Summary of the Beach Inspectors
Haad Yao East Beach is most certainly one of the most remote beaches of Koh Phangan and because of this it is well worth going to. The journey by boat and the walk through the jungle to the beach are a real adventure and you will definitely have an exciting story to tell after you have been to the beach. The small bay looks very picturesque with its huge palm-trees, white sand and impressive smooth rocks which enclose the beach. Some party-lovers will know the beach because of the extremely lively techno party which takes place every month in the Lost Paradise

Haad Yao East Beach - The secret beach with a secret techno party

There are many beaches on Koh Phangan which you can easily reach by scooter. However, there are some special beaches on this dream island which are extremely difficult to get to, but if you are rewarded with a secret, super-cool techno party, then the effort is presumably well worth it.

Haad Yao East is a tiny bay on the east coast which most people come to by boat from Haad Rin. If you are staying at one of the neighbouring beaches you can also walk through the jungle to the beach. However, this is a very demanding and exhausting hike and you should only attempt it if you are fit enough. You have to head across country and through thick undergrowth to reach this small dream bay.

The bay of Haad Yao East is only 400 metres long and looks like a typical Thai beach, in other words, just beautiful. The beach is surrounded by impressive smooth rocks and the water is wonderfully clear and refreshing. From October to March there are waves most of the time, but otherwise the sea is very shallow and ideal for snorkelling. The huge palm-trees and the white sand provide the breath-taking beautiful setting for this secret, idyllic beach.

As it is very remote, only a few holidaymakers make their way to Haad Yao East and normally you will not see anybody here and there is also only one bungalow site. Once a month a really cool techno party takes place which definitely attracts the most outrageous party animals of Koh Phangan and partying and dancing to cool beats carries on all night.
