Located on the western side of the Gulf of Thailand, Hua Hin has been blessed with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The year round warmth of the seas off the coast of Hua Hin has helped make this city a popular destination for both foreigners and Thais. As one of the oldest and most traditional holiday resorts in Thailand, Hua Hin has become the perfect getaway for families. This attractive and accessible destination city has numerous wide and long beaches that are characterized by their shallow depths and mild currents, which makes any of the beaches a safe and enjoyable choice for families with young children.

Additionally, cheap and efficient public transport makes it easy to spend an entire day beach-hopping. Many visitors consider Hua Hin, Khao Takiab, Suan Son Pradiphat, Khao Tao and Cha Am to be the best beaches that this seaside resort area has to offer.

Hua Hin Beach provides a wide variety of attractions for travellers. In addition to being a clean and pleasant beach, Hua Hin is also lined with some great restaurants that offer authentic Thai food to visitors at very affordable prices. During some weekends and on national holidays, Hua Hin Beach can be quite busy. However, on the weekdays it's easy to find a secluded spot to enjoy the sand and the sun. There as numerous attractions to enjoy on this beach. Jet skiing, water skiing, kiteboarding and horseback rides are just a few of the family-friendly activities available to beachgoers. Once guests are finished participating in the leisure activities, there are plenty of sunbeds to enjoy during the afternoon hours.

Located only 7 kilometres south of Hua Hin, visitors will find Khao Takiab beach. Khao Takiab is much less developed than Hua Hin beach, which contributes to an overall feeling of seclusion. This is the perfect beach for travellers looking to experience genuine Thai culture. At one end of the beach there is a popular attraction called Monkey Mountain. Here visitors will find a hill overlooking Hua Hin Bay that is teeming with hundreds of macaque monkeys. Additionally, a short climb up the hill visitors will find a beautiful Buddha temple that is home to numerous statues and relics. The temple overlooks the bay and provides a great vantage point for taking photos of the surrounding area.

Suan Son Pradiphat Beach is perhaps one of the most charming beaches in Hua Hin. It is a private and tree-lined beach that is perfect for anyone who is looking for a quiet beach experience with the chance to see some exotic birds. It's about 9 kilometres outside the city centre and is a unique destination for those who enjoy a relaxing afternoon away from the crowds. Foreign tourists may stand out on this beach because it is a well-kept secret by the locals.

Khao Tao Beach is very small compared to the other beaches in Hua Hin. However, it is still a great spot to take a day trip away from the city centre. The beach is located in a small cove about 20 kilometres from Hua Hin. It is outlined with rocks on either side, making it challenging to see further up or down the beach. Khao Tao is named for the hill that overlooks the beach. At the top of this hill and through a dense forest, visitors will find an impressive Buddha statue. The geography of this beach makes it seem uniquely secluded and tranquil. Similar to Suan Son Pradiphat Beach, Khao Tao would also be a great place to visit in order to experience a quiet and uninterrupted day at the beach. Additionally, there is a small hut that offers visitors the opportunity to have a relaxing massage. Unlike some of the other beaches around Hua Hin, Khao Tao drops-off quickly, which makes it one of the best beaches for swimming.

Cha Am Beach is an attractive and well-known destination that often draws large crowds on the weekends. The beach is adjacent to a picturesque tree-lined road that extends for miles in each direction. Though the atmosphere here is different from Hua Hin Beach, these two beaches both provide a diverse array of activities. Banana boats cruise back and forth and provide endless entertainment for beachgoers. Moreover, many visitors enjoy spending the day playing football and volleyball. Hundreds of massage shops, cafes, vendors and restaurants line the beach. Cha Am is also known for its excellent Thai food and seafood that can be found just steps away from the beach. All of the attractions and activities are huddled near the beachfront, making it a bit easier to find a variety food of food options compared to the other beaches. On a clear day, visitors can even see Hua Hin's tallest buildings directly from the beach.

Spent an incredible week at this magnificent resort earlier this month. What an amazing place to get away from it all. The villas are incredibly designed with comfort & spaciousness being the top priority. The hospitality by the entire team from the Resort Manager Matthias & Executive Chef Valero right on down to every staff member exceeded my expectations in every way. Thanks for taking such great care of us. I will definitely be back.

This was my first trip to Thailand and I was worried in case I had missed the boat on the Thailand of old. I should not have worried. This small, intimate and friendly five star resort is the most perfect position on a spectacular stretch of beach at Pak Nampran Bay. The emphasis on sustainability and doing things in a green and eco fashion makes you feel like you are also doing your bit. As a passionate foodie, I loved the fact that the menu is created from produce organically grown at the eco farm a few kilometres away. The menu tells you how far each dish has travelled to reach your table. One of my favorite moments was waking up to watch the sunrise from the comfort of my huge squishy bed, which overlooked the beach. Each afternoon, someone delivers a beautiful tray of fresh canapes to your room. You can even choose what time you would like to enjoy happy hour! It's rare to find a high end hotel with such a down to earth, friendly vibe and most importantly of all, a very clear and passionate social conscience. Please keep on doing what you are doing, please don't change. I'll be back and thank you for an unforgettable stay.

My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon on your premises from December 5 to December 12, 2016. Our stay at Aleenta was absolutely fantastic and felt way too short! We enjoyed your kind hospitality, the extraordinary food, the facilities, the massages and the view we had from our room to the fullest. My husband and I are experienced travellers but we have hardly come across such friendliness, kindness and willingness as from you to make our holidays so special and unique. We will surely come back and already miss you a lot. Thank you so very much again!

An amazing experience! We were a large group for a wedding and it was such a nice experience. I actually ended up sleeping on hammock. The food was really good, and all the service was amazing.
