Hat Rin, Ko Pha Ngan
(2.3/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
The peninsular beach area of Hat 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 Hat Rin and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
