Sai Nuan Beach, Koh Tao
(4.6/5 based on 260+ 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.

  • In itself a nice beach, you can see many fish and crabs in the water, even with the naked eye, as the sea is very clear. Two swings leave still paradisiacal beach. It is also quite small, but enough space and fine sand to the lay down. We were here first as a Quartet, in the course of the afternoon came yet another six people, then it was almost too full. Now for the "but". The garbage. In the water floats and plastic/packaging, etc. That's too bad, because it destroys the entire flair. Generally Koh is dirty Tao very and full of plastic rubbish. So much that was not aware of us in whole Thailand. Several beaches have visited, and the waste is inevitable. Da z.B Koh Phangan (nearby island) has to offer cleaner beaches. Also, there are tons of construction sites and poor roads. We stay only because of the underwater world to the dive / snorkel here. But I think it will deteriorate due to the massive tourism (and we are just in the low season here).
