Beach description

1.5 km is the length of Hua Tanon Beach. Its width - in different places in different ways, from ten meters to zero. From the Red Temple to Chinese temple Guan Yu it is still relatively normal beach, thoughheavily polluted, but further, in the direction of the fishing village is no longer a beach. There are rocks, a concrete parapet, a ruined pier and channels dug up near the shore for mooring boats. The surface of the beach is very contrasting - small gray sand and large brown pebbles. All this is mixed with garbage.

Clean on the beach is not maintained anywhere exceptsites that are adjacent directly to the hotels. The sea on Hua Tanon is shallow, the water rises high during the tides, brings the garbage, and with the ebb it carries it partially. The garbage is mainly of natural origin, but along the village of fishermen nature is much inferior to man.

Unprepared or squeamish people in fishingthe village is better not to go. The stench of dried fish, sewage, wastewater, fishing gear, piles of garbage along the houses and on the shore is not a sight for Greenpeace members. There are few people on the beach, as a rule, these are residents of hotels and resorts, which are squeezed into 40-50 meters between the Ring Road and the sea.

Tourists, if they stop by, in order to take pictures and go on. In case anyone is interested in reading about other places, I have a short overview of all the beaches of Samui, will help you decide on the choice of the beach.

Sunset, depth and waves

The shallow water on Hua Tanone alternatesdeep-sea areas that allow small ships to come close to the shore, but they also allow the waves to destroy the coast. On the beach often come across concrete rings, which strengthen the sandy slopes along the hotels. The entrance to the water is spoiled by stones and debris, in places there are algae.

And if you really want to swim at Hua BeachTanon, the safest and cleanest place to enter the water - near the boulders on its northern part. A vacation with children on Hua Tanon is not recommended, a restless place, dirty, noisy, and not far from the road.

Sun beds and shade

On the beach along Hua Tanona, the fishermen occupiedthe whole shore with boats, tackles, garbage and bamboo houses in which they rest. Opposite the hotels there are sun beds, but - on their territory. Sun loungers, umbrellas, inflatable mattresses and other beach equipment on the public part of the beach - no.

How to find the beach

To get to Hua Tanon beach, you needdrive along the Ring Road to the Chinese temple, over which Guan Di's red-faced head sticks out. This is the middle of the beach, you can turn to the side of the sea anywhere. The main thing is not to drive a turn of 90 °, after which the Ring Road begins to move away from Hua Tanon.
