Koh Tan, Ko Samui

4.3
#4 of 11 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 .

  • Very recommend to visit this little island. It is very small and still wild (but already with restaurants). The way from Samui is very short.  more »
  • The beach itself is not really as nice, however, I found this Palm tree here to take pictures. Otherwise, some trips can be booked from here. A dolphins tour which is highly recommended. Are there on Koh Samui pink dolphins to see it!

  • Great day with "Dad Yves" a breton installed on the island where there is no electricity. The day was beautiful and interesting. On the island there is no noise, quiet. The sea is beautiful, we are make little snorkeling or there are lots of varieties of fish. Don't be surprised by arriving on the island to see all waste on the sides, these coming from neighboring islands by the sea. We recommend this tour
