We didn't find anything special about Haad Rin. Seems to be famous for the full moom party so perhaps if you're into it, it's worth a visit. Everything is about the party, the beach is dirty and the whole place has a bit of a wild rowdy vibe. If you're looking for a more peaceful, beautiful area with a lot... More

A small traditional Thai island town that has been built up to provide for Full Moon revellers and adopted a more western feel over the years. You're more likely to encounter foreign hotel/bar owners and their Burmese staff, than Thais. The town is quiet inbetween parties, so you get a better chance to see the place in comfort. Lots of...

Not for rest. Just for party time. To much waves on the beach. If you like swimming sometimes not possible. You should go on some other beach. Haad Yao or Haad Salad.

Haad Rin or the Sunrise beach is the all night party and the Full moon party beach. Normal nights it has 3 bars with dancing music and fire shows. While it also hosts the "Magic Mountain" a bar located on a rock mountain on the beach and where "magical" things happen, and it also plays nice tunes. Drinks are super... More

Cool place to sunbathe, swim and play volleyball. Just do not go far out in the water when the red flags are up.

In the day, it's a long beach, white sand, loads of places to lie, nice sea (can be a bit choppy!) and loads of bars and restaurants to chill in whilst looking at the beach. Music starts playing from tommys bar in the afternoon and there's people playing volleyball etc - nice beach! At night, it's a whole different ball... More

We went there in the evening to see a fairly lazy beach with restaurants and people chilling around. We climbed onto Mushroom mountain and spent a few hours overlooking the beach transform into, why its called one of the party centrals of the world. Amazing energy. Chill crowd to hectic spots with all out madness. The full range of musical... More
