|Koh Phangan is a
unique and very special Island in the Gulf of Thailand, it is
sheltered from heavy weather and maintains one of the best
climates in the region. The Full Moon Party has bought the
Island global notoriety and it's a fantastic place to party,
Phangan also has many other sides to amaze its visitors. The
Full Moon is far more than a party ; it is Had Rin's dance
music festival, with everything from drum ans bass to full-on
psy-trance. This wide, sandy beach in the beach in the south
of Pha Ngan is one of the most beautiful ones. Had Rin is
actually comprised of two popular beaches, Rin Nai Beach on west
side of the peninsula and Rin Nok on the east side.
From Rin Nai beach you can see Koh Samui very cleary. This is also a
great place to catch the sunset. On the beach os Rin Nok is
Bang Rak pier where the ferryboats from koh south Samui arrive and
leave daily. Rin Nok beach is well known among Thai as well as the
foreigner tourist for its " Full Moon Party " . This spot is ranked
as the third most beautiful spot in the world to view the full moon.
For this reason on every full moon night a great number of tourists
from all over the world flock here to take part in the famous
celebration, stores and restaurants available on the island. Had Rin
is located on the southeastern tip of the island, 12 kilometers
south from the district Office in Ban Thong Sala or take a ferry
directly from Koh Samui to get there.
Where to Stay for The Full Moon Party
Most party goers choose to stay in Haadrin, which is where the full
moon party takes place. There are lots of small hotels, resorts and
guest houses in Haadrin - but most do not take online bookings or
are not of a very high quality. We find that it is often a better
solution to stay in either Bankai or Bantai Beaches, where there are
lots of resorts of a very high quality. All will offer
transportation to and from the party itself and/or taxis are readily
available during the party night. Besides, we are talking only about
5-10 minutes of transportation.
Minimum Stays and
You can be absolutely certain that most of the hotels in or near
Haadrin Beach will have a minimum stay of 3 nights - most actually
up to 5 or even 7 nights. As a rule of thumb, the further you move
away from the party area the shorter a stay you can get away with.

Full Moon Party Venues
The Rock Full Moon Party Venue
The Rock is one of the best places on the beach to chill out
and get view of the whole party. It is situated at the
southern end of Haad Rin on (you guessed it) a big rock.
Expect soulful funky tunes mixed by DJ Kim and the best
cocktails on the beach.
Cactus Bar Full Moon Party Venue
The Cactus is one of the first places you come to as you
enter Haad Rin Beach, Its right in the middle so it gets a
load of punters, especially as the sun comes up. Expect a
more commercial sound with RnB, hip hop, old skool classics
and even the odd bit of rock.
Paradise Bungalows Full Moon Party Venue
The home of the Original Full Moon Party, Paradise is still
the biggest and best venue consistently putting on the
largest show. If a big name is visiting the island, you will
normally find them here playing alongside the amazing
resident DJ A who has more or less coined the tough
progressive sound of Haad Rin.
Vinyl Club Full Moon Party Venue
DJ Dam at the Vinyl Club bangs out full psy-trance and
driving techno to one of the biggest crowds on the beach. It
has a monster sound system, loads of podiums to shake yer
booty on and more than its fair share of hardcore space
Drop In Club
Drop In is another long runner that has been playing a more
commercial set to the huge crowd that gathers there. It has loads of
different places to chill out and watch the action; playing chart,
RnB, hip hop and dancefloor classics.
Warm up the evening with some live music at Same-Same Lodge; the
band play covers from Rock to Pop on a pro sound system to keep the
crowds coming back for more.
Sunrise Beach Club
Live DJs start playing 5 days before Full Moon, serving up Funky and
Electro House, which alternates with a D&B, Jungle theme by the
Orchid Club, Living Tribe DJ team.
If you want to escape the pandemonium and hear some deep and funky
house, head to the Outback near the main pier with its no trance
music policy. Check out the stunning decor, a brilliantly stocked
bar and an excellent menu make this a popular choice.
Eagle Bar Presents and Ibiza Style Sunset
There's a brand new look to the previous graffiti style that the
Eagle Bar became known for. Now looking sophisticated and classy,
this rather lush bar is situated right at the left end of the bay as
you view the sea, on arguably the best sunset beach on Koh Phanagan.
And that's the reason why starting Sunday Dec 21st sees the launch
of fab new late afternoon/evening party replicating the vibe you
would find at Mambo/Cafe Del Mar in San Antonio, Ibiza. Chilled
beats and the Del Mar sunset style leading into groovy house as you
say goodbye to the day and welcome the night. Weekly resident is
former top Kiss 100 DJ (8 years in DJ Mag's influential Top 100)
Graham Gold, now a KP resident also! The part starts at 4pm and
continues till late!
New Years Eve December 31st Not everyone wants the total madness of
Haad Rin and the psy trance that goes with it, and to save you the
journey from the north west of the island all the way to the south,
the Eagle Bar is putting on yet again another great NYE party!! With
Graham Gold and the boys from Phunkd whipping up the crowd, complete
with body painters and fireshows, this a superb option to Haad Rin.
Totally free of course, the party starts at 8pm and goes till
Black Moon Party
The Black Moon Party
happens approximately 15 days before (or after) the full moon. It
takes place on Bantai beach, at Mac's Bay resort, just few meters
after the 7-Eleven. Unlike the full moon party, there is here only
one sound (mega sound suits better, as we have here at least 10
kilowatts) and Djs follow each other all night long playing their
own tunes on the deck. Don't expect a Free-Party, as most of the
parties, apart from the full moon, have now an entry fee. But don't
worry as it's still affordable to all, as only 300 baht will be
asked, and it includes a drink. The music here is barely exclusively
Techno Trance, for the pleasure of the crowd there, which loves it
And the atmosphere follows with a totally trippy scenery design,
100% psychedelic, with fluo paintings and cotton weavings arranged
everywhere on the ground and in the trees and glowing with the black
lights. A very good party, especially during the high season, when
high quality international Djs are invited to play. It's a favorite
among ravers, as it's still on the beach, but much closer to
free-parties than the Full Moon Party.
