The full moon party begins at dusk when the Moon rises over the white sand beach, and until it goes right down, you can just sit on with friends on a round table or on the beach and sip on your drinks.

Make sure you dispose the wastes in the waste disposing bins provided there, dont litter waste everywhere, because these are some of the reasons why the authorities want to stop the festival.
