Haad Rin sunset side to Ban Kai

This long beach runs away from the pier back in the direction of Ban Kai and eventually Thong Sala. The further you get from the pier the better the resorts become and the cleaner the beach. Toward the west the bay is broken up into a series of smaller coves and secluded beaches — this has a remote feel without really being isolated from the rest of Ko Pha Ngan.

Off the beach

There are a stack of options in Haad Rin if you're not fussed about being on the beach. Prices are lower than beachside, though quality (and noise levels) can vary tremendously. Stay closer to the pier and Sunset Beach to avoid the worst noise and crowds.

Haad Rin sunrise side

The centre of all full moon party activity. Generally the places at the northern end of the beach are quieter, while the closer you get to Paradise Club, the louder it becomes. This is the centre of the action at night and the busiest beach by day. The better of Haad Rin's beaches, this is a fine spot to visit, but stay elsewhere if you plan to sleep through the night.
