One of the main draws here is the blacktip reef shark sightings. These friendly creatures hunt for their prey in the shallow areas of the beach, making it easy to see them even if you’re just snorkelling. The crystal clear waters are known for excellent visibility; you’ll also get to see turtles and colourful corals all over.

Travellers love relaxing in the white sand beach framed by lush, emerald green landscapes. There are fewer accommodation choices and establishments here, so if you are looking for a quiet time, this is the place to be. However, if you require modern conveniences such as shops and restaurants, these can all be found nearby. Several hotels and resorts are available for those who want to stay in this beautiful part of Koh Tao.

If you enjoy the nightlife, you’re in luck. There are several bars and clubs found all over; you can choose from elegant bars with happy hours or even participate in the parties that go on until the early morning.

When it comes to activities on Haad Tien Beach, the choices are endless. The terrific marine life here makes it the best place to get your dive license, or perhaps join in a few diving tours.

Explore the nearby beaches by going on a full-day island hopping tour; these are affordable and friendly tour guides take you to the most beautiful spots in the region. Koh Tao features numerous parks and natural attractions that are worthy of visiting, such as Laem Thian, Koh Nang Yuan, Aow Leuk Bay, and much more. Everything you need can be found here; from bicycle and motorcycle rentals, to water sports equipment.
