Black Mountain Water Park

If you’re visiting with children, one of the must-do things on your list has to be going to a water park. Hua Hin, for such a small town, has not one but two water parks. This larger water park is a bit out of town, but it features a large wave pool and meandering lazy river you can float along.

Vana Nava Water Jungle

This water park is right in town, although it’s a bit smaller. Still, both parks offer thrilling, world-class rides and calm pools and gentle rides for children of all ages.

Wakeboarding

Black Mountain Water Park also has a separate wakeboarding park. The park features a lake with an endless tow-rope system that provides tows and equipment for both adults and children.

Kitesurfing

With its constant offshore breeze and kilometres of beaches, Hua Hin is the perfect location for the growing sport of kitesurfing. Three shops in town can show you the ropes and rent equipment to brave adventurers who want to try their hand at this wet n’ wild water sport.

Whale-watching

During the winter months in the Gulf of Thailand, rare and endangered Bryde’s whales gather to feed. Boats out of Hua Hin offer whale-watching trips out to the whale’s feeding grounds. If this piques your interest, contact Wild Encounters Thailand or ChomWhales for more info.
