Had Rin Nai beach - convenient for life, but not for swimming

Phangan has two Haad Rin beaches. Little Haad Rin Nok is the beach where Full Moon Party is held every month. I already wrote about all this here. And the big beach is Haad Rin Nai, which, unlike its tuzovochny namesake, is much calmer and far from cupy.

Almost half the right side of Haad Rin Nyelocated under the steep slopes of the mountain, the beach is often interrupted by stone placers, or simply divided by rocks into small mini-beaches. And the center and the left half is inhabited well and even has its own pier with an artificially created harbor.

Beach description

The exact length of Haad Rin Nay I will not name somethingabout one and a half kilometers. The fact is that on the right he somehow imperceptibly enters Ao Hin Lo beach, and to say where exactly, I could not even Thais, so the separation is very conditional. Ao Hin Lo then goes to Ban Tai, but we still get to him.

Haad Rin Nye facing to the southwest and from hima magnificent view of Samui and the sunset sky. By the way, both Had Rina are sometimes distinguished in conversation: Hadrin Sunset Beach and Hadrin Sunrise Beach, that is, sunset and sunrise Hadrin.

The width of the beach and even the composition of the sand on Haad Rin Nayalso different from Haad Rin Nok, because the geographical position of both beaches on either side of the cape in this part of the island affects. The beach here is so narrow that in some areas, the tide almost completely hides all the sand.

The owners of the nearby resorts were evenforced to strengthen the embankment from blurring, creating low stone and cement walls. At the same time, in such an architectural way, the private territory of the resort is delicately separated from the public beach.

This beach is worth considering, above all,in order to rent a house during the Full Moon Party. To the whole party will be very close, but the prices are lower. On the other days, it also seemed to me that prices are lower here.

Sunset, depth and waves

The sand on Haad Rin Nae is dark yellow, large, witha large number of coral debris and stones. The bottom is rocky almost the entire length of Haad Rin Nye, near some resorts in some places cleared. The shore goes under the water not under a steep slope, that is, it remains quite shallow even at high tide. The depth of the shoulders comes about 10 meters from the shore. Waves, as a rule, occur only with a strong wind.

Sun beds and shade

As I wrote above - the narrowness of the beach does not allowfully use it for a beach holiday. Sun beds are all in the territory of their resort, well, the main shadow is in the same place. Occasionally on the beach there are varieties of mangrove trees, on which you can sometimes find hanging hammocks. I shot in the central part of Haad Rin Naya and then moved to the left, closer to the pier and Haad Liil.

On the right side of the beach, I decided not to meddle, becausethat there it is quite difficult to overcome the rocky capes bypassing the sea, and to go around the top is not less tiresome. But visually, even in the pictures you can see that the normal amount of green is growing there, which, along with the rocks, gives a good natural shadow.

Infrastructure

This part of Phangan is relatively flat.surface between the mountains on the main part of the island, and a lonely hill on its southernmost point. So, the entire infrastructure of both Haad Rinov is actually located on this flat patch. Little Had Rin is the center of the hangout for all of Phangan, and I would say that the infrastructure in this area is probably the third most developed, after Tong Sala and Chaloclama.

I will not list all the buildings present,I will say in general: there is everything you need to relax or longstey, from massage to shops, have your own 7-Eleven. Haad Rin Nay rests on the plain with his left edge, starting from the center of the beach. There is also a pier. And the right side of the beach, from the center - these are mainly resorts and detached villas.

Of the attractions on Haad Rin Nae - there is a good water park Koh Phangan Water World.

Houses and hotels on the beach

Very large, I must say, the choice of housing fora beach of this size and geography. The center and the left side of the beach are occupied by resorts with a solid wall, except for the area around the pier. And the right half of the beach, after the water park, is a steep mountainside, on which it is rather difficult to build, but still there are several places worthy of attention.

  • Blue hill beach resort
  • Phangan Pearl Villa
  • Sunset Beach Club Hotel
  • The Coast Resort Koh Phangan
  • Buri Beach Resort
  • Sea Breeze Resort

Or stylized Angkor Wat hotel Le Palais. By the way, I walked around the territory of the Sunset Beach Club Hotel, I personally liked everything visually, and the rating is also good.

And here is another selection of the most sensible guesthouses and resorts with average prices and a quite good rating, to help potential fullers. Options for 1-3 nights where you can throw a backpack on Khadrin:

  • Black & white bungalows
  • Starlight Haadrin Resort
  • Coral bungalows
  • Mr. Black resort

How to find the beach

Finding Haad Rin Nay is as easy as Haad Rin.Nok Take the main road to the corner 7-Eleven, which is indicated on the map below, and then turn right. But in principle, starting from the moment you drive through Le Palais, any turn from the main road to the right will lead you to the sea, you just have to leave the bike in the parking lot of the resort and walk to the beach on foot.

For example, I passed without problems through the territory of the resort Charung Bungalows

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

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.
