Many think the island is just another destination for backpackers or partyfreaks mainly visiting the island because of the Fullmoon Party at Had Rinbeach. But Phanganis a large island and Had Rinis only a tiny and isolated part of Koh Phangan.
Kohphangan's weather is during all seasons beautiful. Clear days and a steady ocean breeze are the norm. The best time for a visit, late December to late of March is the ideal holiday island experience.
Located around 18 km from the northern side of Samuiin the Gulf of Thailandis the island of Koh Phangan. The Island is much quieter and relaxed than Samui, with the exception of the FullMoon beachparty that attracts every month between 5 - 10,000 visitors come on the island for the over crowded full moon in Haad Rin Nok.
You can use the roads to HadRin, but you have been warned that the concrete roads are not in the best condition and only if you are a confident motorbike rider then don't attempt to get to HaadRin, as most accidents involving scooters happen in this area. Our advice is to leave your motorcylce at the 7-11 at BaanTai and pay about 40 Baht for a pick up over the hills to HadRin.
