Owner description: This beautiful, remote cove has a sandy beach and is accessible by foot or by boat.

Easy enough to find. Just take the road to the Bambo Huts, after which you will no longer be able to ride a scooter or vehicle. It's around 15min walk from there and well sign posted. Alternatively take a taxi boat but at 500 baht it isn't worth it. My girlfriend and I walked all the way from Sairee Beach. The beach is very picturesque but the sand isn't great and there are a lot of shells and rocks. Fairly quiet and good snorkel spot with many fish. The highlight is SIAM COOKIES! The best food I have had in Koh Tao, may be in Thailand! Walk out of the beach towards the restaurants and find it there. Try the massaman pork. Overall the beach is definitely worth it but don't go expecting Maya Beach!

This beach is absolutely amazing. It is picture perfect with trees (good for shade) and stunningly clear water. Excellent for snorkeling.
A nice cove safe for families to rest at. Well worth the walk through the other resorts to get there (don't attempt to walk the other road out of there... Very hilly and easy to get lost!!).

This is one of the beaches to visit and I went to all of them on the island. I took a ride on the bike and cooled off with a swim. Well worth it.

Getting there might be a bit of a challenge but it's worth it! Once you are at Jan Som Bay, whose beach is already beautiful, you must take a small forest path. There are signs. It may look like being in the jungle but the path is fine all the way to the beach. You must walk past the Bamboo Resort and keep on walking across this rocky coast until you finally reach Sai Nuan Beach. It takes between 15 to 20 minutes but once you are there, it seems yo have reached paradise!
