  • We have been for 4 months on a trip to Asia, have seen a lot and often bad restaurants and hotels. I've been now extra an account for this beach! The beach is 100 Baht admission if you then a beautiful beach gets for this magical underwater world, no problem. The beach looks like everyone else also, natural white sand, rather coarse, the water itself are many extremely sharp stones and thousands of dead coral. The water is cloudy! On the whole island, the sea is crystal clear, but it is so murky that you could see at all nichts(!) on this beach. You should extremely far out swim to see observe any something, but not a single person was seen in deep water... Walking along the beach, you stumble over tons of trash. Maybe nothing out of the ordinary if you know beaches in Cambodia, etc, but for a private resort, admission requires a nerve! All other beaches on Koh Tao are soo much nicer and cleaner. After 15 minutes sounded and insanely mad stood on the beach and desperately searched for fish between the garbage bags, I decided to complain. The woman knew directly what is going on. I'm 100% sure that many complain and want their money back. "We dont refund" she said. PS. I'm one of the people who discreetly grabs a hair in the food aside and thanked the Barber in an apparently unsuccessful hairstyle... not good, I can criticize, but here I was really mad and sad.
