There are also great beach bars, offering sunbeds and umbrellas to protect you from the extreme heat.
The waters of Hua Hin are rarely crystal-clear, but they are quite shallow - especially during low tide, and that makes them great for swimming. There are also several spots without any rocks, so they are highly indicated for families. Kindly note that Hua Hin has the peculiarity of extended low and high tides. The difference is about 2m.
Hua Hin Beach is also one of the best places for water sports like kite boarding, jet-skiing, sailing and other fun beach activities. However, it's not indicated for activities like snorkeling, diving, fishing as the waters are rarely clean, and the ocean floor turns to mood.

The Dangers of Hua Hin Beach
Thankfully, Hua Hin is a relatively safe beach without any sharks lurking in the waters. There are, however, various sights of box jellyfish in the Gulf of Thailand, so be cautious when swimming. Wearing a thin piece of clothing is enough to deal with the jellyfish. Also, pay attention to the beach flags, and when you see yellow or red flags, do not enter the beach as there are strong currents which are quite deadly.
