Hua Hin Beach Guide

Tall Palms in Paradise

A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving - Lao Tzu

Hua Hin Beach is a seven kilometre (three and a half mile) long, wide and flat stretch of uncluttered coastline with plenty of room for you to relax in the sun. You can enjoy a variety of water sports, take a leisurely pony ride or simply go for a long slow stroll along the beach.

The resort town of Hua Hin had derived its very name from the headstone rock formation that you can see on the beach in front of the luxurious Sofitel Hotel. Hua Hin is the oldest beach resort in Thailand and has been a firm favourite destination of the Royal family for hundreds of years. 

Bare in mind though that there are many more stunning beaches in Thailand than Hua Hin beach, but should you prefer to get away from the more crowded hot spots and want to be a little closer to Bangkok, then this would be an ideal beach destination. Although there are a small number of girly bars here, there are not nearly as many as in the resort towns of Pattaya or Phuket.

Should you wish for a more peaceful vacation, then perhaps this could be another good reason to visit Hua Hin. Whatever your plans might be, don't leave it for too long, though, as knowing Thailand's reputation for rapid development, Hua Hin could easily become another Pattaya.


Hua Hin Beach

Cha-am Beach

Cha-am Beach is about 30 kilometres (20 miles) north of Hua Hin and characterised by a long row of Casuarina trees on the beach side of the road and an equally long row of stalls on the other side of the road. Here you will find local vendors selling seashells, sunglasses, sun hats, sandals and squid... Well, actually just about anything and everything. 

Cha-am beach is uncrowded during the week where you can relax in private under the shade of the Casuarina trees, take a swim in the warm waters or hire a jet ski and have a blast. But on the weekends it is the Thai holiday atmosphere that prevails and can be a little crowded as many locals descend onto the beach.


Suan Son Beach

Suan Son Beach

Suan Son Beach is a beautiful stretch of beach that derives its name from the sun and the Casuarina trees which line the shores. Belonging to the Army Welfare Office, this beach was originally established as a retreat for soldiers and veterans but it is now open to all. The beach is set in a secluded location and is less crowded than its near neighbours. 

You can spend your time just unwinding and relaxing in the cool breeze under all that shade. Once you have had your fill of fun in the sun you can pop along the way and enjoy a tasty meal in any one of the many restaurants in the area.
