“Excellent snorkelling”
Review of Ao Tanot Bay

Although this beach is a tad hard to reach compared to others, it's worth it. The snorkelling here is among the best with Mango Bay. It's a very lovely beach to spend the day, with good food in at least one of the restaurants.

The fishes are literally bumping into u. So the snorchling is a really great experience. The beach is nice. But u have nothing to do there in the evening. Restaurants are also a little bit more expensive and not really good. But if u are looking for a quite place it's definitely a small paradise.

the beach itself has a lot of potential but it's NASTY. filled with litter and syringes from gross hippies. BUT the water is amazing and the snorkeling is some of the best I've ever experienced. It's a must see.

Amazing snorkelling, lots of fish to see in the shallows, secluded relaxing beach to stay at and chill out!
Coral sand makes walking barefoot on the beach uncomfortable but we were either in the water or horizontal on the beach most of the time so did not bother us!

This is my favorite beach on koh tao, simply walk there and relax, most of the time there is nobody around so you will have some time on your own. Go climbing by the nearby rocks and enjoy swimming or lying in the sun.
