Walked from Sairee beach to Mae Haad Pier, then a back route through the hotels and bungalows to Sai Nuan Beach - took 1 hour and was 5k. Got bitten alive through the back route so be prepared. 100% worth it though. Amazing secluded beach, quiet, good snorkelling, shallow, cheap food and restaurant nearby. Had to return to Sairee beach... More

By far the best beach in the area. Relaxing, clean, and the currents are not that strong. Plenty of things to do around the area to keep yourself busy if you are bored of being on the beach all day.

We walked to this beach from the Tarne aligned hotel, which is 15 minutes away from sairee beach. Most of the walk was along the coast through the towns, so quite a bit of possibility to stop and have a drink. From the bamboo huts it was 20 minutes, through the hills. The way was quite steep at times, but... More

it takes 30-ish minutes to walk/hike from Mae Haad pier to here. Need to pass some resorts and bungalows first. The beach is small, basically just the same as the picture.This beach is more quiet compared to others. Don't come when it is hide-tide, there is no place to sit, everything is covered by water. Easy and large area for... More

If you fancy a long walk from Sairee Beach, then you will find Sai Nuan Beach. We loved this side of the island, as Sairee, where we are staying seems a bit more full on. Its much more Thai along here, with all the little stalls and shops you can walk through to get there. get to the beach and... More

Have visited many beaches during our week stay in Ko Tao, the best in my list next to Nang Yuan island. Secluded tiny, it gives you the feel of a private beach. Very calm Crystal clear water, lots of beautiful fishes, perfect place for snorkel ! Can't wait to go back !! PS/ easier to get there with a bike

This is a lovely small beach, inaccessible directly by road. Unfortunately now there are many boats taking day trippers to the beach and when I last went it was quite busy. There is a reef off the beach that makes it a nice place to snorkel but mind the boats. Walk over to Banana Rock Bar for better snorkelling in... More
