Its a nice beach for sunsets, but terrible to swim at. And the music around can destroy your sleep at night. Even late night.

Stayed in a hotel along this beach for 4 nights, not the best of beaches and real swimming is a no no. Also found it a bit noisy at night times, views are nice though.

If you don't like crowded Haad Rin after a Full Moon, just go there after 6 o'clock and you will have a nice happy ending of your partied night!!
