This is one of the best places on the island to visit. I will definitely come back here for another visit.

To go to Tanote Bay, unless you rent a motorbike (a bit risky), you must take a taxi from Mae Haad Village. They won't go for less than 400B one way. So if you're several people, it's still ok. Our taxi-driver agreed to pick us up after.
It takes about 20 minutes to get to Tanote Bay via a spectacular road, which is not paved all the way to Tanote. Once you are there, it looks absolutely gorgeous: the view, the sea, the nice sandy beach. There are a few resorts and some cafés & restaurants. So, you can enjoy your time while there. Once again, the water is crystal-clear and as soon as you get inside, you are surrounded by a host of lovely tropical fishes.

Awesome snorkelling, some amazing reef fish and ace coral. Definitely worth a visit. Just wish the locals and tourists would spend more time picking up the litter!

The snorkeling here is among the best with Mango Bay. We made a day boat trip around the island. Sure we come back again. The fishes are litterally bumping into you. If you are looking for a quite place it's definitely a small paradise.

One of my favourite beaches on Koh Tao. Really beautiful and loads of space. Nice restaurant for lunch on the far left as you face the sea. Make sure you visit.
