Excellent beach with amenities. Virtually empty during week days. Gets crowded on weekends. Eateries courts just behind. You can order on the beach too. It's military maintained and cleaned. The military run public toilet (just one with some military photos in front) requires you to take off your shoes before entering public toilet (you can use their flip flops or... More

Easily accessible (by single-gear bicycle) pleasant tropical beach, inside military base 5km from centre of town, Plenty of cheap food on sale at the beach. Tends to get very busy with Thai weekend holidays Saturday/Sunday, but plenty room for all

This is my favourite beach in the area, situated on the Air force's wing 5, the beach is long with plenty of loungers and tables and various restaurants offering food to your table on the beach, very safe for children lots of sand (watch out for the tiny crabs, don't worry they hide when they see you coming) Bring a...

Lovely beach inside the prachuap air base grounds. Stunning scenic views of mountains around. Pay 10baht for a sun lounger or seats. 30 baht for an inflatable doughnut ring to mess around on which are great Craic. It's a much nicer beach than the one in prachuap town. We'll worth going the extra few miles to get to it

This is a great place if you're looking to wind down at a beach and play with cute monkeys who will get up close to you as you can tell they have been accustomed to humans. They are not aggressive but will grab food out of your hand or if you're carrying a bag of corn cobs, so do not... More

We hired a self drive tuk tuk to come here as it wasn't easy finding a driver to take us back from the beach. Beach was nice, very warm water and very safe for children. It was low season and we ordered beer and meals from our deck chairs. The meals were very ordinary but I think not many eateries... More

Drive to Prachuapkhirikhan, about 100km south of Hua Hin and find an excellent, almost deserted beach. Ao Manao is quiet and clean, has ample parking in the shade. Local food and bathrooms are available. The beach is accessible by driving through the local air base called WING 3
