We covered this national park in one day as per the itinerary made by us.
We first did the phraya nakhon cave. As we skipped the first mountain via boat to laem sala beach we reached inside the cave by 10.30-11.00. The hike was tiring but the cave was well worth it. Its not at all hot or crampy. Enough space in the cave and very cool cave.
Then we did the khao daeng boat trip, sam roi headquarter museum and bueng bua marsh and tower in that order. All this is covered in a single ticket inside the national park. The khao daeng boat trip may be skipabble though it did not take much of our time.

There are many parts to this national park, not just the famous Phraya Nakhon Cave. Once you pay the 200 thb entry fee, you can visit all sections of the park without extra charge. If you come from Hua Hin, I would recommend this itinerary: First visit Phraya Nakhon Cave, as it's the main attraction. Then if you have any energy left, you can drive to the southernmost part of the park to the visitor center. Here is a short boardwalk leading you through the mangroves. Takes about 15 minutes to walk the circular route. Dusky leaf monkeys can be seen. They also have interesting information about the park, and clean toilets. Not worth a special trip here, but once you have driven to the cave, this is not much farther. Then I suggest driving to Sam Phraya Beach. Spend an hour or two enjoying an empty beach in a very scenic location. More clean toilets, and a good place to eat lunch. This beach, in my opinion, is worth a special trip if you plan to spend the day, or the night (they have houses to rent, or you can camp). Very peaceful. Lastly, you can stop at Sai Cave. Sai cave isn't worth a special trip, but again, if you've come this far you might as well see the cave. Not the best toilets here. From there it's an hour's drive back to Hua Hin, a full day. I spent about 8 hours on this itinerary, but you could do it in a little less if you push it.

A very nice park. The tour consists of a relaxing boat ride along the mountain range and on the lotus covers lakes of Sam Roi Yot national Park. There are many colourful birds to see on the lake. The temple in the cave is wonderful and for the adventurous there is a steep climb to the top of one of the mountains (through meadows and forrest) to a limb stone cave.

Khao Sam Roi Yot is Thailand's first marine national park, but the park is a lot more than just a beach and a bit of sand. The sprawling park includes the famous Phraya Nakhon Cave, two other caves open to the public, Laem Sala Beach, Thung Sam Roi Yot Freshwater Marsh, Bueng Bua Boardwalk, and more. Entrance fee for foreign visitors is 200 baht, which is well worth it. Most visitors focus on going to Phraya Nakhon Cave, but people should not miss the other great features of this park.

Perhaps the most unique feature of Khao Sam Roi Yot is the Sai and Kaeo stalagmite/stalactite caves. You’ll need a head torch or a flashlight to venture into these massively haunting caves. Once you climb down past the entrance, it becomes almost pitch black. For those of you who don’t bring your own headtorch, you can rent a flashlight for 40 THB at the entrance.

Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park is stunning.

At the base, there is a lovely beach area (where people can also camp with permits) and there is a hike up the mountain to see the Phraya Nakhon Cave. We organised a guided tour just through our hotel concierge, and we ended up being the only two on the trip and it was great!

There were two ways to make it Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park when we visited. You could either hike, or catch a boat road. We were able to catch the boat ride over; which was pretty pain free and easy but is also only open depending on tides. Otherwise, you can hike there.

We did visit prior to COVID (November 2019) too, and understand the cave is closed currently. When it is opened, it is a must see.

You need to time your visit too to make the Phraya Nakhon Cave during that magical hour when the sunlight hits the temple. Morning tours are the time to catch the sunlight. We arrived just on about 11AM and it was almost over (in November).

The hike uphill was a bit of effort, and was very hot with the humidity. There were rangers along the track, who checked in on us and our guide a few times. When we reached the cave though, it was so inspiring. We even had it to ourselves for a while.

When we returned back down, we had lunch and cold drinks waiting. Then got to enjoy a few hours on the beach. There are seats you purchase, and from memory were very cheap.

We visited the Phraya Nakhon Cave with its royal pavilion and monkeys standing guard. We took a boat from the park entrance to the beach then hiked up the hill/mountain to the cave itself.
It is a steep climb, but not too long (about 30 minutes I think); better to have some good solid shoes. Once inside, you have some nice views of the royal pavilion and while hiking up you do have some nice views of the surroundings. There is a semi-covered restaurant where you can get food or drinks near the beach and it was quite handy because just as we were climbing back down, we had a tropical downpour! Once you take the boat back to the park entrance, there are several restaurants on the beach. We had a nice lunch at the one on the far left when you are facing inland with your back to the beach.

We only visited the huge marsh area in this park. Lovely day, a weekday, and very few other visitors in the park. We were able to hire a wooden rowboat and skipper. Accessibility note: boats were pulled up out of the water and could be accessed by stepping right in on stable ground. Quite safe and secure. Boat had a small motor, which was only used on occassion. Spectacularly beautiful landscape - huge mountains right up to the edge of the marsh. Was concerned about mosquitoes, but they were not an issue. Marsh is huge, and largely undeveloped/natural. Many birds, many types. Also, lotus were in bloom, which is very lovely. Very peaceful and relaxing ride through the marsh, observing amazing birdlife. A special place.

Wow 🤩 ! It took a long time to reach it as it is not an easy path (be aware if any medical condition) but really worth it!
