#1 of 18 in Parks in Koh Tao
Snorkel and dive among the teeming coral reefs at Koh Nang Yuan, a privately owned island. A diving instructor teaches beginners and provides refresher courses for those who haven't dived in a while. After working up an appetite swimming, dine at the island's restaurant, or enjoy a drink or two at the beach bar. Climb to the top of the densely forested hill via a well built trail for panoramic views of the island and nearby Ko Tao.

  • We visited the island at the end of a snorkeling tour around Koh Tao. It's a wonderful place that's not at all different from the one you see in the guidebook and other photos. Just sit there about one meter from the shore and the fish comes near and you can bite your body.

  • Nice walk up but obviously very touristic. Good snorkeling areas but watch out you wont get a sunburn!!  more »

  • Beautiful island, well worth a visit if you're on Koh Tao. Word to the wise - don't attempt to take any plastic bottles or tin cans with you as you won't be allowed to take them past the dock (pollution concerns). We thought we were being smart bringing water and beers with us. Lovely snorkelling spots off the sand bar
  • Worth it for the view point and the snorkeling. But there are too many tourists during most of the day. You have to get a boat taxi (300B per person RT which seemed pretty standard) and another 100B entrance to the island. Don't bring any plastic bottles or they will make you throw them out. The last boats leave at 5 pm so need to make it to the pier by then.
