“Very worthy and beautiful !!!”
Review of Ao Tanot Bay

A wonderful place, calm, and with excellent snorkelling.

The only drawback is the access... unless you drive a motorbike, you will need a driver, that can be costly if you are alone or a couple.

You can try to wait at the crossing in the main road and see if somebody would take you...

Jumping from the rock is something to die for (not literally), but becareful when climbing the fixed rope, as it is a bit worn out on top because of dragging with the rough granite rock.

An amazing beach with great snorkelig and not too crowded. There's a huge rock out in the water that you can jump from - it's a lot of fun! The drive there is also well worth it, make sure your scooter or taxi has decent breaks! ;)

This little bay is well worth a visit if you are out exploring the island. I will return to this one as it is not the most visited which I liked.

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.
