The bay is really nice and the view is amazing from the bungallows. Also when the waves got stronger lots of garbage came out in early January. Maybe other parts of the year is better.

This is definitely another must to visit beach in Ko Tao ! Unfortunately was raining with strong winds when we were here but for just a while, sea appeared rough so we didn't snorkel here. 100 baht per person to access the beach is a little costly but the beach has nice loungers!

Lots of broken glass, plastic and cigarette butts. Too bad cuz it's a beautiful bay. You pay 100 THB per person to get in.

I visited Aow Leuk bay today. It had been quite some time since I last came here and a lot has changed. The once free accessed beach now has an entrance fee (for a beach) of 100 bahts per person. Maybe that would mean the people managing the place would actually use this to take better care of this possibly... More

We found Aow Leuk Bay on a list of top places to snorkel in Koh Tao - and it should be. Sadly however, the bay (as well as Shark Bay, right next to it) is FILLED with plastic bottles and plastic garbage. We had decided to swim to Shark Bay from our spot further down the beach, and from there... 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
