The atmosphere at Cha-am is different from Hua Hin
The atmosphere at Cha-am is different from Hua Hin. The beach is fronted by a long row of casuarina trees and its is more spread out. It is in fact the longest stretch of sand in all of Thailand.
In addition, it is closer to Bangkok, making it popular with Thais who motor in from the Big Mango for a day at the beach or a couple of days in the condo they have purchased in one of high-rises fronting the beach.
The Thais love to snack while they play in the water and the beach is chocablok with vendors selling everything from cotton candy to grilled horseshoe crabs. There are also numerous opportunities for watersports, including the inevitable jet-skies, para-sailing and banana boats. There is an abundance of deckchairs and umbrellas for rent and numerous bathhouses where you can use the toilet or wash the sand off with fresh water.
