Jansom Bay is a beautiful white sand beach. One of the best on the island of Koh Tao. The beach is only 10 minutes walk from Mae Haad, the main port town, on the south-west side of Koh Tao. It's good for kids because there is no currents and the water is clear and quite shallow. It's a privately owned beach so a small entrance fee will be charged.

Well, this beach is close to the pier. It is private. So, you have to pay to stay in that. If you want to see and take some photos, there is no problem. Enjoy!

This beach belongs to Charm Churee villas. Rundown . The beach is small and not pretty. Th sand is hard. They don't let you sit on loungers unless you are staying in Charm Churee, yet we were staying in Sensi Paradise right beside it which...More

Nice place to relax and swim, clear blue sea. Beach bar and snorkel hire. Part of the Charm Churee Village so might have to pay to use, if you walk further along up and down the steep paths there is another beach too.

You need to go through the Charm Churee Hotel to get to Jansom Bay. We read that you have to pay something like £2 to use the beach but this didn't happen in our case. The Charm Churee beach restaurant is great for lunch too....More

We snorkeled there and there was lot of marine life, but the beach itself could have done with a clean by the private resort located there. A shame.

It is the place to be in the early morning or evening before the sunset. I had a walk on the beach around 7-8 am and it was awesome! Nobody around, sun is rising, azure water, cant be more romantic!
