Haad Yuan is a quiet, relaxing beach on Koh Phangan’s east coast. Despite only being a short distance from party capital Haad Rin, Haad Yuan has a chilled out vibe and is one of the island’s best beaches for relaxing day trips and holidays.

Accessible by boat from Haad Rin or by a challenging mountain trail, Haad Yuan is one of Koh Phangan’s least developed major beaches. There are just a few resorts on the beach, including the upmarket Pariya Resort & Villas and a selection of cheaper bungalow resorts.
With deep water and reasonably good visibility, Haad Yuan is one of the best beaches on the eastern coast of Koh Phangan for swimming. The beach is a popular day trip destination from nearby Haad Rin, with visitors arriving and departing fairly frequently by longtail boat.
Dining and drinking options on Haad Yuan are limited, although the beach has a good selection of beach bars and restaurants serving Thai and Western cuisine. There are occasional parties held by Guy’s Bar and Eden Garden hosted by local DJs during the high season.
If you’re searching for a chilled out, peaceful place to stay on Koh Phangan, Haad Yuan is an excellent choice. This unique beach offers a nice mix of the tranquility of Koh Phangan’s north coast beaches with a bohemian atmosphere that’s now becoming hard to find on Haad Rin.
