Freedom Beach is the most popular small beach on the south coast of Koh Tao. It’s a very quiet and private beach with no obvious buildings apart from one wooden restaurant to the side.The beach itself has fine white sand and is fairly shaded with Pemphis Acidula trees, so it’s a great place to relax with your favourite book or to sunbathe. Freedom Beach is a scenic place and the water is often crystal clear, so a wonderful spot for swimming and snorkelling. There is a shallow coral reef not too far out and you can see Hin Taa Toh (Buddha Rock) standing out on the cape. If you swim around the cape, schools of fish can often be found due to the constant water movement here. Before reaching the cape, you will pass Taa Toh Lek Beach a tiny, isolated beach surrounded by jungle.
Don’t forget to visit the amazing mountaintop John – Suwan viewpoint nearby. It takes about 15 minutes to climb the hill. From here you can also visit a nearby beach called Taa Toh Yai by using the concrete walkway along the coast. On a low tide, you can even continue walking to Chalok Baan Kao Bay.
