Takiab Beach After Dark

Post by Big Boy » Sat Nov 04, 2017 8:32 pm

We took the dogs somewhere different tonight for a change we decided to walk the beach South of Takiab to Suan Son. I've not been on that stretch of beach at night for at least 10 years, and boy, how it's changed.

OK, we're at the bottom of low season, so it was unsurprisingly dead, but how nice it looked. An ample car park by the ferry port, and for a few hundred yards South it looked really nice with beach bars/restaurants brightly lit. It reminded me of the difference between Pattaya and Jomtien many years ago.

I'm sure this isn't news to many of you, but I was so impressed, I just had to say something.

Yes I agree
(But as a newcomer to Hua Hin I can't comment of what it was like before)

I also take my dogs there for a run about sometimes ,one of the restaurants on the beach ( with Huskeys outside ) even allows us to dine there ( with my own dogs ) which is nice

The Panburi forest park is nice also

Any other places you can recommend to take the dogs walking in Hua Hin ??

Cheers

Yes, we met one of the Huskies. We were a little wary when it came towards up (2 of our dogs are fine with other dogs, and can well look after themselves anyway), our smallest dog is mental, and is very aggressive (even though he can't bite :? ). The Huskie and another similar sized dog were lovely. There was only one other dog that made a lot of noise as we crossed it's territory, which was well pleased with itself when it had chased us from it's land :D .

I wouldn't take my dogs to a restaurant, but I think we'll definitely give the area a try. I love the thought of the big car park. We use Pranburi Forest Park beach occasionally also.

The area we use regularly is Soi 75 to Marakesh. We used to go further, but we are restricted in how far we can take our oldest dog these days. It is a fairly well lit stretch of beach with security guards watching over you all the way.

I generally walk that way before it gets dark but the new car park is great, I go there about four when the beach starts to get shaded and walk most of the way to Khao Tao and back, it's very pleasant.

Probably the only beach with decent parking in the area. We used to go to Cha-Am or Suan Son for the beach, but this gives us another option.

As far as parking goes, the other option for me is the other side of Khao Takiap going on to Hua Hin Beach, there is loads of parking on the inside of the divide near the bus stop/ police station. No one seems to use it, apart from busses but it's legal parking and you get shade on one side, depending on the time of day.

Wow, I've never thought about going to the beach after dark from the parking lot's direction...! If we decide to go for a dinner to the beach we always take the road and then go to an alley where you can get to the certain restaurant where you want to eat that night. Thanks for the tip! :bow:
