It's a pretty decent beach, but filled with boats waiting for people to go to Pig Island. I only went to this beach for the tour too. Has some nice displays outside to take pics like boats and a watch tower. There's a bar there as well. You have to pay 10/20 baht to use the toilet though. Best part is that the bar has a bulldog that likes pushing a football with its head the entire day, a pretty kitten, and a goat that that bites everything. Wouldn't recommend anyone to go all the way down just for it though.

It's more of a location for getting long tail boats to Koh Mudsum, Koh Tan, or Kharnom on the mainland to perhaps see the pink dolphins ....(normally for the mainland trip it should be per-arranged). There are a number of tour operators providing services.

The are some nice restaurants along that stretch of coast... it is a pleasant place to stop for lunch or a drink and take in the views.

Thong Krut Beach is a peaceful beach and is picture post card.

The place is really so quiet that you would have thought that we were the only ones there.

It’s also a great place to catch a boat to the other islands nearby or make a boat tour of the area.

The boat people are very considerate and will not rev their engines going Pass when they are near the beach and it’s lovely seeing the fishermen and tour boats come and go during the day.

Beach wise there’s a part of the beach along the man made water way for the boats that’s littered with broken corals but on either side of it, the water is clear and really beautiful.

Fisherman village facing the island , very charming spot , calm peaceful , where you can relax , have a drink or lunch far from the tourists crowds ! You may also rent a long tail boat and visit the two main islands , fantastic mangroves in koh tan ... pristine sandy beach with nobody in the other one .
My favorite place in Samui !

We hired a car to do a circle drive of island, armed with an excellent map we set out, first driving north then north east. I had taken the time prior to leaving home of having a lot of options on such a drive to experience the good restaurants and beaches along the way, looked great on paper but in reality, didnt happen. The signs for turnoffs were AT THE ACTUAL TURNOFF, no giving us a kilometre or so to get ready, so with the traffic hot on our tails, the majority of time we just got pushed right past, and turning around was nigh on impossible. We did eventually arrive at THONG KRUT beach where we hoped to find the NUCH'S GREEN TALAM RESTAURANT to have lunch, very well written up on TripAdvisor, BUT like so many restaurants on Ko Samui, they do not open until round 3pm or later. SO directly opposite was a family style Thai restaurant filled with people from all over the world, with very good local fare Thai Food. It had no name from what I could see, but directly opposite Nuch's on the beach. The beach is supposed to be one of the better ones on Ko Samui, it was fine, but not spectacular. Driving on about 150 mtrs on the left after lunch we came across lady selling coconuts for 20 Baht, a bargain in Thailand, which in general we found very expensive.

Allthough, you could enter the sea there, there are surely better places to be when you‘re looking for a nice beach. However, the restaurants and bars are great! Not very touristy, quiet and romantic. So if you go there, visit the beach for lunch or dinner. For swimming, drive a few miles more.

Very quiet and remote and very little to do on Thong Krut Beach, the beach is not suitable for swimming as it is shallow and mostly crushed coral so you will need footwear to walk along the shore. Longtail boat tours depart from the beach daily. We stayed at The Beach and located next door is Boy's Coffee, the best coffee you will find anywhere on Samui and opens at 9 am, we ate breakfast daily at KT tours located next door as well and opens at 7am. Plenty of restaurants to eat at for dinner and the ones we dined at were all excellent.

Dead coral everywhere, thongs or shoes are required to walk to the water.The depth of the water is approx 300mm (12 inches) for approx 200 mtrs from the shore with rotting timber, garbage and dead coral all over. Near the township there are long boats and speedboats for the tourists so the water has a smell diesel andis unappealing

We were lucky enough to rent a house directly on the beach, the beach is beautiful with overhanging palm trees and only a small area where restaurants etc border it, these are subtle and tasteful. The water is shallow for an extensive distance into the bay, but it is perfectly possible to swim except at perhaps the lowest tide. The beach is clean sandy. It is lovely to see that the local people are still able to continue their traditional fishing methods. There are a number of boat trips which leave from here, they are not intrusive and the boats slow on entering the pier area.
There is a7-11 and next door is the T.K supermarket, this has just about everything you need, the prices for beer, water, wine etc are only a couple of baht above Tesco and their fresh vegetables, limes lettuce, mangoes pineapples etc are better quality and cheaper .
There are several restaurants along the road with their own review areas on here, but in case tripadvisor won’t let me add, the must do place to eat if Fah Sai restaurant if you love authentic Thai food, beautifully presented and some of the best examples of dishes I have ever eaten for crazy price.
