Rocky Bay, Koh Tao

(4.1/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Rocky Bay a part of your Koh Tao vacation plans using our Koh Tao trip itinerary builder.

  • The beach though tucked away behind a resort, but you can just go to the misses or go too. The gate will likely deter most people, but for white beach and blue water's worth. Now you must go just the way after all the way down. Simply go to the reception by, quietly follow the signs to the beach bar. Or going directly towards Beach. Actually want the resort 100 baht per visitor, who does not live in the hotel, have. But simply by going no one cares there. What can be there at the bar or restaurant, we brought everything itself but always us. There are trees where are well protected in the shade can be put anywhere. This beach has been never full when we were there. For the relax and swim ideal!

  • difficult to access, hard to find it, ideal to go on bike and spend the day visiting different beaches in the area

  • A beautiful sandy beach to relax from the hustle and bustle of Sairee beach escape. Beautiful clear water on the beach with wonderful restaurants and bars.
