After a few crazy days on other islands, this was the exact relaxing place that we needed. The water here is incredibly calm and shallow, great for a leisurely swim, snorkelling, or sitting with a cool drink.

Chalok Baan Kao Bay is extremely underrated for snorkelling. Don't expect to see much coral, as most has been killed by bleaching events. Instead, expect to see various species of parrotfish, as well as watchman gobies and pistol shrimp. You essentially have the bay to...More

We started with Freedom beach and walked over to this Bay side. Both the Freedom beach and this one is really beautiful. Good for snorkeling or just to relax and enjoy the sea.

Chalok Baan was my favorite beach in Koh Tao! It was quiet, the water was shallow and had spectacular views. We also explored the area around Chalok and came to relax after our hike to John Suwan Viewpoint. They also have restaurants and bars where...More

Really nice place to chill in the day and to enjoy the night with some live music and good mango shake.

We decided to go to Shark Bay and Chalok Beach to go snorkelling as we had read great things about the clear water and snorkelling opportunities. We enjoyed shark bay (review written) but when we got to Chalok Beach we couldn't believe it. The water...More
