Nature here is absolutely stunning with white coral beaches and turquoise water. Probably one of the most beautiful places to enjoy the sun and the beach and snorkeling in Koh Tao area. Please note that you are not allowed to use beach towels on the sand or fins or swimming shoes. This is to protect the beach and corals and all visitors should respect these rules. As of JAN 2022 the entry fee is 200 baht per person.

Due to Covid there weren’t too many tourists when we visited, but I can imagine the place being excessively crowded in “normal” times. Could be a good idea to go first thing in the morning when it’s not so busy.

There’s also a cool view point on top of the hill (see pics). Climb takes only around 10 minutes and is doable also with elderly people and little children.

Definitely worth a visit!

That's a very beautiful nature spot. Viewpoint provides beautiful picture and nice background for photos. Small walkways are very good to walk on and to make even more cool photos. And the best part was snorkeling in the bay with dozens of types of fish and corals. (Enormous trigger fish, for example)

But the road to Viewpoint can be hard under hot sun, so you may end up soaked at the top. Besides, that's a really small island, so I think it may be overcrowded during high season.
Fortunately, we were able to spend 10 minutes at the Viewpoint alone in June.

Prices in local cafes are crazy, ice cream cost us 3 times more than in 7-11 on Koh Tao, so better come prepared.

I definitely recommend visiting Nang Yuan, just beware of crowds and if you love snorkeling - plan for a half day or full day trip there :)

It is beautiful, however, the prices changed from 100 baht per person to 200 baht per person. The boat trip there will cost around 300 baht per person and everything in the island is over priced. It is beautiful, not saying the opposite, but clearly a way to rip off tourists.

Definitely check it out while on Koh Tao - a quick daytrip and the beach is beautiful. Just make sure to go early, especially if you want to check out the viewpoint. Tour boats start rolling in around 10 am, and it gets fairly crowded.

Beautiful group of islands tied with a sand strip and knee deep water. Its a beautiful trip to the view point to see a bird's eye view of the three.
The restaurant inside the island is very expensive but you can't even take water inside. You can enjoy swimming in the water or sun bath.

Paid 250baht for a return taxi boat ride over.
It was windy and very choppy waves.

Paid 100baht to the arrival man who demanded we took off water shoes, but allowed trainers and other footwear past! Also took plastic bottles from you too.

The climb up to the viewpoint was easy enough, stone steps, and a few larger boulders at the top.
Views were great. Some nice photos too!

The only bar there sold glass bottles drinks. They ran out of a few drinks.
It looks like they will be extending behind the bar area.
There are lockers you can rent. And a few sun loungers, no umbrellas though.

Because the water was choppy we didn't snorkel much, but was told you could literally swim round the island.

We went at 2.30pm and caught the last boat back at 5pm. I'd recomend leaving slightly before 5pm, yes its beautiful without the crowds, but counting the people on the jetty hoping you get on a boat and not left behind was not fun!

Long tailboat was 500bht return, its 100bht to enter the island but you cant take any plastic in so you have to leave bottles of water.
The viewpoint has a bit of a steep climb & quite a difficult climb up onto the rocks, definitely not one for someone with mobility issues. When up there it is absolutely STUNNING, its very busy though & its only a small space so be prepared to get up the top & get some pics.
The actual island is very pretty, lovely views. The water is crystal clear

my experience visiting nang yuan island was way worst than I expected. Too much people around, they dont allow you to enter anything to dring or eat, and you have to buy everythin from them, at super expensive prices. NOT recommended

Really cool place for a couple hours if your staying in koh tao food is obviously going to be a bit more pricey on the island once your there. The view point is breathtaking but you need to wait once you get to the top to take your photos.. you be able to just sit up there and enjoy it since it’s really hot and everybody is waiting l. Bring some snorkel gear to see the under water gardens it’s beautiful a bit off the island just swim towards the scuba boats parked on the opposite side of the pier where you arrive. I took a kayak from sairee it was quick and easy cost 500 for 2 people for 4 hours need to bargain with the guy a bit.

I kayaked here from Koh Tao. This part was a lot of fun. When I arrived I had a fairly aggressive Thai man telling me to pay. My friend (a Thai went first and paid 30baht). I followed only to pay 200 baht with the apparent reason for making up for COVID losses. Foreign people normally pay 100 baht and of course Thai prices remained the same because foreign people apparently have limitless money...

Other than that, the island was busy and felt a bit like a conveyor belt. The queue on the view point was unbearable so we left soon after.

Kayaking was great though, highly recoment from Sairee if you want to go here.
