Ao Tanot Bay, Koh Tao

(420+ reviews on the web)
Beach
While a bit hard to reach, the shoreline of Ao Tanot Bay rewards with a vibrant underwater scene just steps into the water. Get the most out of your visit by bringing snorkeling gear to get a close look at the coral reef near the beach. The crystal clear water makes viewing the large formations and tropical fish easy. When you get tired, rest in a nearby restaurant. Keep in mind the beach offers no shade, so consider taking an umbrella. Plan your visit to Ao Tanot Bay and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Koh Tao vacation route planner.
