    Good main island beach, lots of options
    Long, main beach of the island. It's where most of the nightlife, restaurants and bars are. If you've travelled around, you've seen the same thing in most islands. This is more low key, a less developed island and main beach. Great places to chill or party, whatever you're into.

    Typical Thailand beach with garbage and sewage
    Smells like sewage and plenty of garbage in and around the water. The diving boats drop liters upon liters of oil into the water everyday so you are swimming in that as well. The restaurants and bars along the beach are pretty low quality catering to drunk teenagers. Overall, it's your typical Thai beach. Don't go with high expectations.

    Buzzy not busy
    Just loved everything about this place. The vibe was buzzy without being busy. Plenty of hotels and restaurants of various types from luxury to backpacker along the beach. Clean sand. Clear water what’s not to love?

When you arrive at this idylic looking island , the small port , enticing bars and more , your feelings rise to a new high , having travelled for certainly a few days across land by bus sea and train , not excluding your long haul flight .
Sure take it all in , relax have a beer think about getting her between the sheets later , why not, its natural . Book in , take a stroll , but what beach , hey , no probs have many , check out a beach bar , which one , no probs plenty
Now google the history of the island , a what , ' penal colony ' , well hey thats makes it all the more intriquing right .
Now walk that beach , having read the history , that sure will freak you out, but hey your barve . Sure need to be there .

Nice beach but dirty,smelly and the only place on Koh Tao where I saw a fresh “log” in the water. To be fair could have been deposited by one of the many dogs.
Nowhere to sit comfortably - unless you like crowds, noise and drain smells - don’t bother

Chose the best room in hotel, huge private patio and sun loungers, plus an outside hot jacuzzi bath. Overlooked the beach and pool. Breakfast was really nice included. Town was just a short walk away

Nice beach for having a drink or lunch. Loads of restaurants. Sea full of boats so not so great for swimming.

We went out with a group of friends and we were lucky we did. A couple of drinks into the night my fiancé had her drink spiked and she went down really hard. Pretty sure it was at the fish bowl bar. Do your research it’s renowned for drink spiking in sairee beach. Luckily we got her home in time before something bad happened. If you’re travelling solo as a female give the whole island a miss. It has a murky vibe . Not friendly or vibrant like the rest of Thailand !

This beach just doesn't exist at high tide because so many business are built too close to the sea!
You can see sewage water going directly in the sea , that's very smelly!
It 's a place where you don't feel in Thailand!
