Partying in Haad Yao

Haad Yao is not a year round party destination like Haad Rin and Bantai. Many people stay in Haad Yao because it is a gorgeous beach with a more hassle-free atmosphere than Haad Rin. However, they all make the trip down to Haad Rin for the infamous FMP. In the high seasons (July to September & December / Jan) some of the bars in Haad Yao throw parties that are well attended and that see people losing themselves in the music.

Drinking in Haad Yao

Rasta Home

Rasta Home is on the road to Haad Salad. You can walk there from Haad Yao beach no problem. Rasta Home is a small bar made from wood and bamboo. As you would imagine it is the home of the rasta on the beach. You will be treated to dreadlock Thais playing live reggae, feeling the spirit of Jah. Occasionally Koh Phangan's famous reggae band 'Job to Do' plays at this venue. They are well worth a listen.

Long Bay Resort

Long Bay Resort has seating on the beach at the northern end. It has basic tables and plastic chairs but it is a nice spot for a drink or cocktail early evening. As you can see from the picture opposite the sunset view from Haad Yao beach can be spectacular. Long Bay Resort also does good food.

Haad Yao Resort

Haad Yao Resort might not be your first choice as a place to stay (see review) but it has a cool bar on the beach made from wood and lit up in colored lights in the evening. The bartender is friendly and can make a range of drinks. If you are doing a bar crawl this is a good one to include in your itinerary.

Chok Dee

If you like a drink you will soon discover that 'chok dee' means 'cheers' in Thai. This is a great bar on the center of the beach. They have a large bar area with seating on the beach. They serve beers, spirits, cocktails and of course buckets. They also have DJ music on party nights.

Apache Bar

Apache Bar is on the main road. It is a small bar and restaurant with a bar area, an indoor seating area as well as a few tables and chairs outside. It is a relaxed place popular with ex-pats. The owner is local who speaks good English.

Behind the bar there is Sunset Bungalow. It is a row of comfortable bungalows for rent.

Apple Bar

Near to Apache Bar is Apple Bar. It is a small wooden bar with a friendly atmosphere. They have a party on Sunday nights featuring DJs playing house and funk music. Apple Bar is open from 8pm until late.

Jack's Bar

Jack's Bar is the largest bar in Haad Yao. It covers a large grassy area between the main road and the beach. It has a bar area, a garden area and salas on the beach. They serve a large vartiety of alcoholic drinks as well as freshly made shakes and juices. Jack's bar also does good food.

There is usually a party once a week at Jack's Bar. During the high season these parties are well attended.

Jack Bar has the distinction of being the only bar with an ATM on its premises. This could be disastrous for those on a tight budget!

Eagle Pub and Restaurant

Eagle Pub is perhaps the most famous beach bar in Haad Yao. It is directly on the beach. There is a great view from the second floor. They also have plenty of seating on the beach.

Eagle Pub and restaurant serve beer, wine, spirits, cocktails and of course the infamous samsong bucket.

They play a variety of music and have parties in the high season. For those wanting to escape dance music, Eagle Pub is a good option as they often play Jimi Hendrix and other rock classics.
