  • Amazing place, after a 45 minute hike through the jungle. Quite surprising that they built something so remote, only good accessible by sea, but it didn’t last at the end. Good to see the jungle recla...  more »
  • We took the scooters from Sairee Beach towards Hin Wong Bay - in front of the Tarna Aligne Resort you have to turn right and drive up to the steep ascent of the road. From here it is still about 45 min on foot - absolutely sneakers, no flip-flops! - depending on how much time you take to observe the wildlife (snakes, squirrels, butterflies, lizards). We had something to eat, viieeel water and our snorkeling equipment, because we actually wanted to spend the day on a beautiful bay. As soon as you reach the abandoned resort, you walk down the mountain at collapsing huts and then come to the former main house. Here are noisy glass shards of smashed window panes and bottles lying around - totally a pity! Other rubbish is also not to be overlooked. The small beach section offers a shady spot under a tree and we were almost alone, but that's it. You always have an eye on the ruins. Also the snorkeling was more than disappointing - heaps of broken, dead corals - in between some fish...... there are definitely a thousand times better snorkeling spots on Koh Tao! If you want to paddle quickly to Laem Thian, rent a kayak at Tanote Bay and paddle around the corner - is much less sweaty. After an hour we made our way back disappointed.
