  • I was there only to dive in Japanese garden and even snorkeled to the beach. The 20 min there have enough for me. For that, it was good, I would want to do more.

  • It's a beautiful place but the charging for maintained is bs. They tell you not to put towels down because they collect too much sand but tourist everywhere laying their towel down. Idk what everyone ...  read more »
  • We are with the taxi boat to the island. It is a beautiful island with a very nice view. We have visited the island 3 hours. Very busy with other tourists who come here snorkeling. You pay 100 bath per person to come and 150 bath for a bed that you "should" hire, because on a towel lying on the beach is not allowed. It is worth to the view point to go and to go snorkeling, beautiful fish. Only at one point very busy with tourists (Yes that's us of course, but they arrive in large groups). In short, fun island for a few hours.

  • 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
  • Beautiful and playful. Come here with tour. Nice beach and mountain
  • great island, unfortunately everyone seems to know that. there are so many people on this small island. but still worth a visit. go hike up to the scenic point, it has an amazing view!!
