Beach vaacation at the beginning of October

Hello,

Me and my partner are going to travel to Thailand for 2 weeks at the beginning of October. We know its off-season, but still want to rest on the beautiful beaches of Thailand.

Is ko Tao a good option?

How many days/hours of rain should we expect? how rough is the sea?

Also, if you happen to have a specific beach to recommend we will be grateful. We are above 30, no children, looking for a quiet retreat. Noting sophisticated, a hut on a lovely beach will do... We have been to Had-yuan 10 years ago and loved it.

Thank you all!

Koh Tao is in monsoon season at this time, seas can be rough and it can be wet:

October is possibly the worst month to hit Thailand as pretty much everywhere is wet - the driest beach area is probably Hua Hin which probably wouldn't fit your bill. Here's the average rainfalls for Thailand beach areas:

Trang: 21.9 days and 282.3 rainfall

Phuket: 22.8 days and 347.5 rainfall

Koh Samui: 19.6 days and 303.5 rainfall

Hua Hin: 16.4 days and 230.8 rainfall

All the other beach areas get progressively worse, so take your pick!

October is a very hit or miss month. Sometimes lots of rain everyday, sometimes a few small storms a week.....it's hard to predict.
