HaadRin is located at Moo4 in Ban Tai sub-district in PhaNgan district, 12 kilometers away from the city municipal. It is one of the most beautiful and popular beaches of PhaNgan Island. The beach is 2 kilometers long divided into two by the earth’s crust calledHaadRinNai and HaadRinNok. Tourists can travel by a long-tailed boat from Thong Sala Town and Ban Kai with fees of 30 baht and 20 per person respectively. It costs approximately 50 baht to travel by car from Thong Sala.
It is told that the HaadRin used to be full of little gnats. People who got in the beach around the evening used to get bitten by them. Nowadays there are not many of gnats; the reasons might be whether the place is too crowded or is filled with parties that they need to escape.
Though HaadRinNai is filled with clear seawater and white sand, it is not suitable for getting in as there are lots of sharp rocks which can be dangerous if you walk on foot. Besides, it would not be so much fun if you have to wear sandals every time you wading in.
HaadRinNok is a little bit far away. Both beaches give you the feeling of being in other countries. There are many resorts around this area. The price is considered high as this area is one of the most popular location for tourists.
The world-famous Full Moon Party takes place on HaadRinNok each month where people come and enjoy dancing.
HaadRinNok during the low season can be really calm and quiet almost similar to other normal beach. There are not many tourists around during the day time; mostly they come back at night. This is why people here relax during the day and wake up at night.
There is plenty to keep you occupied at HaadRinNok whether partying in the Full Moon Party or relaxing and enjoying the beautiful white sands at the beach.
