island, about 800 meters offshore can be seen and boats to the island can be chartered from either the Hua Hin pier or the small fishing village at Khao Takiab. Be careful of the monkeys wandering the lower grounds of the temple. They're not fierce but enjoy grabbing eyeglasses, pens, and mobiles.
The Khao Takiab area now boasts an increasing number of guesthouses, small hotels, resorts and quiet restaurants.

The beach at Khao Takiab is actually better behind the hill at Blue Wave where there are big expanses of beach and calm shallow waters ideal for children. Locals sometimes play football, volleyball and takraw on the wide flat sands of Khao Takiap beach.

Just south of Khao Takiab is Suan Son (Sea Pine Gardens). The beach is long and quiet and there are small food shops and accommodations.
Entrance is through a military camp--just tell the guard at the gate that you're going to the beach and give him the 10 Baht (per vehicle) entrance fee. Suan Son can get very crowded on weekends.

Khao Tao
Still heading south, beyond Suan Son is Khao Tao where the Sai Noi and Sai Yai beaches are located.
Its mostly a deserted beach and delightful seaside restaurants make it a great venue for a day out of town where you can relax with good local food and a swim in the ocean.
