Full moon beach party, Koh Pha-Ngan
The throbbing, all-night, electronic doof of Koh Pha-Ngan during full moon will either pluck your bass-string spine and sooth your dance-party soul or make your ears bleed in auditory horror. Around each full moon, the beach of Hat Rin is packed with rave bunnies, hippies, yippies, b-boys and other assorted tribes of dance at this most-famous and hedonistic dance party spectacular. So if you’re after a quiet beach holiday be elsewhere. But if you want to stand close to a ship-sinking sound system and shuffle, shimmy and throw your hands in the lasered air with a crowd of like-minded souls, get to Koh Pha-Ngan during full moon and party like it’s 1999.
Or arrive another time, enjoy the island’s wonderful seclusion and beach beauty at Hat Khat and Hat Khom, and relax in this quintessential tropical paradise.
