Haad Rin Nightlife

What to Do at Night in Haad Rin (Sunset & Sunrise)

It’s not all about the full moon parties at Haad Rin. The area is what a jaded travel writer would call ‘vibrant’ and is easily the best place in this part of Thailand for an extended evening out, taking in a good meal, bar-hopping and dancing till late.

If you’re looking for a wild night out then head down the small sois leading to the beach and wander around until you find a hopping place – the later the better. Central Haad Rin is quieter in terms of volume but is still a busy place to be.

Fronting Sunrise (Nok) beach with an entrance in the soi leading down to the beach, Cactus has an impressive entrance with a pretty bare interior and upstairs. But it’s not designed to please aesthetes; it’s a party bar and on Full Moon nights you’ll get a thumping earful here as you slosh through your buckets. Spilling out onto the beach, you can choose to dance inside or out on the sand or on the terrace. Cactus is one of the Big Players in the Haad Rin party scene.

Infinity Beach Club

Infinity Beach Club Hostel is one of those places where the party never seems to end.

It features three bars, two restaurants, a rooftop terrace and a giant swimming pool. The food served in the restaurants ranges from fresh seafood to Asian and western fusion cuisine. Get there for the happy hour between 17:00 and 18:00 for great discounts on sundowners. DJs rock the Infinity Beach Club from sunset until 01:00.

Merkaba Beach Club

Located on a private beach at the entrance of Haad Rin, right next to Blue Hill Resort, Merkaba is a modern beach club offering a great place to chill out and party both inside and outside. You’ll find a DJ booth shaped like the head of a tiger, a swimming pool, a comfortable lounge area, a patch of sand on which you can relax between dancing sessions, and what is considered the best sound system on the island. Top local and international DJs perform here, the management is professional and friendly and drink prices are affordable.

The main feature that distinguishes Outback from its competitors is its façade, made up of vines and lush greenery. Oz-themed, you can get an ice-cold brew and food here from midday onwards and the Outback offers a less frenetic vibe than the noisy beach bars.

  • Opening Hours: Daily from 10am to 11pm
  • Location: Ban Tai, Koh Phangan, Surat Thani 84280, Thailand

Sandcastle Club

Sandcastle Club is another popular venue for partiers. Located right on Haad Rin Beach East, it features plenty of indoor and outdoor space to dance and relax. Each day seems to be a new event at Sandcastle Club, which works with local and international DJs mostly specialised in Deep House and Techno music. Dining in the lounge area is very pleasant, and the long list of cocktails available at fair rates will certainly allow you to quench your thirst in style.

  • Opening Hours: Daily from 6pm until late
  • Location: 94/62 Moo 6, Haad Rin Beach Road, Ban Tai, Koh Phangan 84280, Thailand

Tommy Bar

Part of the next-door Tommy Resort, Tommy Bar is a boat-themed affair. Upstairs offers dining under the stars while downstairs is a chilled-out scene, ideal for cocktails while people watching. None of this applies, however, on Full Moon nights when all the jams are kicked out and musical mayhem ensues.

  • Opening Hours: Daily from 10am until late
  • Location: 90/13 Moo 6, Haad Rin, Koh Phangan, Surat Thani 84280, Thailand
  • Tel: +66 (0)77 375 215
