If you come to Koh Tao to snorkel, do not deadlock on Mango Bay. This Bay is in the top 3 Koh Tao snorkelling spots (may well be number 1 for my liking), this was a blow: accessibility. By road, Mango is probably the Bay the harder to reach in all Koh Tao scooter, but it is possible for the reckless. Almost non-existent paved section, dirt road, it up, and it's down... especially on arrival!

Located just north of Koh Tao We go there by the road in the same way that you are going to Hin Wong Bay. Except that it does not turn to Hin Wong. Then it is all right. It cannot be mistaken. Take one of the free maps available across on-site and luck for the road. In addition to being difficultthe path is enough long ; so even on foot you'll suffer. But what satisfaction to the arrived!

As with all easily accessible bays of Koh Tao you have the option of the 4 x 4 taxi or boat taxi. Boat taxi cost you hardly less 400THB per person for a round trip to Sairee Beach. It's expensive, but it's beautiful. Economically the solution the cheaper to go it is likely to do so in a snorkelling trip Autour Island to cushion the costs by visiting other bays at the same time, or stay the night here.

Surrounded by mainly of Rock with a small beach a few tens of metres where come land taxi boat and speed boat passages, berries, Mango contains under these transparent waters to the turquoise reflections, a large quantity of tropical fish who do not hesitate to approach you as soon as you have the feet in the water. Strange behaviour, they try also may be of Chew you. Strange that step. Here (in Koh Tao) practical local "feeding": they feed the fish to attract to the delighted tourists. Fish in the corner will therefore not have fear of you and "see" your provider of food. I do not know personally the negative effects term feeding, but after have discuss with of many professional diver (who are mostly against the feeding), I have the idea that it is better avoid to guide the behavior of nature, this could change some instincts. I let you judge while inviting you to inform you of advantage on this for form you your opinion. I say: not to the feeding because what I am interested is to observe fish with their natural behaviour. If you are lucky like us, you will also find a beautiful size shell (see photo). Get out to take a picture if you want to but do not keep them with you.

Let's talk about of the influx of the berries. Berries, mango is its reputation mainly through snorkelling. The day will be in the berries of the dive boats (Mango Bay is also a diving spot), of the people who come here a snorkelling tour, and the bigger boats that also here specially come snorkelling with groups. On the whole it is going well. Round trips are not constant as one might fear, and it's not all day not more.

Mango Bay is a quiet corner except at certain times of the day where it is will be more crossing.

The jurisdiction overlooking Mango Bay is the AO Muong Resort (which means Mango Bay Resort in Thai). Hanging rock and giving on the beach after a few steps, their building overlooking the Bay and the beach. Above after having mounted a lot of steps, found other bungalows of the same jurisdiction (with also a beautiful view of the sea) and a restaurant. Outstanding view.
It regrets that the spring invoice 50THB by visitor to take a shower after swimming.

2/3 Negative points is there background We definitely like Mango BayIt must go. Spend the night is may not be a good idea if you want to go out at night (hard to get out of here). There is also no convenience store. In any event, do not leave Koh Tao without be spent here!

Positive points: snorkelling, view, quiet.
Negative points: small beach, stores and social life, difficulties of access.
