“why would you swin here”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Not a good looking beach. Why would anyone swim here. The water is dirty and the horses continually going past do not make for a plesant time on the beach. Stick with the pool at your accomadation.

“Looks attractive enough”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

But there is a big sign saying basically "Swim at your own peril" It reminded me of the three terrors of the Fire Swamp in the film The Princess Bride. At Hua Hin Beach the three terrors were jagged rocks, stinging creatures and bad currents.

“The beach at hua hin”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Lovely sandy beach. Very clean and safe and shallow for a long way out. Found the volunteer police on horseback who frequently patrol the beach rather strange -don't know what they would do in a real emergency! Lots of crabs about and there was a warning to be careful of the jelly fish!!!

“Tescoe Shopping Mall”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

I was there last Christmas and into the New Year. Lots of colourful entertainment going on at the entrance to the Mall , made for some pretty pictures and a real festive spirit.
The Mall itself is not open until later in the morning, however you can get access to the Tescoe store down the right hand side (facing on) and do all your food and other shopping in the morning, times I am not sure of but certainly from mine onwards.. For those of us in need of western items they have a reasonable stock but as I was there just after the floods of 2011 I know that several items were in short supply. I found their cold meats way over priced but overall other things were o.k. No need to pack toothpaste and shampoos etc. you can get all your regular stuff there. The Mall has several good shops including Watson, Boots, Clarkes severall A.T.M's. Warning the place you think is the Post Office is NOT, better to go into town to the post office to send any packages, will save you more than half their charge. Lots of good restaurants serving western as well as local food. Overall the Mall has excellent facilities. Ask any Tutt Tutt or taxi for the Tescoe Mall and they will know where to take you..

“Gem of a beach!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Lovely sweeping bay overlooking the Gulf of Thailand. Plenty of room as it is rarely overcrowded. Quality sand - I believe it is imported and dumped on the underlying shingle - still great nevertheless. No pressure from any beach sellers. a really good experience.
