Takiab Beach offers a good variety of interesting accommodations, though the beach is not great

Takiab Beach as delineated in our beach map is the southern end of Hua Hin's 20 kilometres of long, straight coastline which runs from Cha-Am to the big, beach-blocking mountain of Khao Takiab, just south of here. This one and a half kilometre patch of sand is entirely urban, with a mix of private homes, high-rise condos and resorts lining the beach. The main road is set more than 300 metres back from the beach, allowing plenty of room for resorts while keeping the traffic and noise away from the beach.
.
With six beachfront resorts mapped on a relatively short beach, Takiab Beach is home to more resorts than any another part of the Hua Hin coastline. But despite the variety and generally high quality and creativity of the resorts here, this area does not have a very good beach.
.
Like much of the upper Gulf coast, this has seen its beach eroded by the building of beach walls along its entire length. These walls cause the sand to be washed out to sea when big waves arrive during the Northeast Monsoon season, and in some years this proves quite devastating. Following a rough monsoon season, this beach can lose so much sand it gets completely swallowed by the high tide, with the waves splashing hard against the walls. With no sand in sight it’s impossible to walk along the beach at such times, forcing guests back to the main road when they want to go anywhere. However, after some months the sand may be slowly replaced by the waves. So it’s never sure what kind of beach you will meet here.
.
At low tide you can be sure of lots of sand, often 100 or 200 metres of it stretching far out. These sandbanks, with fishing boats stranded high and dry, can be fun for walking and playing on. But note that the strange tides of the Gulf of Thailand – there are just two each 24 hours instead of the usual four – can see high or low tides lasting all through the day. That can have a big impact on a beach holiday here. See the photos in the gallery above.
.
The style and quality of beach accommodations here varies from basic 3-star to super luxurious 5-star.. The colonial era design of Worabura Resort & Spa is outstanding, especially when contrasted by its lush beach gardens. This offers a full spa service, children's activities and is a weekend favourite with well to-do Thai families from Bangkok. Chom View is less creative, offering well-priced seaview rooms and suites from a high-rise block. The Rock Boutique Resort utilizes creative, modern design tomake its guests comfortable in its long, narrow footprint running from main road to beach. Baan Talay Dao is one of the originals on this beach, and has beach cottages set in a jungle garden, a great beachfront area and children's pool.
.
The Hyatt Regency is the Grande Dame of this area, with its luxurious 5-star accommodations in low-rise blocks spread through magnificent tropical gardens along a 250 metre beachfront. To compensate for the poor beach this offers a huge winding swimming pool with an artificial sandy beach that is fun for kids. Guests can choose among many green, open-air areas for relaxation, or retire to the spa with massage and body treatments. The evening Happy Hour in the beach bar is a favourite with locals.
.
Perhaps the major advantage of this part of the beach is relative peace & quiet, with easy access to the seaside restaurants, bars and varied attractions of both Hua Hin town and the Khao Takiab area, plus the ultra modern facilities of BluPort Resort Mall. This luxury, beautifully designed shopping centre, plus the nearby openair Cicada and Tamarind markets (Friday Saturday & Sunday nights only) are all within walking distance.
