The beach is located at the foot of a large hill and both edges. rests on steep cliffs that do not allow to get to the beach by coast from the neighboring beaches Haad Tian and Haad Yuan.
In the green patch of the jungle near the bay several hidden buildings, and Vaynam itself is a ten-meter lane coarse sand with lots of pebbles. Yellow, very loose, with a mass of impurities in the form of crushed sea shells and fragments of coral.
Usually there are very few people on the beach, but on the days of parties at the Guise Bar and Eden Bar, there will be more people here. And they can be strange.
Entry, depth and waves
The bottom quite briskly goes under the water, causing the sea to Khad Vai We are very comfortable for lovers to hang in the water vertically off the coast. The depth is already ten meters from the band surf, and the water is surprisingly clear due to the fact that the sand large and instantly sits on the bottom without creating a yellowish dregs
Sun beds and shade
There is a shadow, but there are no sun beds. On a hundred meters beach there are several huge trees with wide crowns, therefore Shadow deficit on Vai Nam is not. You have to be well before noon roasting (east side), and from 12 o’clock the shadow begins to creep to the beach. People usually bring their belongings to the beach. rest, and as a rule – all come light.

The beach was chosen by strange people, by the way.
The infrastructure on Wai Nam is one bar and several bungalows, scattered in the depths of green. Stores, some walking streets and there are no markets here and not there. All sights are located far, given the isolation of the beach and the total underdevelopment of land routes.
Of the sights – Guise Bar on the nearby Haad beach Tien, reachable on foot in a few minutes. But more often the opposite is happening, people come to a party in the gays bar and on the next day, in the morning and afternoon, some of them flow to wai nam, where you can and buy and continue the party (auto-party).
Houses and hotels on the beach
The houses belong to the resort, the name of which I do not remember and outwardly look a little more than simple. Wooden single-layer walls, windows with shutters, brick extensions of bathrooms and septic tanks, leaving directly to the bay. In the depths of the island there is already a little home bigger and more serious, but this “little” is almost not noticeable.

AT the same Asia, for example, there are lots of offers on Agoda.com, which much more interesting than on exactly the same hotels in Booking.com.
How to find the beach
There are only two options: drive a scooter through the jungle and add yourself a medal for nerves of steel, or afford profligacy, and hire a boatman, as most do tourists on Phangan. Land route, I will not tell you, because this is a matter of experience for people, and with the local roads, this there will be a trip not for wimps.
Much simpler and healthier will give 300 baht for boatman, swim unharmed and chat on the beach with camera in whole hands.
