Jansom Bay, Koh Tao
(3.6/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Relax on the white sand of Jansom Bay, a notable piece of shoreline in the area. Just a short walk from the main town, this attraction boasts shallow, turquoise water with no currents, so even children can swim safely here. Stretch out on the sand, go snorkeling, or explore the boulders and forest surrounding the beach. You can expect to pay a small fee to enter this privately owned beach. A visit to Jansom Bay represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Koh Tao travel itinerary planner to plot your vacation.
