Amazing beach of Ko Tao, good spot for snorkelling, swimming, and cliff diving. The big rock in the middle give a charm to this spot. Do not miss it if you are in Ko Tao, rent a Motorbike for 1 or 2 day and go there, it's worth !

You can see a lot of coral and fish here. The water is quite clear and good for snorkelling from about 20m out from shore.

This was one of our favorite places in Thailand. The tiny bay is stunning, and you can snorkel right off the beach. Great snorkeling too, although the visibility was a bit low. We came out for the day, and ended up going back the next day and spending the night. Getting there can be a bit hairy, but do it... More

A beautiful and quiet beach on the east side of the island. Great for relaxing, snorkeling or simply enjoying the stunning scenery. It was my wife and I's favorite beach on Koh Tao.

Our favorite bay on koh Tao. We ended up going here almost everyday. There is a good beach (with pretty hot sand), shade if you want it, good snorkeling, water that feels like silk and a big rock you can climb on and jump off if you feel adventurous. The roads there are pretty bad, so make sure you're a... More

We stumbled upon the bay accidentally on the way to Aoew Luk. Couldn't have been happier. Big, big sandy beach. We were there early mind you. The energy there was perfect.
