We went to this beach to hang out and cool off in the ocean. Didn’t even know how much there is to see here! We had snorkels and masks and we spent ages exploring the reefs. There’s tons of fish including my favourite parrot fish!...More

Interesting beach to snorkel from out to Shrark island and around coastal rocks but be careful of strong waves and currents. Wait until after 8.30 am when the seaweed has been cleared or it's like swimming in a bowl of cornflakes.

Spent the morning relaxing on this beach. Quite a steep and bendy road to get there, but well worth it. Wish I had booked one of the beach villas rather than where I had stayed.

Dirty sea because of boats - fuel oil was on my both legs, no sand (small stones instead), no shadow, no hammocks or swings other beaches have

We were searching for geocaches on the island and were brought here. What’s a great beach! Rented a snorkel at Calypso Diving school and spent a few hours swimming and sunning! So glad we came here!

its a bit of a motorcycle ride and not for the faint hearted, the road is good but the slopes and hairpins could test beginners, once you overcome your nerves you'll be greeted by a great beach, good for swimming and snorkeling, there are two...More

My favorite bay on Koh Tao for snorkeling from the beach (no boat ride required). Unfortunately the wind is known to blow in from the NE in January causing it to occasionally too rough to snorkel. If this is the case, head over to Freedom...More
