A. Sairee Beach


This is the beach nearest to Anankhira. and it is our end of the beach that is the best. Facing almost due west it is the best place on the island for watching stunning sunsets. Head here for if you're looking for fun and entertainment. 

 

B. Nang Yuan

The famous hour-glass island with the ‘Japanese Gardens’ coral only 400 metres off Koh Tao.  It requires a short boat trip and can get very busy. The dive site known as Japanese Gardens the coral is a wonderment of colours and shapes. Snorkelling is fantastic.

 

C. Mango Bay

After Sairee Mango Bay is our favourite but it is only accessible by taxi boat. Sandy shallow areas, beautiful shallow coral, deeper rock dives along the shoreline. Fortunately the bay is large enough to cope with the many boats that moor up there.

 

D. Hin Wong Bay

One of the more remote bays on Koh Tao. Clear warm water, seclusion and dramatic scenery provides for an outstanding experience. This part of the island shelves rapidly so is a good site for confident and capable swimmers to snorkel. 

 

E. Liam Thain 

A very small bay or cape offers great snorkelling and scuba diving. Snorkelling around the rocks can be rewarding and equipment can be rented here, together with kayaks.  

 

F. Tanote Bay

Access can be difficult but once you will also see an abundance of barred rabbit fish, sergeant fish and tripletail wrasse - definitely recommended for snorkeling. Rocks divide the beach which is a coarse type of sand so wear Flip flops!

 

G. Ao Leuk

Fins, masks, snorkels and kayaks are available for hire here. The snorkelling is wonderful.Look especially for turtles you might also catch a glimpse of Blue Ringed Angel Fish and the stunning lined butterfly fish.
