Nice beach in the day :)

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... read more

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

This is a typical beautiful tropical island, not too big to be too crowded not too small to be boring.... Haad Rin is a small village in great location of this island that was a simple Asian village that became a nice touristic place full of little shops and many restaurants . Squeezed between two coasts and beaches this where... More

The beach is average. Not the best swimming beach and isnt the most beautiful. The bars and restaurants and rubbish lying around is expected with it being a party location. So if you're up for drinks and a full moon party it's great. Otherwise quite dirty and trashy

What an adventure Haad Rin can offer. Lots of local and foreign restaurants available. Good street vendors to buy local merchandise. Many low cost hostels and hotels available. Good nightlife and many water related adventures and land tours available.

The beach is quite a nice beach. It was really windy when we were there and the waves were huge, so you couldn't go for a relaxing swim or anything. There are a few cool bars there. Especially at night! The highlight is Mushroom Mountain. (Mellow Mountain Bar!) Shakes are 500 baht each and the strongest we've had. Great day... More

So after a disappointing visit to the beach where 2 currents meet, we finally discovered this gem. It was one day before the Full Moon party where we were going anyway, so we went there just to locate it and check it out. We were surprised by the beauty of it and the clear water that we decided to spend... More
