Haad Yuan is one of the three beaches-neighbors that are located in still a wild corner of Pangan. Until this half of the island is not yet Got mass buildings and road services, so buildings there is little, and by land it is very difficult to get here.
However, those who were not afraid to shake on the bumps and those who I thought of hiring a taxi-boat, on arrival I get a bonus in the form of “wild island” with poorly populated beaches, minimal infrastructure and charming coves overlooking the dawn sky. the main thing the advantage of this beach is isolation from the main Pangan dvizhuhi, but here life after sunset does not freeze.

Haad Yuan is chosen by people who have nothing in their plans for vacation, besides meditation, relaxing on the beach and sealer with a cocktail on little table. By sea here to get a little expensive (about 300 baht in one side) if every day, and land – is dangerous. Therefore, coming to Haad Yuan once, you better stay here until you depart.
Unless, of course, this is not a one-day trip for 1 day. For example, on This beach hosts house parties at Eden Bar, and some Come one day, hang out and swim.
A secluded cove on the east coast, hides deep between rocky headlands Ta To and Klang about 300 meters of sand. Width The beach varies from 10 meters on the right half to 60 meters on left.
The sand is medium grain when it dries out it becomes almost white, although during the rainy season you can meet on the shore every morning a lot of trash. Near the foot of Cape Klong there is a seasonal bed stinky river that eats up a decent piece during the showers the beach.
Entry, depth and waves
The coast on Haad Yuan is very flat, so for almost the entire length, opposite the territory of the resorts, the beach is reinforced with concrete fences with facing. The entrance to the water is calm, without sudden drops and stone debris. The sand does not fall under your feet, it is quite dense and lightly tints the water in the surf.
Depth comes gradually, shallow water is maintained up to 80 meters from the coast, so that the tides here decide. In the tide from the beach is 5-10 meters, depending on which flank you turned out – the width of Haad Yuan is uneven, a triangle.
Sun beds and shade
There are a lot of sunbeds here. There is no beach access, so there is no There are rolling offices, and all the lounge chairs belong Resorts, there they are installed. Staff monitors the change tides, so the sun beds are not only behind the fences in private territory, but they are also exposed to public beach.
Bars where you can order a cocktail-use permission sun loungers are nearby. The shade is mainly from the trees, and trees grow in private areas and there is no sense from them until noon – the sun does not allow. But in the afternoon the shadows lengthen, and to two or three o’clock in the afternoon cover the entire beach.
The whole beach will show only from this side, taking off in the direction of travel. The water is amazingly clear.

Actually – Haad Yuan
Infrastructure Haad Yuan is a little better than on neighboring beaches Haad Tien and Vai Nam, but just as scant.
All three beaches are located in the lowlands, at the foot of the ridge of hills, which fences off this location from civilization. People here do not come for shopping and aqua parks, but purposefully run off from the rest of humanity.
Or, as I said, they come to hang out one day at the Eden Bar, and the neighboring Guise Bar. Parties go one after another, especially persistent come for 2-3 days.
The entire infrastructure, if you can call it that, is reduced to services that provide resorts and single establishments on Beach – restaurants, bars, a yoga center and cafes. The most famous restaurant on Haad Yuan, this is Bambu Hut, located on the rocks. There are no large stores and even network mini-markets here, rentals – in resorts, tours in resorts, massages in the same place.

Houses and hotels on the beach
Comfortable flat (more expensive) part of the coast is occupied by quite serious hotels that have a full range on their territory guest services. However, those people who are forced to control their budget is tighter, Haad Yuan also has enough houses – they built along the sea, right on the rocks.
They have access to a lot of bungalows of different quality and price category, who nestled along the edges of the beach. You can go to them by wooden walkways that surround both capes on Haad Yuan.

How to find the beach
If you start from Tong Saly overland on your own, then you should go on the navigator on an SUV or scooter, car there will not pass. Explain the route on the fingers does not see the point and I strongly recommend to thoroughly study the Google Map on the Internet, don’t count on free tourist cards that print for the sake of advertising.
Drive along the southern bank of Phangan towards Haad Rin, Collapse onto the secondary road on the left (the marker is set to map below, use to scale + or -) and – good luck you.
But my advice to you is not to go overland, this is the way for the desperate and brave, I traveled know. I will not go again. I don’t want to lose 1.5-2 hours altogether. While on a boat from Haad Rin you will get to comfort and in just 15 minutes, giving 300 baht.
