I have been to Haad Rin a few times and I have to say I love the ambience of the bars and the fire shows.

Not Hat Rin. While variations in spelling of some words here e.g. ban and baan are common, hat is not. TripAdvisor is one of the few places you will see it spelt this way. Haad Rin is a young persons town but one that families should visit especially for a day trip from somewhere like Koh Samui. Get the Haad... More

Nice beach when theres no full moon party, if you want to avoid the FMP don't come in the middle of the month! I didnt swim but people were and the water was clean, sand was white, most restaurants and bars clean their section of the beach in the morning. Would reccomend the trip for a nice day on the...

Stay here during the fullmoon party have to said that it's very convenience for you when you need to use the restroom otherwise you have to pay 20 bath. The sand is smooth and clear. A lot of people only the day before fullmoon and the fullmoon night. after that people will disappear like a snap on finger. They have... More

Sunrise is a mystery here! But please, avoid this beach at the Fullmoon night and the day after. These days it looks like a junk of bottles, garbage and drunk people sleeping in the sand after fullmoon party.

We love Thailand and have been to many beautiful places on the mainland and the islands. This area is one we will not return to though as I feel it is aimed at a different market and the full moon parties do not appeal to us. I'm glad we have visited it but it seems very commercialised and decrepit and... More

The sand is fantastic, white and soft. It wasn't too crowded either, which surprised me due to the small-ish size of the beach. Water was not the best I've seen but still quite good. Many will say it's just a party area, but I could see no rubbish or dirt on the sand, so well done to the people who... More
