Koh Nang Yuan, Koh Tao

3.7
#1 of 18 in Parks in Koh Tao
Snorkel and dive among the teeming coral reefs at Koh Nang Yuan, a privately owned island. A diving instructor teaches beginners and provides refresher courses for those who haven't dived in a while. After working up an appetite swimming, dine at the island's restaurant, or enjoy a drink or two at the beach bar. Climb to the top of the densely forested hill via a well built trail for panoramic views of the island and nearby Ko Tao.

  • I visited this island 6 years ago and the difference that time can make! The whole place was totally packed, every inch of sand covered...no chance of getting any photos without at least 20 other peop...  more »
  • Without doubt the best spent outside, on the island of Koh Tao. Despite having few restaurant options, the beach is worth is a ride that can only be done on Koh Tao.

  • This place is incredible and should definitely be seen if your nearby. It is very crowded but empties out around 4:30 as you have to be off by 5:30. The viewpoint only takes 10 minutes to get up there but is also very crowded on a rather small rock
  • Beautiful island very close to Koh Tao, snorkeling here is a dream, many colored little fish and beautiful coral. The water has a wonderful color. You can walk around the island on a wooden path and also reach a viewpoint after an easy climb. The island can get crowded with tourists. If you visit the island I implore you to don't throw anything in the water or on the sand especially plastic.
  • Disgusting horrible place. Litter everywhere. On land it’s grossly overpriced (50Thb to use a shower and 150Thb to sit in a chair plus 100Thb just to get onto this rubbish tip). Worse underwater. Dead coral wasteland covered in plastic pollution. Mankind should be ashamed!
  • This place so beautiful for scene but loose if compare to Lipe Island ,even though Talu Island in PrajuobKereeKhan Province.
  • Movie esque blue waters. The clearest waters I have ever seen. Superb spot for snorkeling

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.
