    Ballad very nice and view even more magnificent sea by boat, the coast is easy to access, swimming is mandatory!

    Beach not very easy to reach. Admission is 100 bth (but what am I? €2.5 then nothing!) There are few sunshade and deck chairs so I suggest you get there early. There is also a shower to wash the saltiness. Unlike other beaches there is a bit of coral sand first so you can get a bath. The restaurant is not evil (ELVIS BAR) we ventured even a Pizza and it was not bad. More photos can be found on my profile instagram @ilmatteos Thanks

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.
