Haad Rin, Ko Pha Ngan

3.5
#5 of 24 in Parks in Ko Pha Ngan
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.

  • Like most people I went for the full moon party, have been to a few now. It's one of the best nights of your life! Staying on the island and near haad rin beach is better than boating over from koh Sa...  more »
  • I personally wasn't charmed with the place at all, to say the least. We came in a low season, after a full moon party. The streets are empty, only Israelis are walking around so it kinda gets the vibe...  more »
  • Looking just at first glance, that this party is made. The beach is wide and fine. It is not quiet here more. For young people, it is much needed.

Where to stay in Ko Pha Ngan

Stick to the southern coast for the greatest range of accommodations on Ko Phangan. Reasonably priced beach resorts and backpacker hotels offering basic rooms line the shore and the area surrounding the main ferry dock. The southeastern peninsula also hosts decent options, and generally offers a bit more luxury than the establishments located near the docks. Explore the remoter areas to enjoy resort-style accommodations, offering seclusion and privacy at relatively steep prices.
