Koh Tan, Ko Samui

4.4
#5 of 10 in Nature in Ko Samui
Due to the hard-to-reach location of Koh Tan, the island boasts modest tourism, ample beaches, and blue water. Coral reefs surround the island and host a large range of marine life, so take your snorkeling gear. Also hire a bike, explore the island's paths, and find the mangrove forest on the southwest coast. You can get to this attraction by boat, usually hired from one of the nearby fishing villages. Make Koh Tan a centerpiece of your Taling Ngam vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Taling Ngam road trip app .
