Hat Rin Thailand


Haad Rin Beach is located on the southern tip of the island and is the most spoken about Koh Phangan beach due to the full moon party.

If you’re looking for transport to and from Koh Phangan, you can pre-book all of your Lomprayah transfers. Stay in the Thong Sala area of Koh Phangan and rent scooters for 180 Baht per day. It’s definitely the easiest way to explore the island, and takes roughly 30 minutes to reach from Thong Sala Pier.

Haad Rin Beach can be divided into two sections.

There is a sunrise rise beach and a sunset beach. The sunrise beach (Haad Rin Nok) is the most popular and also the lively party beach in which the Full Moon Party is held. This happens once at the end of each month.

The sunset beach (Haad Rin Nai) is the much quieter beach.

With it having the largest concentration of rooms, clubs and bars, most tourists flock here to get right amongst the party vibe.

In the day time is one of the most stunning Koh Phangan beaches. Considering this is the spot where all the parties happen, we didn’t expect it to be so beautiful.

There are restaurants and shops located in the nearby town, which is just few minutes walk away from the ocean.

Night Life In Haad Rin Koh Phangan

Most of the nightlife in Haad Rin Koh Phangan happens at the beachfront.

Apart from the music and bars on the beach, a famous feature of Haad Rin Koh Phangan are the nightly fire shows.

Given the constant parties in this beach town, the area itself is relatively clean.

We attended the Full Moon Party in July 2018 and baring in mind that we don’t drink and never really party, it was surprisingly not as bad as we thought.

There were a lot more families with young children than we expected and it wasn’t all drunken tourists and vodka buckets.
