“Beautiful beach”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Very beautiful beach. Everyone can reach it not only by boat but also by the road along the sea from Mae Haad beach.

Reviewed March 11, 2014

The most pristine beach in Koh Tao. We stayed at Pinnacle resort and we only walked 15 minutes to this amazing beach.

“Best beach of our trip”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

Went to a handful of beaches in Ko Tao and Ko Phangan and this was our favorite. Quiet, secluded, clean, and close to a decent cafe and bar. The huts there looked nice and would be a great place to stay if you wanted some serious beach time.

Longtail taxis come by regularly if you need a lift back to town or to another beach. We walked here from the Koh Tao Bamboo Huts and it wasn't bad at all, very picturesque walk along the water.

Great snorkeling from the beach — snorkeled here all day and saw tons of different fish. Swim out a ways and you'll find some great live coral. I even saw a big 4ft hawksbill turtle, just hanging out and eating for about 5 minutes, surrounded by colorful parrotfish.

Really bounty island beach ! Did a snorkel stop here during a roundtrip with a watertaxi. Is really the most beautiful beach on the island.

“Beautiful quiet beach, away from the divers...”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

We stayed in Sai Nuan for about 3 weeks. It is a very nice set of small beaches with lots of rocks and fish around.

The bungalows are very basic but they are comfortable enough and good value, close to nature and the sea, some of them are built on the rocks right above the sea. This place is a lovely 40mn mini-trek from the Mae Haad pier, hence the best guests!

I recommend you stay and eat either at Siam Cookies or Sai Thong. Avoid the restaurant at the further end of the beach even if it has better views. Siam Cookies is the best cook around and the Rock bar opposite is nice for evening drinks.

You will need a lamp to head back to Mae Haad at night time though most of the path is lit up by the near-by resorts.
