“Not that great.”
Review of Ao Thian Ok

Ranked #23 of 51 things to do in Koh Tao
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 April 2013

We got to Thian Og by scooter but had quite a trek down to the beach through what looked like a construction site (new resort being built?). The beach was nice enough, sandy and quiet-ish but the snorkelling was nothing special. The water was murky and despite swimming right out to the edge of the bay, the coral was nearly all dead. We were lucky enough to spot one reef shark which made the trip worth it, but if you are looking for brighter water, coral and fish, rather go to Aow Leuk.

Our favorite beach with trees that provide shade on the hot days. We found the water much more calm than on the eastern beaches.

Beach was alright, quite a lot of litter, lots of mosquito's at dusk. We got a taxi from sairee for 500 baht, one of the restaurants offered a taxi service but this was 1200 baht back and the driver was incredibly drunk!Lucky we had a card for the taxi we arrived in.

This beach use to be accessable from the road near Freedom beach but now it is more like a private beach for a luxury resort. The beach is nice and sandy but the snorkelling is not as good as on the other beaches (Mango Bay, Tanote, Hin Wong). On the other hand, it is the best place to see sharks while snorkelling on Ko Tao.

Great spot for snorkelling and diving! Amazing beach with white sand. You can rent kayak right off the beach. Get one and go snorkelling further out, you will see more stuff!
