Peaceful white sand beach with a difficult approach.

The beach is very peaceful with good snorkeling on the left (facing the bay) where the corals start pretty close to the shore. It has a sandy bottom but watch out for the waves... read more

Following recommendation we thought it'd be nice to drop by for some snorkeling. When I got into the water there was trash for about 20meters and then when I swam over it there wasn't much to see but sand. We left the beach after 15 minutes as it was so disgusting. While it doesn't seem like the trash originates from... More

We went to this beach especially, because it was recommended as the most beautiful beach to snorkel in Ko Tao. So we agreed to take a taxi and pay the 100 baht per person entrance. We entered and the water were just unbearable, all full of trash and no visibility. Maybe it was something with the weather, and sometimes it's... More

Went there with my friends, they took 100bht entrance and after we passed the gate we found the water and beach contaminated with garbage. You would have thought that a beach that costs money should be vlean and preserved. After 15 minutes we asked for a refund but we were apathicly refused. Don't go there. Tanote beach just couple of... More

The beach is very peaceful with good snorkeling on the left (facing the bay) where the corals start pretty close to the shore. It has a sandy bottom but watch out for the waves. Couple of resorts which allow you beach access but charge a fee of 100 bht. Its worth it as you get a free soft drink and... More

You must go here. Seriously incredible. Breath taking! It costs 50 baht per person to go but the beach is kept really clean. There are sun lounges and little huts. You can buy drinks for a mini canteen there too.

Beautiful quiet beach, the see is beautiful and colorful, and the world under water is absolutely stunning. You don't even need to get to the water to realize that. The big fish can be see from above water. Fish packs will welcome you when you enter the water. Snorkeling is the best experience, the so many colors, and so close!... More

Stayed at Grand Hill resort...pricier than normal but worth it for the location. Very calm apart from the visiting dive boats. Incredibly clear snorkelling and lots to see, even a reef shark and enormous Titan Trigger fish.....wonderful. So much better than west side of island. Pity about the rip off taxi rates to get there.

Of all the beaches we tried on Koh Tao, this was by far the best for snorkelling. The cost to enter the beach is 100 baht per person, but it's worth it. If you intend to snorkel, I highly recommend heading to the left side of the beach (when facing the sea) and just swimming out by the rocks as... More
