Sairee Beach
The longest and most popular beach on the island, Haad Sairee stretches from the statue of Rama V in the south to the headland at the far north, almost opposite Koh Nang Yuan. It boasts both busy entertainment areas at the southern end and quieter, less-trafficked areas toward the headland. The water is very shallow -- in places you can walk for ages and get no deeper than your waist. Snorkellers are better served staying on other beaches.

Haad Sairee is home to some of the most upmarket resorts on the island along with backpacker favourites through to mid-range places ideal for families. In the evenings entertainment can be very loud, so light sleepers are better off staying toward the northern end. It's also a very popular beach -- if you're aiming for landing on Haad Sairee in peak season, a reservation is a very good idea -- places, particularly the cheaper ones fill up quickly.

A couple of small bays and beaches with a handful of resorts are dotted beyond the north end, with most places having either good views over the beach or offshore to Koh Nang Yuan. It's a sleepy spot but close enough to the main strip for a night out.

Mae Haad Town
Is the main town and transport hub of the island – it also happens to be a rather nice beach. It has blossomed into an interesting melee’ of ancient and modern with traditional Thai shop-houses next to contemporary East-Meets west architecture. Apart from all the important bits like the pier, health center, Government Office, travel agents, all the Dive Schools, Post Office, shops etc. there are numerous great restaurants, loads of bars and some of the island’s best clubs and party venues on the main stretch of Mae Haad, whilst the serene southern end hosts some high end resorts.

Ten minutes walk away is Sairee Beach, the longest and most poplar beach on the island – which is like Mae Haad with the important bits removed – great bars, great restaurants, great resorts, great dive schools and 1.7 Km of pristine white sand. It has an excellent view of Koh Nang Yuan islands whilst nearby is a historical heritage site where King Rama V made an inscription in 1899; there are some great jungle walks and the School, Temple, Fishery Museum and Police Station on the road to Mae Haad.

Chaloke Baankao Bay
The second most popular beach on Koh Tao, Chaloke Baankao is overrun with the usual plethora of dive shops, guesthouses, restaurants, travel agents and bars, all of which line the main road running just off the back of the beach.

The beach here is pretty and at low tide passable for sunbathing, but really there are far better spots elsewhere on Koh Tao for laying around in the sun -- just by hiking over the headland to Aow Thian Og will deliver you to a lovely strip of sand all to yourself.

Due to Chaloke Baankao being one of the largest dive centres on Koh Tao, a lot of boat traffic heads in and out throughout the day. Be it divers coming and going, snorkelling trips, round-the-island boat trips, fishing trips or just longtails off on taxi runs from here, Chaloke is not one of Koh Tao's quieter strips of sand. The large number of boats also contributes to the water being a bit murky, particularly towards the western end of the bay.

Head to the eastern stretch of the beach if you plan to spend any time in the water, but if time allows, you're far better served to wander off to another nearby beach. Chaloke Baankao is flanked by beaches and bays to both the east and west, so you need not head too far to find something pretty. On its western lip, at the beginning of the trail around to Mae Haad, you'll find the very pleasant Haad Saal Chao. This spot remains a pleasant area to hang out, despite the sometimes cloudy waters.

Along the eastern rim, running along the peninsula which separates Chaloke Baankao from Aow Thian Og, you'll find Aow Taa Toh which has a single, dive orientated resort and further along the lovely and very isolated Freedom Beach. Both of these have clean beaches and clear waters.

Sai Daeng Beach - Koh Tao
Sai Daeng Beach
Further to the east you'll find the very pretty Haad Sai Daeng where, just offshore, sits Shark Island -- one of Koh Tao's most popular dive spots. The bay itself has some fine snorkelling when the water is calm and there is also more than enough sand to just lay around or plan out world domination or another frisbee-golf course.

While it's a shame that Coral View Resort decided to build a two-storey building right on the beach, the beach nevertheless remains scenic and relatively low key. It's a good choice for those looking for some peace and quiet but who don't want the absolute isolation you'll get on the east coast beaches.

Chaloke Baankao is close enough to be an option for an evening out but if you don't want to wander that far, there are a couple of places to eat at on Sai Daeng itself.

Sai Nuan Beach - Koh Tao
Sai Nuan Beach
The southwest corner of Koh Tao encompasses some terrific, hidden away beaches and bays, with a wide variety of lodgings. Be it a threadbare bamboo shack or a comfortable chalet with WiFi access, you'll find something suitable along this stretch of Turtle Island.

There's a rough and ready trail which leads from Mae Haad all the way around to Chaloke Baankao, but if you've got anything more than a light backpack or shoulder bag, you're better off taking a longtail to your bay of choice rather than traipsing through the jungle.

After leaving the southern reach of Mae Haad the first spot you'll find is the privately owned Jan Som bay, followed by Haad Sai Nuan, Laem Je Ta Kang and eventually Aow Gul Juea. After that you're but a hop, skip and a jump from Chaloke Baankao via the lovely Haad Saal Chao.

Aow Leuk Bay - Koh Tao
Aow Leuk Bay
It's easy to see why Aow Leuk is frequently cited as the most beautiful beach on Koh Tao, with its sweeping white-sand beach dotted by just two very basic guesthouses.

The beach backs onto a coconut plantation and there's ample space for laying around and taking it easy. This really is a beautiful spot and even if you're not planning on staying here, Aow Leuk is at least worth a day trip.

Aow Leuk Bay sits at the end of a long and bumpy unsealed road that runs off to the east from the main road to Aow Tanote. While you could walk to Aow Leuk, it is a very long and pretty hilly walk -- we don't recommend it.

Thian Og Beach - Koh Tao
Thian Og Beach
Glistening Aow Thian Og leaves most of the other beaches on Koh Tao back at the starting post in terms of sheer beauty. The perfect arc of white, fluffy sand and azure waters will leave you breathless. Almost always quiet and serene, this is the perfect place to chill out for an afternoon.

The beach has shade from shrubs rather than trees and is empty much of the time despite its proximity to Chaloke Baankao. While people stay away, sharks flock here, however: it's a popular bay with divers.

One of the newest and flashest resorts on Koh Tao, Jamahkiri, has a monkey enclosure, ensuring the peculiar calls of primates now ring out regularly across the bay.

Aow Thian Og is separated from Chaloke Baankao by a peninsula, and on the eastern flank of this peninsula, facing Aow Thian Og, you'll find Aow Taa Chaa which has good snorkelling and a couple of very well-appointed resorts perched on its edge.

Hinwong Bay - Koh Tao
Hin Wong Bay
Hin Wong Bay remains one of our all-time favourite spots in Thailand. If you happen to find yourself on Koh Tao when the prevailing winds are coming from the southwest (June, July and August) this can be a very special place as the waters are dead calm and ideal for snorkelling.

One of the most isolated bays on the island, Hin Wong has just a few very basic bungalow resorts, so even when it isn't calm, you can easily swing the days away in your hammock and just enjoy the peace and quiet.

Hin Wong also attracts a steady slow of dive trips from elsewhere on the island who come to dive at Hin Wong Pinnacle -- a tabletop formation that sits in the middle of the bay. The pinnacle, with an average dive depth of just under 20m is known for its soft corals and ample sealife, including the occasional hawksbill turtle.

Laem Thian Beach - Koh Tao
Laem Thian Beach
This very small beach at the end of a nasty road has some great snorkelling and as there's just the one resort on the bay, it never gets too crowded. If you'd like to visit on a daytrip, negotiate it as part of a boat trip around the island, as the taxis in Mae Haad charge exorbitant prices to get here. The road varies according to the weather, but after heavy rain it is a shocker.

The bay here is one of the best places around the island to see turtles and sharks. The beach is a mix of sand, boulders and dead coral in roughly equal proportions. And if you're having trouble getting started in the mornings, just across the rocks from the resort is an eight-metre high pinnacle from which you can jump off into the water below.

Mango Bay - Ao Muong - Koh Tao
Mango Bay
Koh Tao's Aow Muong (Mango Bay) is a very isolated bay at the very northern tip of Koh Tao and is the most recently developed area on the island. The landscape consists of high rocky cliffs and lush green hillsides rising up from the water's edge and offering breathtaking views of the gulf.

The clear blue-green waters of Mango Bay are great for swimming and snorkelling, and one of the island's most beautiful dive locations sits at the centre of the bay.

The resorts here are decidedly upscale and more expensive than elsewhere on Koh Tao, and given the particular isolation of this spot, they lean towards self-contained affairs. You'll get a good deal of comfort and tranquillity for your money.

That said Mango Bay does get a lot of day-tripping diving and snorkelling trips -- this is a secluded spot, but unfortunately not a silent secluded spot.

The focus is on water activities: snorkelling, diving and kayaking. If that's all a bit too energetic, tanning, reading and generally lazing around are also prime activities.

The road access is via a poorly maintained road, so most opt for a longtail.

Tanote Bay - Koh Tao
Tanote Bay
This attractive bay has an outcrop of rocks at its centre and bungalows littered right around its edge. It's a reasonably low-key spot suited to a stay of a few days or a month if you're in for some serious hammock swinging.

Out of season the bay can be too rough for safe swimming, but when the water is calm the snorkelling is excellent. Some people say the diving over this side of the island is better in the low season because the tide doesn't go out as much. It's one of the only places on the island where you can dive directly from the shore.

The road here is particularly bad and deteriorates even further in wet season.

The gorgeous, privately-owned beach lining Jansom bay is one of Koh Tao's hidden gems and regardless of where you're staying on the island, try to make time for a day trip here.

There's some reasonable snorkelling offshore and a rather secluded feel to the bay, making it an ideal spot to while away a day or two with some good books and fine company. If you're planning on staying here, there are just two resorts to choose from -- the original Jansom Bay Resort and the larger Charm Churee Villa Resort & Spa.

As the bay is privately-owned, there's an admission fee to get onto the beach -- though pretending you didn't see the sign seems to work fine.

Koh Nangyuan Island
The private island of Koh Nangyuan which sits off the northwest coast of Koh Tao audaciously charges admission to all visitors -- we're not fans of the island because of this policy.

For those who stay on the island, they tend to enjoy the island in the early morning and later afternoon, but in the middle of the day the island tends to be overrun with day trippers. It's not like Koh Nangyuan has an oversupply of beach real estate, so things tend to get very crowded very quickly -- especially when divers arrive.

Yes the island is very pretty -- Koh Nangyuan is a stunning island formed by three separate rocky outcrops connected by white-sand beach, much of which is submerged at high tide. The view from the southernmost outcrop is particularly impressive.

However Koh Tao does offer plenty of other gorgeous spots that don't charge for the privilege of setting foot on dry land.

Regular longtails from Mae Haad can whisk you out here for 100 THB per person for the return trip. The island will charge you another 100 THB per person to set foot on the island -- how's that for a welcome.

Dive Sites @ Koh Tao

Chumphon Pinnacle
Chumphon Pinnacle, Located 11Km North West of Koh Tao, is one of the premiere dive sites in the gulf. This dive site has a main granite pinnacle which starts around 14 meters beneath the surface. Covered in Magnificent Pink Anemones, Sea Whips and Sponge Corals this is an awesome sight as you descend down one of several buoy lines. As you make your way round this spectacular dive site valleys cut through the rock become visible taking the more experienced scuba diver to depths of around 30 meters.

Southwest Pinnacle
As the names suggests this dive site is found about 13Km South West of Koh Tao. One hour by speed boat from Koh Samui and you find yourself seemingly in the middle of nowhere holding onto a buoy line.Then, as you descend, you realise just why the boat stopped here. A set of huge granite Pinnacles rising from the sandy seabed, the tallest falling just 3 or 4 meters shy of the surface. With depths to 34 meters this dive site is popular with the bigger pelagic species such as Giant Grouper, Barracuda, and Big Eye Trevally.

Sail Rock
Undoubtedly the most famous dive site in the Koh Samui archipelago, this magnificent granite pinnacle rises from the ocean floor to tower 15 meters above sea level. With outer pinnacles adorning the main rock and depths of up to 40 meters, this really is an outstanding dive site. The marine life found at this spectacular dive site seems endless, and the possibility of sighting a Whale Shark is ever present. To say this dive site is unpredictable is an understatement, having had the honour to dive this site over the last 10 years I can honestly say this is one dive site that never fails to deliver a new experience.

Twin Rocks
As you travel from the shallower end of the dive site to the larger pinnacle, Clarks Anemone Fish (Clown Fish) can be found playing up to the divers cameras and fanning their eggs during the spawning season. A swim through can be found on the larger rock, with Cleaner Shrimp and Blue Spotted Sting Rays hiding under a large overhanging ledge just at the entrance.

White Rock
As you descend down one of three buoy lines you'll see large shoals of Yellow Tail Barracuda, and for the lucky diver, small groups of Squid can be seen at around 6 or 7 meters although good luck getting close enough for a picture. Hawksbill Turtles can sometimes be found at the southern most point of this site eating the soft corals which are in plentiful supply. Not paying much attention to the scuba divers, photo opportunities are excellent and a great souvenir.

Green Rock
Short tunnels, Swim throughs, and the Trigger Fish pit, makes this dive site sound like it’s from an Indiana Jones Movie. The small tunnels vary in size and shape, and some can be a bit of a squeeze at times, but there are many larger swim through easily big enough for the faintest of hearts. Then there’s the Trigger Fish pit...

Mango Bay
Situated at the north end of Koh Tao and only accessible by boat this picturesque coral bay is normally the first dive site student divers are taken to. With the entrance being done from the beach it is no wonder this is the perfect site for PADI Discover Scuba Diving, PADI Scuba Diver & Open Water Course and even some PADI Adventure Dives or PADI Advanced Open Water dives can be completed here. To start your diving experience the gentle sloping nature of this dive site makes for easy equalisation and introductory skills.

Japanese Garden
In the shelter of Koh Nang Yuan, Japanese Garden has a sloping nature with large coral formations dotted around a sandy bottom. With depths from 3 meters near the smallest beach of Koh Nang Yuan to 23 meters by Nang Yuan Pinnacle this dive site also has a small wreck in the form of an old dive boat that was sunk in a storm.

Shark Island
Also known as Red Rock, this shark finned shaped island is located at the southern end of Koh Tao. This is one of the dive sites that give a variety of dive options with some of the best submerged rock formations in the area. With depths ranging from 5 meters to around 30 meters again this is a very diverse dive site. For novice and inexperienced scuba divers, be sure to find out the conditions before you dive this site as the currents can sometimes be physically challenging.
