That road is the one the construction traffic is using, so I guess that's it. They've made the seaward side No Parking, but of course, that doesn't apply to motorcycles - TIT

The sensible way to approach it would be from soi 97, past the flyover as you're heading South. But even then you've got some fairly small roads to negotiate once you get over the train tracks; a lot less of them though.

I know there were earlier reports about a ferry service between Pattaya and Samui, maybe stopping somewhere around Hua Hin, Cha-Am or Pranburi. But as I recall there's no mention of any ferry on any of the signs I saw by the Takiab construction the other week (although I might have missed it). All I saw was that it's for harbour improvements with new breakwaters. There's also a nice picture of people strolling and a few boats, but nothing that looks like a ferry. I think it would have to be a pretty small craft to manoeuver around the new harbour inlet as well. Is there any hard information about this?

At the northern end of Takiab beach the rock wall is being extended and a commercial pier being built to accommodate the new Pattaya>Hua Hin Ferry terminal. Construction started back in January this year, i believe it should be completed mid next year.

Perhaps this needs to be a separate topic. But...

@SydneyGuy, why do you believe this is a new ferry terminal? Do you have a source? A sign? A news report? I saw nothing on the signage at the site to indicate this. I Googled for news about the supposed Hua Hin - Pattaya Ferry (and on to Samui) and there seems to be nothing since July 2015. At that time the reports I found talk about ferry terminals at Cha-Am (just north of Rama 6 army base) and/or Pranburi, to be decided in August (but no follow up). Just trying to find out. A ferry terminal just there would be a great way to ruin the beach I think.

BB's pic at viewtopic.php?f=36&t=30733#p398556 is the same sign I saw and doesn't look much like a ferry terminal, with a few small boats drawn in. The project description at the site doesn't mention anything about ferries either, if I recall correctly. Still dubious!

Yeah, watching that sign it reminds me as a pier for smaller boats like fishing and stuff. And the outlet of the pier seems a bit small for bigger vessels to maneuver in it. Besides, how could the boats from the fisher community exit and enter to the river if there would be a constant blockage from the ferries?
