Map of Koh Tao idendity

  • The North, East and Southwest
    The West and South

  • The North, East and Southwest

  • Area concerned: Mango bay, Tanote,. Ao Leuk, Hin Wong Bay and Sai Daeng Beach, June Juea Beach, Cape Jeda Gang, Sai Nuan
    The East Coast (right for you) North (up to you) and Southwest
    are beautiful parts of Koh Tao, not too populated (see almost deserted for some) with awesome and good snorkelling spot. That said, there is a flip side to this medal. These areas of Koh Tao are hard to access (bad roads) and from stores and local life. The taxi or taxi boat to go and to go are pretty in (minimum 300THB between the port and some destinations on the East Coast).
    If you want to stay in this part of the island, you will have then two solutions to move there and until then:
    -Be pay a taxi for each trip,
    - Either move you in Scooter or quad (see the section) Getting around Koh Tao),
    - Or spend most of your time on the same beach / bay.

    This can become a problem For families staying there but also want to visit the island (mobility)

    People who look for peace may choose those parts of the island (with fear that other parts of the island is crowded). But attention to the effect reverses. Sometimes after a while, some end up feeling too dependent on taxis, not mobile enough, and eventually move to court to get stay in an area more accessible and "move" more

    That being said it is perfectly possible to spend a pleasant stay in these areas. It will just live with these few constraints. See for yourself!
    In detail, these areas hard to access are: Mango Bay Tanote, Ao Leuk, Hin Wong Bay and Sai Daeng Beach, June Juea Beach, Cape Jeda Gang, Sai Nuan. Note that Shark Bay happening again
    You are advised to see Ao Leuk or Tanote? Know that nothing prevents you to visit these corners not living, you are the board itself. Also, if you exclude areas hard to access, all is not lost. You throughout the South and West of Koh Tao and you can visit the North East and piecemeal. In doing so you will visit Koh Tao wider and especially you will feel more free to move
    Also, you have very little choice of hotel / guest house / resort to reside in areas hard to access, often two springs up to take advantage of competition

  • The West and South

  • These areas are easily accessible by road. You can choose between Shark Bay, Freedom Beach, Chalook Bay, Jansom Bay, Mae Haad Bay, and Sairee Beach. Note that it may reside in Koh Nang Yuan (the small island in top left) but it is expensive and we go to Nangyuan a half day for a simple visit. More detail on each of these beaches you in the section "Beach and Bay of Koh Tao", will therefore not repeat here.

  • Exception that proves the rule

  • Make an exception : If you control the scooterthen the island belongs to you and stay where you want because in any event you will be able to move where you want to. Still think that sometimes you have to return at night on a road gradient and not informed. In any case you are warned.

    It should be noted that the Active Centre is based on Sairee. There is always something that moves is low but night holiday near the beach may want of to in ecarte a little for his summer home.

Hi, I'm looking for a guest house on the beach... with pool, air-con... and not too far from the diving club... and obviously not too expensive... in short the super combo... an idea?

Thanks in advance.
