Rocky Bay, Koh Tao

4.2
#7 of 8 in Beaches in Koh Tao
Lined with coconut palms and offering interesting underwater sights, Rocky Bay draws visitors to explore the marine environment. Bring your snorkeling gear for the chance to see attractive coral formations, turtles, and black-tip sharks, as the water boasts great visibility. Or sit on the rocks in the quiet bay, looking back at the lush, green landscape of the main island. Lacking the amenities of other beaches in the area, the focus here is on relaxation and gentle exploration of the sea, rather than water sports and entertainment. Plan my Koh Tao trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • This is a beach where you must have been if you are on koh tao. Beautiful blue sea and mega white beach. You paid though 100 bath per person allowed to the beach and the food and drinks is a lot more expensive than on other beaches. The beach is really a must!

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.
