“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

If you are looking for full on bucket parties or water sports this is not the place for you. It's pretty quiet but absolutely beautiful. The water is clear & the beach is clean. To get to it from the bays either side you'll need to cross a rickety bridge made of logs but it seemed pretty secure. Well worth a visit if you want to chill out.

“best beach in Thailand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

Had the most amazing time in Haad Yaun, Was recommended by a friend and he was 100% spot on. its truly amazing, a must see when your there.

The nicest people on the beach visit Good Hope Bungalows (they have wild monkeys in there beautiful jungle gardens and the owner Dam is sucha nice bloke. Ocean rocks really good to, get your taxi boats from them, they dont rip you off. Big blue has wikid food and movies every night on a projector screen.

15 out of 10

“Paradise!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

I stayed a Barcelona Resort on this little beach, and while it was definitely not a 5 star hotel, it had the most amazing view!! It was only a 5-10 min longtail boat ride to Had Rin where the full moon party and all the tourists are. The beach is absolutely beautiful crystal clear water and white soft sand! The thai food in the restaurant at Barcelona Resort was very good and cheap. The restaurant called Bamboo on Haad Yuan is my favorite restaurant in all of thailand. Amazing view!! If you get there early, you get to sit in the gazebo on the rocks! Also Eden is a really cool bar on the beach and you will find all sorts of laid back chill people there. Haad Yuan is definitely underrated, but I guess that is what makes it so beautiful! Please visit if you have the chance.
