The peninsular beach area of Haad Rin draws visitors with its Full Moon Party, plus lively bars and restaurants lining the sand. The shoreline remains fairly clean, although litter is normal considering the nightlife. Hit the beach by day, or head here at night to enjoy the fire shows, bars, and entertainment. Of course, the monthly lunar festivity is a must for party fans. Do beware of jet-ski scams, when operators force you to pay for damages you did not cause. A visit to Haad Rin represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Ko Pha-Ngan driving holiday planner to plot your vacation.

This place is soul destroying. Dirty, ugly,suffering from a permanent and crippling hangover. They should just bulldoze it to the ground and start from scratch.

Fantastic beach and clearly enjoyed by those in the know. Some resorts in the northern side.. home to the legendary full moon parties.. and perhaps any other event or excuse for a party. Several other resorts and shops / restaurant under repair or construction .. but the beach is flawless. Make it a day.. Getting here.. take a taxi / scooter / Songthaew.. it is on the southern tip of Koh Phangan.. and the road to this piece of paradise is a 5km strip of hills and hairpin bends. Still worth it.
The location of Full Moon Party. Beach by day and by night all the restaurants have tables and chairs out on the beach, fire twirlers and music. If you walk further down the beach away from the bars there are some quieter little hang out spots with hammocks and hot cacao. Love this place, will definitely be back.
