The atmosphere is very relaxing. I enjoyed walking along the beach. The water is clear and the sand is white, but full of rocks. Not a very good place for swimming because the water level is too low. Still good for sunbathing. Got many nice...More

Not dreamy beach at all. Really narrow and dirty. The village itself is really busy. Spent one night in here and that was enough. Definitely head for other beaches in Koh Tao!

Impossible to swim from this beach! The water is too shallow and many boat parked. The atmosphere is not that great too with too many yelling teenagers. Quite noisy with music competition between differents bars.

For swimming this beach is almost unusable in the summer, when the tide is low all day. The beach is not very clean and often there are plastic rubbish laying around. At night it is okay as there often is some beach parties or flame...More
