“Beautiful beach for sun baking”
Review of Ao Thian Ok

Ranked #25 of 54 things to do in Koh Tao
Attraction details
Reviewed 26 June 2013

Beautiful beach with a stretch of white sand along a bay with mangrove-like trees. Can get a little crowded as the beach is long but not very wide. I wouldn't recommend the bay for snorkelling, but it is lovely for sunbaking.

We took a snorkelling trip and this was the first stop. Very disappointed as the corals were all dead?! Did not see any sharks, but did see some fish but nothing interesting really. Go to Ao Leuk, Hin Wong and Mango Bay instead.

Stay to the right of the bay and in shallow water you will see many small black type reef sharks. Very exciting and not scary as they are just 30-40 cms each.

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.
