“Quiet beautiful beach with amazing Snorkeling”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

The title pretty much says it. This beach was just a 30 minute walk from our room at the Koh Tao Bamboo Huts and it was great. The snorkeling was some of the best I saw on the whole island and its not nearly as crowded as many of the hot spots.

Walked to a random little restaurant that you wouldn't think much of, but the food was quite delicious!

Overall - highly recommended!

“stunning beach”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

the snorkelling is fantastic here and the beach is secluded and protected making it ideal for families. But it is a corally and sharp to walk on so take dive shoes if you can

“Beautiful rubbish covered beaches”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

It was gorgeous, a real shame they don't keep the beach and ocean clean, we spent 10 minutes pulling the plastic and rubbish from the water, what a shame.

“My Favorite Beach in Thailand”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

I loved it here!! It was quiet and peaceful. The beach is small and the ocean there is clear and not littered with trash from tourists (like some beaches in Thailand). And they had a nice restaurant right on the ocean. I want to stay at the bungalows here, when I visit again. Its easy to get to, we rented a motorbike and drove here ourselves or you can get song taew for 100 baht each way. But it makes way more sense to rent a motor bike for 200 baht a day and put two people on it. The islands small and you can ride everywhere.

“Amazing beach!”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

Most beautiful beach on Koh Tao, just some 30 minutes walk from Chalok. Pssst! Keep this secret :) You can also stay there for very reasonable prices.
