H. Sai Daeng
Practically only reachable by boat. There is torturous track that is reserved for locals. This is the beach for those wishing to get away from it all!!
I. Thian Og Bay
Locally known as shark bay lovely but tricky to get to and involves a motorbike ride and a short taxi boat. This is the place for snorkelling with sharks. Are they big? Up to 2 metres. Are they dangerous? Not under normal circumstances but do take care.
J. Freedom Beach
This beach is fairly small with an even smaller beach tucked just a 50 metre paddle southwest. It's rare to find more than a dozen people on this beach. Interesting snorkelling look out for bluespotted stingray sleeping under the rocks.
K. Chalok Baan Kao
Located on the southern most tip of Koh Tao Chalok is the second largest beach after Sairee. It has lots of beachside bars - interesting at night but not that great a beach. However, it is very shallow and therefore good for families with children.
L. June Juea Beach
A small quiet beach located on the southwest of the island where you'll find that you are probably the only visitor. If you want a day out away from it all this is the place for you.
M. Sai Nuan Beach
This series of very attractive turquoise bays and palm-fringed beaches can be reached on foot from either Mae Haed or Chalok Baan Kao. These bays are tranquil but not easily accessible.
N. Jansom Bay
A small protected bay good for kids because there is no current and the water is quite shallow and clear. There is a wealth of marine life including many colourful coral fish. It's a privately owned beach so you have to pay a small entrance charge.
O. Mae Haad Beach
The piers are located here and this is where you will land when you arrive on Koh Tao. Lots of shops, travel agents, dive shops, bars, banks, email services, bike rental shops and restaurants. The beach is shallow and therefore ideal for kids.
