We went there a couple of times to snorkel. The water were perfectly clear, and there was an abundance of many different colorful fish coming that you can see coming up to you even before you go into the water. Quiet and lovely, had a great time.

Definitely worth the extra hike to get away from the crowds and to this hidden gem. The posted signs on the way are fairly inconsistent with regard to how many minutes it takes to get there, but in all it's about a mile of walking from the main part of Koh Tao, I estimate. It was the best snorkeling I've... More

Ok, it's not easy to get here, but once you do: WOW! Decent snorkeling and outstanding views of the tropical forest behind the shore and the sea ahead of it. Probably the best views I whitenessed in Tao, definitely worth the bumpy ride and the bit you'll have to walk as the road at the end isn't good for scooters.

Really pretty and secluded beach, lovely view and much nicer than sairee beach were we staying.. There were rocks that some people were cliff diving from (about 15 meters high), great for snorkelling, loads of fish and coral. I'd recommend taking or hiring water shoes as the coral started within 10 meters of the sea and could be painful if... More

Koh Tao was a beautiful island that ended in a nightmare. My friend was one of many people murdered here. I wouldn't recommend a visit it's just not worth it. 'It won't happen to me' that's what we thought. It was a pretty island and we did are open water with crystal they were awesome but I didn't feel safe... More

We decided to park the moped at the Charm Churee Villa and walk. It took about 15 minutes to walk to Sai Nuan Beach 1. We got there early-ish (around 10:30) and there was only another family and a couple there as well. There was a little bit of trash along the shore break, but nothing extravagant. Fair amount of...

If you're looking to get away from the noise on Koh Tao, head to Sai Nuan. The beach is smaller, but much more tranquil with fewer people. There are a few rustic restaurants, and though we didn't try them, they looked pretty laid back with people hanging out and reading books. The granite boulders in the water look super cool,... More

Every day for a week ive been there just watching the sea... the water is clean as glass and the sand is thin as can be. Perfect place to do some snorkeling, recommended to go at night, and have a drink next to the water. Its a magical place.
