Average beach and sea, especially during the full moon party. Not so crouded in the morning, more people coming in the afternoon. No place left during the party!

Probably the best beach on Phangan from those you can reach on bike from land :) We spent two weeks on the island with rented bikes and tried every other beach too, but Haad Rin was our favorite.

Home of the Full Moon parties - this is a backpacker dream. Good places to stay and cheap booze and food.
