beaches of haad rin

Since the beaches were a big reason we headed to the islands, we spent a lot of time hanging out around them. There were two major beaches in Haad Rin. The one where the Full Moon Party was which was called Haad Rin Nok. We would take our morning swims on this beach because it was the only beach that had a roped off part where it seems much safer to swim then having to deal with all the boat taxis that zoom around. It was only about a 10 minute walk from our place, even though we were on the other side of town so we are and worked there a few times.

The other beach was called Haad Rin Nai and was very close to where we stayed. It wasn't as pristine of a beach but it was much less crowded and was a good place to escape from the craziness of the other side of town. We ate many breakfasts at the Coral Bungalows that overlooked the beach and was one of the better restaurants around as well as the cheapest.
