The only advantage to staying here was the incredible view from my cliff side balcony. The room was dark, tiny and pretty grim and the fan was useless. I Paid on check in for 5 nights with another staff member and later on when I met the manageress rather than getting a welcoming hello I was quizzed as to why... More

The Ocean Rock Resort at Haad Yuan was suppose to be one of the highlights of my trip - it wasn't. The natural beauty of the setting on the rocks and the chill layed-back experience I had two years ago on my first visit have been replaced by new management that left me feeling sour. The resort it self was... More

Best part of my trip was the hike to this beach from Haad Rin. After a 1hr hike though the trails from Haad Rin beach to Haad Yuan beach there are long tail boats you can take back over to Haad Rin for couple hundred tbh. But before you leave, be sure to check out Garden of Eden for a... More

Haad Yuan..... This was my 2nd time here in 7 years. A lot has changed in that time and a lot has stayed the same. We did not have a hotel reservation When we arrived so we crossed our fingers and hoped for the best. Our first choice was Big Blue (which is where I'd recommend) but they were booked... More

Definitely reminded me of a traditional hippy commune. The smell of ganja is everywhere and don't be surprised to see people stoned out of their minds. Alot of strange places along this beach, but none of the less we still had a great time. A very unique and scenic spot. Very special! Also- woman tend to go topless here and... More

As everyone that has been to this side of Koh P knows, this beach is something special! The high mountains covered in lush jungle trees in the background, the huge rocks on the sides of it and the taxi boats coming in from around the corner as the only disturbance. The relaxed vibe on the resorts on the beach and... More

We stayed at Ocean rock for a week and it was fantastic. Exactly what we needed after all the crap we went through travelling the south of Vietnam (don't go). Our bungalow was basic but sufficient with a great view. We ate mostly at bamboo hut which was fantastic, but a few times at ocean rock which was also good.... More

Absoluty breath taking scenes, easy to access from boat taxi, met lots of friendly people here. Gorgeous looking back from the sea at sunset, it's a must,!

I just spent 1 week on Haad Yuan. Its a great beach for people looking for a nice relaxed vibe but with a few choices of restaurants and things to keep them occupied. The great thing about this beach is that you can only reach it by longtail from haad rin which keeps it quiet, but at the same time... More
