Very clean and beautiful bay. Little coral, but.... SHARK! And I stayed in the water! A lovely swim in crystal clear water

One of my favourite beaches on a Koh Tao. Great snorkelling with loads of baby black tip sharks and you can hire decent gear at a reasonable price. Pretty busy later in the day but still loads of space. Nice bar/restaurant overlooking the beach. Should certainly be visited whilst in koh tao we did half a day there and half a day at Tanote Bay just further up the coast which is also great.

Best place on island for snorting, respect the coral, don't touch and it will stay that way. Took my wife for the first time and she was treated with purple dotted sting ray, baby black tip reef sharks, yellow butterfly fish and an array of reef life. Even one of two soft corals surviving around the edge of the bay.

In May time, the tides are low in the day meaning this is the most easily accessible beach, at this time of year, for snorkelling. It has a sandy entry where baby sharks swim around 10m in from the waters edge and either side of the bay there is a coral nursery with many many fish. Parrot fish, Grouper, angelfish, etc. Ao Tanote and Shark bay both have a lot of coral and rocks close the waters edge which make it difficult without damaging the marine life you
are trying to observe. The beach is clean and it wasn't too busy either day I went.

We LOVED the Aow Leuk Bay for snorkeling. When we went, there were lots of baby black tipped reef sharks, along with so many kinds of colorful fish. The beach was not crowded, especially in the morning. Beautiful beautiful beach with turquoise blue water.
