Create an itinerary including Ao Tanot Bay
While a bit hard to reach, the shoreline of Ao Tanot Bay rewards with a vibrant underwater scene just steps into the water. Get the most out of your visit by bringing snorkeling gear to get a close look at the coral reef near the beach. The crystal clear water makes viewing the large formations and tropical fish easy. When you get tired, rest in a nearby restaurant. Keep in mind the beach offers no shade, so consider taking an umbrella. Make Ao Tanot Bay a centerpiece of your Koh Tao vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Koh Tao day trip tool.

  • What an amazing bay. It’s a must go place for snorkeling and relax. There are also restaurants and diving centers. Easy to reach - we stayed at Coral View and arrived by motor bike in 10 min.
