Chalok Baan Kao Bay is one of the biggest and best Koh Tao beaches, perfect for an entire day of exploring and beach bumming. Chalok Bay Koh Tao can be found on the southern coastline of the island.

 

Have you got travel insurance for Thailand? I know that nobody likes to talk about this stuff but accidents can happen and having World Nomads Insurance can save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong. 

 

HOW TO GET TO CHALOK BAAN KAO BAY

Chalok Bay Koh Tao is a short 10-minute drive from Sairee Beach, the main tourist hub of Koh Tao.

Chalok Baan Kao Bay has great road access and parking spots are available all along the beach.

There are no parking or entrance fees at Chalok Baan Kao Bay and it is a stone’s throw from the road to the beach.

The best way to get around Koh Tao is to rent a scooter for 150 Baht per day to explore all four corners of the island. There are dozens of scooter rental stores in and around town and most accommodations offer scooter rentals too.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT CHALOK BAAN KOH BAY

I visited Chalok Beach Koh Tao at around 4pm in the afternoon and the long white sand beach was practically empty.

There are a number of beach bars, bean bags and restaurants along the Chalok Baan Kao Beach where you can enjoy some afternoon drinks at sunset.

I explored Chalok Baan Kao Bay from one end to the other, stopping numerous times to take photos of the palm trees and the boats bobbing around in the shallow waters.

Chalok Baan Kao is definitely one of the quieter Koh Tao beaches and with the convenience of food and beverage options right there too.

Make sure to head east from Chalok Baan Kao Bay along the beach boardwalk to Taa Toh Beach, Freedom Beach and John Suwan Viewpoint, more of the best Koh Tao beaches and viewpoints to be explored!
