Towards the far (northwestern) end of Haad Rin Nai, Sun Beach is the first of a cluster of three traveller-orientated places that offer very affordable fan-cooled and air-con bungalows in a sleepy beachside setting.

Sun Beach is the first of the three, closely followed by Starlight Resort and then Bird Bungalows, and is the best kept, home to a well tended lawn garden with palm trees for shade and relatively well spaced out bungalows. The first couple of rooms are air-con, in not the most attractively designed duplex chalet, followed by a series of traditional wooden bungalows (with hammocks) which, in turn are followed by some more air-con concrete rooms (this time in a pasty green colour).

Rooms are very no frills. The fan-cooled bungalow we were shown had just a base sheet, but the room was otherwise adequately clean – at least with the slung hammock you won't need to spend so long inside the room. There's a medium sized beach restaurant and that is about the package, this is no frills beach living.

One note, it can be quite a challenge to find anyone here to help you and rates are best described as flexible, there was quite a long discussion in Thai between the two people we eventually found, discussing what they should charge me, and we'd suggest outside of Full moon Party periods, anything more than a night or two's stay should be able to earn you a discount.

There is little to distinguish Sun Beach from neighbouring Starlight, though Bird is smaller and more compact. All three are very laid back and outside of full moon periods it can be a real struggle to find anyone!
