Sairee Beach, Koh Tao

Sairee Beach is the longest beach on Koh Tao and stretches 1.85 km up the west coast. It’s the most popular and busiest beach on Koh Tao and the surrounding area offers a wide range and variety of accommodation, dive centres, restaurants, bars, cafes, shops and lots of nightlife.

Sairee Beach is a great place to spend the day topping up your tan, or, if you are feeling energetic, a game of beach volleyball, frisbee or football. There is also a coral reef just 30 metres from the shore for a spot of snorkelling, and with lots of sand and shallow water, Sairee Beach is ideal for families with children. In the evening, relax with a sunset drink and watch the world go by.

Laem Jor Por Ror

This area is a cape at the south end of Sairee Beach, from where you get a great view of the whole of the beach and Koh Nang Yuan in the background. It is famous for the large boulder inscribed with the initials of His Majesty the King Chulalongkorn – Rama V which were carved during his visit to Koh Tao in 1899. There is also a statue of His Majesty. A quiet spot with lots of half submerged rocks creating a scenic silhouette at sunset.
