Hua Hin Beach is a traditional beachfront area in the Gulf of Thailand located in Hua Hin in the Province of Prachuap Khiri Khan, to the north of Prachuap City. It spans 8 kilometres of shoreline and encompasses a charming coastal resort ambience, equally fashionable to tourists and locals.
Hua Hin beach boasts bountiful white sands and warm seas for sunning and swimming although horseback riding down the shore remains the most popular tourist attraction. Other leisure activities include watersports, specifically kiteboarding. Additionally, seaside restaurants lifted on stilts offer decadent traditional Thai cuisine options, and there are many vendors selling unique trinkets and souvenirs.
There are multiple entrances from Hua Hin onto the beachfront, the most popular being a pedestrian corridor down Damroen Kasam Road. Naresdamri Road also provides oceanfront access down a lane directly past a Chinese temple and walkway steps leading onto the sand. Access to the area of Hua Hin itself is possible by bus routing from Prachuap City.
The region of Hua Hin is one of the oldest resort areas in Thailand dating back nearly a century, long before the development of Phuket and Koh Samui. The success of Hua Hin is rooted in royal history and an endorsement provided by King Rama VII that first allowed public admittance into the region.
