Sai Nuan Beach, Koh Tao

4.5
#2 of 8 in Beaches in Koh Tao
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.

    Not simple access for arrival on the beach, we put an hour.. .to walk, but it was worth it. Not much world and the water is clear with many colourful fish. Not need to go far, with a mask and snorkel you will see a 1 meter from the edge of the fabulous fish, you will have the feeling of swimming in an aquarium, the top. You can access: walk but I would not recommend because it rises, scooter carefully high road, or taxi

    Best beach we did. We arrived by taxi boat 15 minutes from the beach of sairee arriving she wonder to see such a place with anyone of coconut trees to shade a limpid water of the beautiful fish. A Council preferred this beach to nanyuang Island why: far too many people get there early 10: 00 (opening the window) and especially from a certain time of the whole Japanese ships arrive. I recommend this wonderful place

    Small beach reachable after 20 min walk from Mae Haad Pier through some resorts (so only walk). The sea bed doesn't offer much for snorkeling, the coral here is almost all dead but you can see a lot of little fishes. The morning we arrived we found the beach and the water in front all littered with plastic bags and bottles, I started collecting the plastic and then other followed, in 20 min the beach and the water were clean again. With a little effort we can do it!!!

    Sai Nuan is composed of two beaches. The first one is small but very nice with a pond, grass a bit everywhere and a lot of flowers. The second one is very small but nice too. Snorkeling here is not interesting at at all. There is a very good restaurant on sai nuan beach 1 named "... Cookies", I strongly recommend this restaurant as it is excellent and probably the cheapest on the whole island.
