Sai Nuan Beach, Koh Tao

(4.6/5 based on 300 reviews on the web)
Small and unassuming, Sai Nuan Beach remains a secluded gem, with golden sand, turquoise water, and lush exotic trees. A picturesque wooden swing sways lightly in the breeze, dangling from the canopy above. Bring your snorkeling gear to explore swimming holes filled with colorful schools of fish. A few little huts stacked on the rocks nearby offer inexpensive drinks and a casual atmosphere. Pack sunscreen and a camera, and prepare to enjoy the views and solitude. Make Sai Nuan Beach a centerpiece of your Koh Tao vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Koh Tao family vacation planner.

  • We walked to this beach from the Tarne aligned hotel, which is 15 minutes away from sairee beach. Most of the walk was along the coast through the towns, so quite a bit of possibility to stop and have...  more »
  • We arrived on this beach for snorkeling and was disappointed. Its proximity to shark island allowed me to see the small black tip sharks twice! It's a giant aquarium we could see a variety of fish and marine background less damaged than on other beaches! We even missed a few sea turtle... this beach is the best in my eyes to see all marine wildlife at their own pace. During our stay we went back on this 4 times because no other even paid beaches was also convenient... little more restaurant on the beach rents everything from snorkeling and even the kayak.
