Haad Rin, Ko Pha Ngan

(2.4/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
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. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Ko Pha Ngan holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Haad Rin and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The beach is worth to be one day, is better to go to the North which are less exploited. Yet you still advisable and best without a doubt nightlife. Highly recommended to go with friends.
