Hin Wong Bay, found on Koh Tao’s eastern coast, is a beautiful 15-meter beach framed by giant boulders.
The bay offers plenty of activities for travellers looking for either relaxation or water activities. However, it’s best known for its vibrant aquatic life and excellent snorkelling.

Aside from snorkelling, the area is also a prime diving spot for all ages. Whether you are a seasoned diver or would like to take your first diving lessons, you can do so here as well.
The many boulders and rock formations can make it challenging to get around. The best way to do so is by renting a kayak, which makes it much easier to get from one point to another. The beach has a few bungalows, apartments and different accommodation options in a peaceful, laid back location; all of which offer breathtaking panoramic views. They also feature restaurants facing the water; serving fresh seafood and Thai cuisine at affordable prices.
You are ensured tranquillity because it’s also one of the most remote area in Koh Tao, which is why it’s the preferred destination for many travellers who come to revel in the unadulterated isolation. There is not much to do here except relax and enjoy the company of your friends – that is, if you aren’t underwater. Bring a good book and chill in a hammock while taking in the sea views and cool tropical breeze.
Overall, Hin Wong Bay promises a more idyllic relaxation area especially for travellers who want to get away from the island’s more hectic areas. Calm waters, quiet surrounds, and a comforting vibe are what you’ll find here.
