AO BAN KHAI
Ao Ban Khai starts where the Had Rin hills stop and is part of the long unbroken stretch of beach that runs all the way up to Thong Sala. The beach of Ban Khai bay is quite broad in places and countless coconut palms populate the lowland plains of the area.
AO BAN TAI
Ao Ban Tai is the middle section of the long sunset beach that runs the length of the south-east coast. The village’s primary industry is fishing, thus there is a small marina in the centre of Ban Tai where you can commission boat and fishing trips.
AO HIN LOR
Ao Bangson and Ao Hin-Lor are continuations of Had Rin Nai and are situated below the Had Rin hills. The surrounding landscape is steep and is covered with volcanic boulders that are also dotted along the coast in the sea. The white sand beach is fairly narrow in places, and due to its great length, it is easy to find a private place to sunbathe. The coral reef that lies along the southern facing coast is about 60 metres from the beach, thus in low tidal season (April to November) swimming is not the best.
Had Seekantang, also known as Had Leela, is located on the western tip of the Had Rin peninsula, about 15 minutes walk from the town centre.
HAD RIN NAI
Had Rin Nai (west) is split into two halves by a small rocky foothill, thus the southern section is accessed from the pier side of Had Rin town and the northern section can be reached from the main road at the bottom of the Had Rin hills.
HAD RIN NOK
Had Rin Nok (east) is one of the most beautiful and idyllic beaches on Koh Pha Ngan, it’s broad shoreline gently curves to form a perfect cove flanked by smooth volcanic peninsulas with the sun rising right in the middle of the bay.
HAD WAI NAM
Had Wai Nam is two kilometres south of Had Yow (east) and five kilometres from Had Rin on the mountain path. It is one of three small, white sand beaches that are grouped together on this stretch of the east coast, the others being Had Thian (east) and Had Yuan, about half a kilometre from each other.
HAD YAO (EAST)
Had Yao (east) is tucked behind the rocky headland that is Laem Nokrong. It forms a beautiful white sand cove and is home to just two small friendly bungalow operations.
Had Yuan is two kilometres south of Had Yow (east) and five kilometres from Had Rin on the mountain path. It is one of three small, white sand beaches that are grouped together on this stretch of the east coast, the others being Had Wai Nam and Had Thian (east), about half a kilometre from each other.
