Haad Rin, Ko Pha Ngan
(2.3/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • Haad Rin beach is mostly popular for hosting the biggest party of Thailand if not the biggest in entire Asia which is known as Full Moon Party. The beach is actually quite nice and tidy. it is normall...  more »
  • It is incredible how tourists can become so concerned with the environment in which it is when it is not in their country. You walk down the beach and you have to go looking if you nailed a crystal that last night "have been left forgotten" or thrown into the sea as if they were stones. Gentlemen, please keep haad rin clean.
