Haad Yuan Beach - a great beach in solitude and Eden Bar

Haad Yuan is one of the three beaches-neighbors,who are in the yet wild corner of Pangan. This half of the island has not yet reached mass buildings and road services, so there are few buildings here, and it is very difficult to get here by land.

However, those who were not afraid to shake onbumps and those who thought to hire a taxi-boat receive a bonus in the form of a “wild island” with poorly populated beaches, minimal infrastructure and charming bays overlooking the dawn sky. The main advantage of this beach is its isolation from the main Pangan engine, but life after sunset does not stop here.

Beach description

Haad Yuan is chosen by people who have no plans forvacation is nothing but meditation, relaxing on the beach and sealed with a cocktail on the table. By sea, getting here is a little expensive (about 300 baht one way) if it is every day, and land is dangerous. Therefore, having come to Haad Yuan once, you better stay here until you depart.

Unless, of course, this is not a one-day trip for 1 day. For example, on this beach are house-parties in the bar Eden, and some come one afternoon to hang out and swim.

A secluded bay on the east coast hides about 300 meters of sand deep between the rocky headlands of Ta To and Klang. The width of the beach varies from 10 meters on the right half to 60 meters on the left.

The sand is medium grain when it dries outit becomes almost white, although during the rainy season you can find a lot of garbage on the shore every morning. Near the foot of Cape Klong there is a bed of a seasonal stinky river that eats up a decent piece of beach during the showers.

Sunset, depth and waves

Haad Yuan Beach is very flat, so almostalong the entire length, opposite the resort area, the beach is reinforced with concrete fences with facing. The entrance to the water is calm, without sudden drops and stone fragments. The sand does not fall under your feet, is quite dense and slightly tints the water in the surf.

Depth comes gradually, shallow watersaved up to 80 meters from the coast, so that the tides here decide. In the tide from the beach there are 5-10 meters left, depending on which flank you were on - the width of Haad Yuan is uneven, triangle.

Sun beds and shade

There are a lot of sunbeds here. There is no beach access, so there are no rental offices here, and all the lounge chairs belong to resorts, they are also installed there. The staff monitors the change in tides, so the sun beds are not only behind the fences on the private territory, but they are also exposed to the public beach.

Bars where you can order a cocktail permitThe use of a deck chair is nearby. The shade is mainly from the trees, and the trees grow in private areas and there is no sense from them before noon - the sun does not allow. But in the afternoon the shadows lengthen, and by two or three o'clock in the afternoon they cover the whole beach.

Infrastructure

Infrastructure Haad Yuan is slightly better than on neighboring beaches Haad Tien and Wai Nambut just as scant.

All three beaches are located in the valley at the foot.ridge of hills, which separates this location from civilization. People come here not for shopping and aqua-parks, but deliberately escape from the rest of humanity.

Or, as I said, they come to hang out one afternoon in bar edenand neighboring Gays bar. Parties go one after another, especially resistant come for 2-3 days.

All infrastructure, if you can call it that,reduced to services that provide resorts and individual establishments on the shore - restaurants, bars, a yoga center and cafes. The most famous restaurant on Haad Yuan is Bambu Hut, located on the rocks. There are no large stores and even network mini-markets here, rentals - in resorts, tours - in resorts, massages - in the same place.

Houses and hotels on the beach

Comfortable flat (more expensive) part of the coastoccupy quite serious hotels, which have on their territory a full range of services for guests. However, those people who are forced to control their budget more tightly, Haad Yuan, too, have enough houses - they are built along the sea, right on the rocks.

They have access to a lot of bungalows of different quality and price category, which nestled along the edges of the beach. You can walk to them by wooden walkways that surround both capes on Haad Yuan.

In Asia, for example, there are lots of offers on Agoda.com that are much more interesting than on exactly the same hotels on Booking.com.

How to find the beach

If you start from Tong Saly overlandcourse, then you should go on the navigator on an SUV or scooter, the car will not pass there. I do not see the point in explaining the route on my fingers and I strongly recommend that you carefully study the Google Map on the Internet, do not count on free tourist cards that are printed for the sake of advertising.

Drive along the southern bank of Phangan towards Haad Rin, turn onto the secondary road on the left (the marker is placed on the map below, use + or - for scaling) and - good luck to you.

But my advice to you is not to go overland, this is the way todesperate and courageous, I traveled. I will not go anymore. And I do not want to lose 1.5-2 hours at all. While on a boat from Haad Rin you will get in comfort and in just 15 minutes, giving away 300 baht.

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
