Hat Rin (Thai: หาดริ้น, pronounced [hàːt rín]) is a peninsular beach area and town on the southern tip of Ko Pha-ngan, an island in the Gulf of Thailand. Its two main beaches are Sunset Beach (Hat Rin Nai) to the south and the larger Sunrise Beach (Hat Rin Nok) to the north. A Full Moon Party takes place on Sunrise Beach each month.
The town and beach first became popular for backpacker tourism since the 1980s. As the popularity of the beach and Full Moon Party have increased, the town has grown to accommodate the new visitors. The town is centred on Chicken Corner, a crossroads and popular meeting spot.

Came to this beach to chill as well as attend the Full moon party. The variety of cages and restaurants available are decent. The vegetarian food, lucky for me was superb. You can have couple of beers and chill by the beach. Go for swim or just dip your legs in. The full moon party happens every month during full moon. There are people from across the globe that come to Koh Phagnan for this event. The number of people can toll up to 15000 so be prepared to be pushed or claustrophobic. The event has different genres of music playing all night and you can buy buckets of alcohol to complement your time at the party.

Nice beach but could be cleaner if the government bans using plastics there!

Really awesome party with different bars playing their own music and you can enter them and dance during the night along the beach. Crowds are not too bad in some parts of beach. You see all kinds of tourists here from drunks to little kids and babies. Some sleeping stations too if u pass out. Pee into the sea if u wish. Careful of broken glass. Appears to be free all night if u stay in the town of the beach. Beach is okay to swim though bit dirty.
