Nice beach but property along the beach is very tired and unattractive. Shows the signs of the full moon parties.

Fantastic night of partying on the beach at Hat Rin on Koh Pha Ngan Island. Book your accomodation early - unless you want to party till the morning ferry back to Koh.

In April 2007 I had to witness the bar staff of the Drop-In-Bar at Haad Rin Nok beach murder a british guy and the night after this a person from Israel. After the israelian person's death the military from Surat Thani closed the Bar for one night. The night after that they were able to open again at Full Moon... More

I've been to Koh Phangan 5 times and it is a beautiful island with - safaris, elephants, waterfalls, temples, yoga etc etc. I can't say I didn't enjoy the parties, I've been to many of them. However you can tolerate and even enjoy a party there at night - by day it is hell on earth. Rude, drunk and obnoxious... More

Absolutely awful. Unless you are in your twenties and are looking for nothing but a pit to party in avoid this island. Shame as it was, I suppose once a nice place now dirty tackly and makes blackpool look lovely. We left after one day.

All the bookings say that you must book early and stay a minimum if 5 days over the full moon. As such I came 5 days before as I also heard their would be parties leading up to it. I spent the money to stay in Haad Rin and so far it is one of the worst places I have... More

Was für ein traumhafter Strand! Wir waren außerhalb der Fullmoonparty, hier was wir auch keine Sekunde bereut haben! Abends ist am Strand auch so was los, nur eben ohne Drogen. Um wirklich gut zu essen gibt es hier nicht viel! Außer die Palita Lodge, die Preise sind nicht zu teuer und die Qualität ist super! What a fantastic beach! We... More
