Spectacular beaches in Koh Tao

The beaches around the island are some of the finest in the south, particularly Haad Thien (Rocky Bay), Tanote Bay and Sairee Beach. 
Sairee Beach is perhaps the most well-known of Koh Tao's beaches and is busy with beach bars, nightspots and excellent restaurants. Meanwhile, Chalok Ban Khao is located on the southern tip of the island, a picturesque stretch of golden sand and not as busy as Sairee. Hop on a Longtail boat to be ferried around the waters here. 
Haad Thien is without question Tao's best beach. More commonly referred to as Rocky Bay, here you will find clear waters and beaches lined with coconut palms and a beach which is blissfully uncrowded due to its distance from the main town.
