Haad Tian (Haad Thian / Haad Tien) is a small bay that lies between the larger and more famous beaches Haad Yao and Haad Salad lies. (Towards the north you first reach the smaller beach Haad Gruad).

The Bay Haad Tian on the west coast is by far not as well known as the homonymous Haad Tian on the east coast of Koh Phangan, which is a lot bigger. Haad Tian West has only one resort on the edge of the bay. The beach, a mixture of sand and coral remains, is freely accessible. The water is very suitable for swimming here at high tide, since it is relatively deep all year round. This applies at least to the area directly on the beach. If you swim a bit out, the water will become lower again, as this is the coral reef that surrounds the entire west coast. Due to the short distance of the reef to the beach Haad Tien wonderful for snorkeling.
