Quiet bay

Good to get away from Sairee beach. Sandy beach and clear water. Relax in the sun and just take a dip inthe sea what more do you need.

Just take a picnic (and leave no rubbish behind) and chill "on the rocks". Just a very nice place to be.

Spend our last morning on the island as a family here. Very pretty and private little bay with small beach. Away from everything except local hotel guests. Beach use is free (as it is in the whole of Thailand), but you will be charged for the use of the beach chairs (belong to the hotel), but totally worth it, and... More

Could be the best beach on koh tao but unfortunately no sunset because it's on the south part of the island. Only one hi class resort there, kind of private beach so they not so happy with the other visitor. Anyway this is the beach you can't be missed on koh tao !!

The Raft restaurant is only about 500 metres from shore. We chose our lunch by borrowing snorkeling masks from the Raft and swimming under where there are live fish in large cages accessable...
