We annually visit this little gem when we get friends. It can be accessed by longtail boat from Tong Krut on Koh Samui. Small restaurants and great snorkeling spots.

I guess this is the most relaxing beach in Samui. When there are hundreds of people in Chaweng beach, in Koh Tan only around 20. You can't find much there for fun. Just lay down and enjoy the sun.

Have dived there twice over the two years I have come to stay at Samui. Each time it was a breath of fresh air, water warm and clear. An hour trip but worth the time but always great company

We had a boat out for the day and the kids and i loved the snorkeling! The water is just so blue that you don't want to leave!

We were here for snorkeling. Not that much boots loke at Ko Tao. Water for rain season quite clear. Some of the typical fishes.

Many popular tours of Koh Samui will include this island spot for quiet relaxation, snorkerling, swimming or just lying in the warm sun. Can travel on both slow or speed boat for a day outing

Book a private boat and jump into the water for snorkel, if you are lucky you could see sting ray , that was the highlight of my snorkelling .

We joined a tour at a good rate. The speedboat is much more stable than I have imagined. The crews on the boat are helpful. The island is a worth to visit point for snorkelling. The beach is not big but the sand is soft.

We love to go there. It is 20-30 minutes away from Koh Samui, but amazing how the sea changes. So many fish. Great place to snorkel. Also not expensive.

Went there on a snorkelling boat trip and it's a tiny remote island, set off Koh Samui. Very remote with a little bar and Pancake hut. Beautiful views and clear water
