Snorkel, swim, or sun yourself on the beach, at Aow Leuk Bay. On either side of the bay, boulders and reefs create underwater gardens teeming with coral, colorful fish, and even the occasional baby reef shark. No food or drink is allowed on the pristine white sand beach, but two restaurants serve delicious fresh seafood and traditional Thai dishes at reasonable prices. You can pop in and out at your leisure.

  • A not-too-busy bay 100 bath where you paid for the entrance. You'll get a drink, free tv access and a lounge chair/hammock. The sand is soft and white and this continues into the water. Especially for a day just swimming, this is so fine. On the sides, against the rocks, you can if you want even snorkeling. We have spent all day here and enjoyed the nice weather. Is also a nice restaurant with good views.

Where to stay in Koh Tao

The west coast offers the greatest number of accommodations on Ko Tao, with upscale resorts and affordable guesthouses sitting side by side with eco-friendly lodges and beach chalets. Down south, you'll find luxury resorts with private beaches and extensive views of the coast, while farther inland simple guesthouses and rental apartments provide the least expensive lodgings on the island.
