  • Very beautiful spot - but make sure to arrive early since the island is very crowded in the afternoons.  more »
  • We went to these two "twin Islands" with the Taxiboat! We were a group of 6 people and have paid therefore 250 baht! As a couple you would pay around the 2000 baht, therefore is advisable if you want cheap come on the Islands to drive in a larger group! The admission on the Islands is 100 baht per person and two chairs with umbrella 150 baht for the whole day! The water is turquoise and beautiful! Beautiful also the snorkeling! The food is not the best, but tastes quite alright, the beer is twice as expensive as in other restaurants, but you can also treat yourself! We have spent a wonderful day there and made a super cool photos! Is only to recommend!

  • It cost us 250 baht each to take a longboat from Koh Tao, then 100 baht for entrance to the island. If you want to use their beach chairs it's 150 baht each. The island is beautiful and the viewpoint ...  more »

  • The island is busy, and the rules are ridiculous. It's all about the MONEYYY. First of all, they charge you 100THB per person to enter. Now, if they were using this money to clean or create awareness or increase services...then maybe I'd be okay with it. But they aren't. They say "No Plastic" and take away all bottles at the entry (they even tried to take away our refillable bottles that we use to REDUCE SINGLE USE PLASTIC WASTE. That made me angry. On top of that, every person on the tour boats get silly little plastic waterbottles that get confiscated...and then end up staying on the island. The most ridiculous thing, is that there's a restaurant there, and they serve DRINKS, and every single one of those drinks comes with 2 PLASTIC STRAWS. And guess where all of those drinks end up? THE BEACH! Am I the only one who thinks this is crazy? Wait...it gets better! When everyone leaves back to their tour boats...they leave their drinks and plastic waste in the sand! I went to clean some up before leaving....and there are NO PUBLIC RUBBISH BINS. None. So I had to take it all up to the restaurant where they looked at me like I was insane. Be aware, they have a NO TOWEL policy for the beach. Because it takes sand away....Yeah. For real. Don't bother going. It's a massive Tourist Trap and there is cheaper beaches, better swimming, and nicer snorkelling on the Main Island.
  • It's a commercial island.!I'm here right now with friends and the locals charge for everything that you can use. The entrance is 100baht, you are not allowed to entry with can or any kind of plastic bottle, is prohibited put towels on the sand and with you want to seat is 150baht for two chairs! For use a simple shower 50baht. Terrible, unfortunately because it's a paradise, amazing water and good to do snorkelling and go to the view point.
  • Amazing snorkeling location. The most beautiful fishes I've ever seen so close from the shore (at the North West part of the beach). The island can be pretty busy so get there really early or around 4 with a taxi boat to avoid the big crowds. There's a 100 baht fee to enter the island, and you can't last on the beach on a towel. You have to pay for a beach chair. There's a view point in the southern part of the island that is nice. If you don't plan on snorkeling I would suggest going somewhere else as the beach is not that great, it's covered in coral and it's kind of painful to walk on.
  • Whether you want to hang on the beach, snorkel, or take a short hike to an extravagant view, Koh Nang Yuan will meet your needs. The hike was hot but not too long and relatively easy (one boulder at the top to climb). The scene was so overwhelmingly beautiful I found myself weak in only one knee, unable to prevent myself from professing my undying love to my now fiancé. I proposed on this island and highly recommend it. 5 stars as she said yes.
  • Amazing place. Besides the breathe taking viewpoint, astonishing fish and corals. Probably the most beautiful place I've been to
