As it is in between Chaweng and Lamai (coral cove area) and there is a big red sign beside the main road, so, it can be found easily. There is not any entrance fee for snorkeling. Anyone who has a snorkeling mask can just walk pass the reception counter to the beach freely. But for anyone who does not has any equipments they may rent the snorkeling mask and life jacket from the receptionist.The rental price for a snorkeling mask is THB 100 per person per hour. Flipper or life jacket is also THB 100 per person per hour. Deposit money is THB 500 per person and will be returned when the equipment is brought back. There are a lot of fish around coral reef. Moreover, some people also found an octopus and a big crab. The most recommended time for snorkeling is when sunshine and when the wind and wave is calm.Welcome to the snorkeling point of Koh Samui.Hi Coral Cove Bungalow - Snorkeling Point

“Best snorkel site on Samui”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

I've been snorkeling here for six months now and it's definitely the best site on the island, but one shouldn't compare it with Koh Taen nor Koh Tao.

Do note that the conditions may vary greatly but that's always true for underwater sports.

“Great place to swim and snorkel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

We decided to spend a day exploring different swim-able areas of Koh Samui, however, we were unable to rent a bike from our hotel so decided to go up to Coral Cove by Tuk Tuk instead. We got dropped off at the top of the road and made our way down to the beach, which is quite grainy and gets very hot, so make sure you're wearing your sandals! The facilities around the main beach are very basic and we noticed that most of the people on the beach were either living nearby or had brought their own transport, smart choice! There is a small shack with tables outside in the shade where you can order drinks and a bite to eat but not much else. Considering this is touted as the best point for snorkeling in Koh Samui, there isn't anywhere you can actually rent snorkeling gear so make sure to bring your own (you can easily buy it in the market). We hadn't brought any so had to go without.

Up until this point in our trip, every body of water we had taken a dip in (Chaweng beach, the two swimming pools at our hotel) had been uncomfortably warm and did not serve as a respite from the sweltering heat; however the water at coral cove was blissfully cool and joyously calm and had us swimming and frolicking in no time.

The water is not crystal clear but we were able to spot quite a large number of fish even from the surface which made us regret not having snorkeling gear all the more. But we spent a good couple of hours here nonetheless and definitely recommend making the trek, but bringing your own transport is a must!

After our swim we hiked up to Dr. Frogs (about 10-15 mins walk mostly uphill) and enjoyed delicious thai and italian food with the best view in Koh Samui!

Snorkling was pretty ok. Lots of fishes but water wasn't very clear. Easy to cut your feet on the coral.

We just came for a visit. Snorkeling was okay. Water was warm but a bit murky, so saw few fishes. Chalets look nice
