One of the best beaches in Thailand! Always clean, even the afternoon after the full moon party, which is pretty impressive. There are many bars and restaurants to get food and drink from, many offering cushions to lay on the sand with.

I went to haad rin specifically for the full moon party! the beach is out of this world. there are many places for food and drinks in the town, but it is extremely compact. id advise to get accommodation outside of haad rin as the place is very noisy and is really the party central of the island.

This is about the town although many reviews down page are about the main beach (TRIPADVISOR has a separate page on this – search for “RIN BEACH)”. HAD RIN TOWN is good place to visit providing you miss the FULL MOON PARTY (accommodation tends to be booked out way ahead, prices spike and many joints insist on a 4 day... More

Is it Thailand or Israel? Most of the place in Israelian language. Beach dirty. I think this place is just for full moon now. Supermarket on the beach, what for?!

I didn't like this place. Most of it are for the young tourists which like to drink, smoke and get high. I guess it's the best place for full moon parties. Very crowded and noisy. We preferred the other side with more locales.

We stayed at the Palita Lodge at the end of the beach. Everyday we loved walking up and walking directly onto the beautiful beach. It is true that the beach gets completely destroyed the night of the full moon party. I was shocked to see that it was cleaned up by the morning. The atmosphere on the beach is pretty... More

The full moon party was the craziest party I have ever been apart of. We took a cab to the party and were dropped off outside of the beach where there are stands that supply plenty of alcohol and highlighter painting to prepare you for the party. The streets are packed with people and of course, the party is even... More

Fanastic beach. Very clean, as it was raked with machines early in the morning every day when we stayed. For us 'grown-ups' it is best to stay between the full/half moon parties. Missing parasoles, but recommend to rent a sea-facing bungalow at Sunrise Resort. You will have your own front porch with direct access to the beach. The bars arrange... More

It has a variety of beach activity available for those who are interested. It also has a good variety of Restaurant/bars that serve lots of great food and drinks at... More
