Ao Thian Ok, Koh Tao

(110+ reviews on the web)
Beach
Lounge on a sandy beach at Ao Thian Ok. Its name translates to Shark Bay, and if you swim further off shore, you might catch a glimpse of reef sharks, different types of fish, or even giant turtles. Snorkeling is available, even for beginners, and you can stop by one of the restaurants where you can have a meal while enjoying the view of palm trees and clear blue water. It is one of the less-crowded beaches on the island, so it’s ideal for sunbathing or relaxing in the shade of one of many coconut palm trees. Plan your Ao Thian Ok visit and explore what else you can see and do in Koh Tao using our Koh Tao trip itinerary builder.

  • Beautiful beach of white sand, turquoise water. The trees on the beach for those who want to shade. A postcard landscape. Note entry fee of 100baths. We arrived by chance by the rocks to the right of the beach, so we did not have to pay. But c was a little dangerous, don't go through if you are with children or a little older

The coral reef is broken so so much to see, it is unfortunately no longer, with the last cleared much of the dead coral reef so that it is a nice and picturesque beach. swimmer you a bit far out, there is great opportunity to hit on hai:)

  • We have enchanted this beach doyce and calm. We were promised fine sand and turquoise water, we were served :) Personally I really liked the original texture of the sand looks like clay ideal Svein make some sand sculptures! The water was cloudy but very turquoise! Attention to the staff of the hotel complex that prevents tourists to access the beach ignore the guard, scroll down to the beach, they have no right to ask 100 Baht! It of a public beach, do not bend if I just kick out you of the beach of the resort! He doesn't have the right.
