Koh Tao is a beautiful island of just 21 square kilometres, it is located about 70 km north of Koh Samui and it is far an hour and 30 minutes by speedboat.
Koh Tao & Koh Nang Yuan have many good sites for snorkelling and scuba diving, with hard and soft corals, clear water and a wide diversity of marine life.
The location of Koh Tao, away from the mainland and surrounded by deeper sea make this place privileged to have the best underwater visibility of the Gulf of Thailand.
To get the best terms available, the snorkeling spots of Koh Tao vary depending on the time and tides.
Usually we can visit the southern and western sides of the island in the period from October to March, from April to September we tend to visit the northern and eastern coasts of Koh Tao, which are characterized by beautiful bays and tropical rainforest. Changing snorkeling sites, change also the place where we will stop to eat. From October to March, you can dine along Sairee Beach. From April to September instead we can seat in a charming restaurant in Hin Wong. After lunch you can go to snorkel, or more adventurous , you can jump from a boulder 5 mt. high.
Koh Nang Yuan is easy to spot because consists of three small rocky islands connected by a sandbar. It has some of the best snorkeling and diving sites in Thailand and with a variety of marine life large and colorful and shallow depths, and ideal for underwater photography. Koh Nang Yuan also has a fantastic vantage point where you see the whole island and also Koh Tao and you can reach with a walk of about 45 minutes to take some pictures. Between the two beaches of connection, there is a bar for those who want a cocktail or a fruit smoothie by the sea.
