Arrived on a tour as the weather started to get rough. Tried to snorkel the Japanese Gardens but the white caps made it very difficult. The sand blowing across the beach when exiting the water was unbelievable. The hike up to the viewpoint was great....More

Gorgeous viewpoint, pretty hefty 100 baht to be on island. Very crowded. So hot at top... bring water!

The island looks spectacular from a far, but up close a monster lurks. We went to it as part of a snorkeling trip, and it was pretty bad. Loads of tourists huddled off the boat to get awful milkshakes.

You can't deny that the island is beautiful. The lookout is stunning, and the surrounding snorkeling and diving are world class. However... the glass in this case is half empty. Many tours offer a stay at the island as part of the tour around the...More

Really enjoyable visit to Koh Nang Yuan. We walked up to the viewpoint and were very impressed - beautiful views, well worth the walk! The cafe is reasonably priced for drinks, a tad pricey for food but nothing out of the way.

We are a family of 5, and this is my 2nd trip to Koh Nang Yuan after 15 years. The island was overcrowded with visitors and it seems the aquatic life has almost vanished. Corals are bleached and mostly dead, and schools of colorful fishes...More

Spent 4 hours here and that was plenty. Had a swim, went for a walk up the look out and took lots of pics. Definitely worth it. We took a long tail boat over from Lamai beach for $300 baht return, cheap!

We visited Koh Nang Yuan as the final stop on a round-the-island snorkeling trip. We expected it to be the best stop, but it was awful. Tourists were funneled off the boats and along a jetty onto a few small stretches of beach and a...More

What is the best time to arrive here? Would it be better as soon as entry opens at 10am or around 2pm when most people would leave? Thanks

I've been told early afternoon from the locals on Koh Tao, due to the large numbers or tourist groups that come early morning. However, it may not make to big a difference if it's not busy season and the islands are not... More

Hello. Possible, but price will be high. Better to use 1-day tour or just go be big ship or fast big boat (2-3 times per day) to Koh Tao and there rent a local taxi boat to Koh Nang Yuan (about 300 Baht in both ways)
best way to visit Koh Nang Yuan from phuket ? itinerary? time needed? mean of transportation etc.

Flight to Koh Samui (about an hour) and then a ferry to Koh Tao (three hours), then a ferry from Koh Tao (half hour). Certainly not worth it for just a day trip but if you're going to Koh Tao for other reasons, it's nice
