Koh Tan, Ko Samui

4.2
#4 of 13 in Nature in Ko Samui
Due to the hard-to-reach location of Koh Tan, the island boasts modest tourism, ample beaches, and blue water. Coral reefs surround the island and host a large range of marine life, so take your snorkeling gear. Also hire a bike, explore the island's paths, and find the mangrove forest on the southwest coast. You can get to this attraction by boat, usually hired from one of the nearby fishing villages. Make Koh Tan a centerpiece of your Taling Ngam vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Taling Ngam road trip app.

  • Delightful Island that can be reached on a day trip longtail boat from Thong Krut pier in Taling Ngam village (Ban Thong Krut) for 2000baht for a 4-5 hours rent. The boat can bring over 10+ people and will stop at Koh Tean for some snorkeling too. They provide snorkeling equipment and water. They sell beer but it's expensive so bring your own with ice to chill their cooler boxes. These islands have really nice views, beaches and clear waters, it's definitely worth it. The sea can be rough on windy days so either plan with wind or bring medecine if you are sensitive to seasickness.
  • Great and wonderfull snorkeling area.. Not so crowded by big tourist boats. From the boat it's easy to swim near to the coral reef.. Bring bread so you can feed the fishes and take great underwater pictures
