4.5
#1 of 13 in Beaches in Koh Tao
While a bit hard to reach, the shoreline of Ao Tanot Bay rewards with a vibrant underwater scene just steps into the water. Get the most out of your visit by bringing snorkeling gear to get a close look at the coral reef near the beach. The crystal clear water makes viewing the large formations and tropical fish easy. When you get tired, rest in a nearby restaurant. Keep in mind the beach offers no shade, so consider taking an umbrella.

  • Hard to get to with a scooter whose brakes are not very sure, big descent with turns. You have to master. Beautiful place does not deserve the scares to access it by road. Maybe you have to go by taxi boat.

  • A beautiful beach where you can snorkel, the starting point of several diving clubs. It is possible to make the big jump from a huge rock planted in the sea facing the beach.
