1. Sunset beach Haad Rin Nai

Haad Rin Nai is the west beach of the Rin Peninsula and is also known as the Sunset Beach. Along with Haad Rin Nok, they are the most famous beaches in Koh Phangan. The beach has white sand and the waters are shallow. If the tide is low the water is very shallow and it is even difficult to swim. The beach is ideal for those looking for a place less noisy than the nearby Haad Rin Nok beach. I give 4/5 to this one because the natural beauty of this beach compared to the (very crowded though) Haad Rin Nok and the quiet Haad Leela is definitely inferior.

2. The ultimate party beach! Haad Rin Nok

Haad Rin is generally the most famous and crowded place on Koh Phangan. Haad Rin Nok is the east beach also known as the Sunrise beach. It is particularly famous for its nightlife. There are many bars and clubs along the beach that have parties from early evening till the morning. The beach has white sand and is always crowded of people sunbathing, playing sand sports, riding jet skis or playing volleyball. It is a great beach if you like parties and meeting people but if you don’t consider going to Haad Rin Nai, the Sunset beach, or even to Haad Leela, which is about 15 minutes walking distance. I give 4/5 just because I think it gets too crowded for me.

3. Haad Leela Haad Leela

Haad Leela (a.k.a Seekantang) is about 15 minutes’ walk from the town center and ideal for relaxing. The beach has both sandy and rocky parts and the turquoise waters are rather shallow. The white sand, the mangrove trees along the coast and the turquoise water comprise the ideal tropical destination. Definitely a beach to visit, especially if you get tired by the parties and the crowds at the nearby Hadd Rin beaches.

4. Just Amazing Playa Bavaro

Playa Bavaro is the most famous beach around Punta Cana. Its fabulous soft white sand and the impressive forest of tall coconut palm trees are considered an attraction of the beach. There is also a coral reef about 200 meters away from the shore that is good for exploring and also breaks the waves and calms the water reaching to the beach. Finally, there are many luxurious hotel resorts in the area for people that want to make this beach the center of their holidays.
