Haad Rin

Haad Rin, Koh Phangan 2011

The most famous place on the island – Haad Rin – is located at the southern end of Koh Phangan. This is where the legendary Full Moon Party takes place. Haad Rin consists of two beaches: Haad Rin Nai and Haad Rin Nok.

Haad Rin Nai is a long, light sand beach, which offers a fantastic view of Koh Samui. At high tide, the beach can be very narrow and especially the southern part is not suitable for everyone to the relaxing sunbathing since Haad Rin’s Harbor is nearby. This is the boat from Bangrak on Koh Samui.

With a length of over one kilometer and wonderfully white and fine sand, the Haad Rin Nok is one of the most beautiful beaches in Koh Phangan. More than 30 years ago the first backpackers were stranded, and the first Full Moon Party celebrated.
