The best time for swimming
There’s a jelly fish season in Hua Hin, so be careful from June to October and especially after it has rained.
Throughout the year, you might see the big round jellyfish washed up on the shore on your morning walk. There are reports that it is worse during the rainy season, from July to October and anytime after it rains, there might also be little stingers in the water around that time, too.
There are sea snails that wash up on the shore very occasionally and are poisonous if touched, so keep an eye on kids to make sure they don’t pick them up. There are also sea nettles, a type of jellyfish, that are clear but have a brownish tinge in parts. These are the ones that sting.
Stay out of the ocean during these times: after it rains, when the water temperature is warm, when the breeze is coming from the sea and when the water is murky.
Most resorts have some incredible pools either overlooking the ocean or right besides the ocean.
The InterContinental Hua Hin Resort has a beautiful pool that unfold across the manicured lawn of the resort. Choose a cabana, a deck chair, or lie on the tiled beds in the pool that overlook the ocean.
