Koh Tao Koh Nang Yuan Surat Thani
Kok Tao is a premiere place for diving and boasts the most beautiful and fertile coral reefs in Thailand. Located next to Koh Tao is Koh Nang Yuan, the smaller of the three islands. While its dimensions may be less, its views certainly are not.
Location These islands are located in Amphoe Koh Pha-ngan in the Surat Thani Province. The majority of the area is mountainous, with the hills gently sloping into the beaches. While the island is only 3.4 by 7.6 kilometers large, the coral reef stretches for eight kilometers in front.
Despite the small size, this peanut shaped island has eleven bays and ten peninsulas. The total length of the coastline is twenty-nine kilometers. Each beach has ample accommodations for the
visitor. Among the more popular beaches are:
Had Mae Had, which is the commercial center of the island, Had Chalok Ban Kao, which is a viewpoint on the hill, Ao Thian Oft with its clean water and picturesque views, Had Sai Daeng, which in addition to its unique red-sand beaches also has excellent diving amongst the sharks, Ao Tanod where the dive school is located, and Had Sai Ri where you can enjoy the long gardens that outline the equally long beach.
Sairee's white sandy beach stretches about 1.7km over most of the west coast, interrupted only by a few huge boulders. Mae Haad is only a 10 minute walk away.
Being the most popular area on Tao, Sairee offers a wide range of accommodation, dive centers, restaurants, shops, beach bars, travel & email services, nurseries, etc.
Here, you can have the best view on Koh Nang Yuan island. A cluster of rocks called Suan Hin Jor Por Ror highlights King Rama V's inscription that he made on his visit in 1899. You will also find the Fishery Museum, and on the way to Mae Haad the police station, the public school and the local Buddhist temple.
CHALOK BAAN KAO
Third largest beach, located on the southern coast facing Koh Phangan and Koh Samui. This bay is smaller than Sairee, but offers a similar range of accommodation, eateries and nightlife.
The Last Paradise, a helicopter pad, offers a spectacular view of the bay and the surrounding beaches. Partytime is on Sat's. Chalok Baan Kao is beautifully framed by Taa Toh Lagoon to the east and Saan Jao Beach to the west. It also connects to Thian Og Bay and Sai Daeng Beach. The rock formation at cape Taa Toh resembles a sitting Buddha, this is best to be seen from the viewpoint opposite (Buddha Rock).
