 Khao Takiab Beach Bangkok Most Popular Thailand Beach Tourism

Khao Takiab Beach (closest to central Hua Hin) isn’t the most visually stunning by Thai standards, but it does have a relaxed ambience and it’s an area I’ve personally always enjoyed visiting. There are some great local restaurants close at hand and there is easy access to the 19 metre high Standing Buddha (Phra Pang Haan Yad) which looks out onto the sea. A short walk up the hill brings you to a shaded sala area where you can get a cold drink or a a traditional massage and enjoy the view. From here, a staircase leads further up the hill to a temple (Wat Khao Takiab), but if you are planning on venturing up there beware of the monkeys who will sometimes grab hold of bags and personal belongings as they look for food.

Khao Takiab Beach is best reached by doubling back to the main road and following it south. You will soon see a number of hotels set back from the beach which offer budget and mid-priced accommodation. Pathways and side-roads lead through from the main Takiab Road to the beach. This stretch of sand extends south to Haad Suan Sod (Sea Pine Garden Beach) which is a favourite for locals and Thai tourists who enjoy the shade offered by the pine trees and causarinas.
