Koh Tao's best hideaway

Lang Khai Bay, Koh Tao

Lang Khai actually consists of two bays: Lang Khai Bay itself and the smaller Lad Bay. Together, they form one of the best lesser-known snorkeling points of Koh Tao.

Diving Lang Khai Bay, Koh Tao
Lang Khai Bay features a small beach nestled within a valley between two high hills. Numerous large boulders extend from the shoreline into the ocean, adorned with anemones and hard coral that provide habitat for various marine life, including giant groupers, blacktip reef sharks, and hawksbill turtles. The best snorkeling point lies on the north side, where the seafloor steepens at depths ranging from 5 to 23 meters. Moreover, freedivers or experienced snorkelers may wish to explore the three ‘cracks,’ which are half-submerged caverns, each approximately 2-3 meters wide and 10 meters long. One of these also features a tiny beach at its end, although accessibility also depends on the tide. This area is also famous for bouldering sport.

At Lad Bay, the Moondance Magic View Resort sits at the end of the road, perched on a cliff. It offers a beautiful viewpoint and an accessible walkway down to a stunning snorkeling point and a small scuba diving site of Koh Tao known as King Kong Rock. Here, the magnificent harp coral can be found starting from depths of 12 meters.
