Fodor's Expert Review Haad Rin
If you are looking for the party, then head to Haad Rin. The beach is divided into two parts, Haad Rin West and Haad Rin East, each with its own personality. Haad Rin West has swimmable water, but you needn't settle for this beach when Haad Rin East is only a short walk away. Beautiful Haad Rin East is lined with bungalows and bars, although the water isn't nearly as pristine as at the more remote beaches. Every four weeks, Haad Rin East gets seriously crowded when throngs of young people gather on the beach for an all-night Full Moon Party. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: partiers; swimming.
