About Pranburi Beach in Hua Hin
Pranburi is a beachgoer’s paradise, with miles of beaches set against a mountainous national forest and an estuary.
Despite the influx from Bangkok on the weekends, Pranburi’s beaches never get too crowded. And if they do, there’s always somewhere else to explore in Pranburi or something else to do.
Sun worshipers will find that Beach vendors—none of them too aggressive – supply not only umbrellas and chairs for a fee, but also snacks like fruit, deep-fried shrimp or fried squid.
There are no public bathrooms or showers, leaving travelers to rely on resorts or restaurants. But there are plenty of those. In fact, most of the restaurants within walking distance will be at the resorts. Pranburi has some excellent seafood eateries in the village, but they are not walkable from the beach.
What is available are local grocery stores, which can provide supplies for a picnic.
All manner of water sports are available on Pranburi’s beaches, including jet skis, banana boats, canoeing, snorkeling, kayaking—even speed boat trips.
Outside Pranburi, between the village and Hua Hin, are several bays that are great alternate swimming destinations. There is also the Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park—the so called “300 peaks”—which offers tours of all kinds.
