    Koh Tan
    Stop: 2 hours -
    A short boat ride from Koh Samui, one finds Koh Tan (Coral Island), a classic desert island location. The adventure starts with a short drive to Thong-Krut Bay where we board a long-tailed boat for the 20-minute journey to this adjoining island situated off the southern tip of Samui. For those keen to do more than soak up the sun rays, the southern end of the beach has a fantastic snorkelling spot with an abundance of coral that is home to a plethora of colourful tropical marine creatures. Legend has it that the island is bewitched and, as a result of the ancient spell cast on it, no dogs can live here! The west side of the island has a mangrove forest with a sturdy boardwalk so visitors can see how the mangroves act as a haven for land and sea creatures without damaging the sensitive eco-system. The island is traffic-free and without electricity so there is total solitude. Although less than half-an-hour from Samui, Koh Tan is a world away from its bigger neighbor. There is plenty of free time for snorkelling, swimming or just relaxing in the sun.

Koh tan would have to be one of the most stunning islands I have ever been too, it has crystal clear water which makes snorkeling a dream as you can see all the fish from a long way away. The beaches are what you see on a postcard and are absolutely stunning. The people and the
