The road to the beach is literally missing, there are huge holes and it is quite challenging to get there. One on the beach you can’t relax as there are constructions of new hotels right on the beach. It is very noisy and dirty. I don’t know if it was due to the weather as it was raining, but the...

THE spot for a dip and a view of corals, fishes etc. Adult and kids enjoyment for sure. The beach is on full boom development so not so nice to hang around but for a day trip it's perfect. Food is decent, nothing to brag about. It is really worth the visit for longer than 10mn, take the time to... More

The scooter ride here is definitely an adventure and worth it. Best snorkelling on the island. Love it. (Food at the main restaurant is not so good - sorry).

The beach is one of the most popular one in the island with connection to Ko Ma island on low tide. There are few massage places and bars on the beach and around ... with tourist prices. The biggest attraction is the walk on narrow strip of sand connecting the island and coral reefs located on the left south west... More

Beautiful beach BUT not recommended for the next 6 months to 1 year as they are building villas right on the beach, the construction and diesel fumes carry for a long way and will bother you no matter where you are on the beach. The road is also under construction so you will have to do some serious off roading... More

Mae Haad is very nice and clean beach on Koh Tao, despite it is located very close to the peer. Pros: clear water, soft sand, nice corals, close to everything.
