FREEDOM BEACH ON KOH TAO ISLAND – THE ULTIMATE GUIDE

FREEDOM BEACH ON KOH TAO ISLAND – THE ULTIMATE GUIDE

Freedom Beach Koh Tao is my favourite beach on the island and it is rated one of the best Koh Tao beaches by locals and tourists! Freedom Beach Koh Tao is located on the south coast of the island.

HOW TO GET TO FREEDOM BEACH KOH TAO

Freedom Beach Koh Tao is a short 10-minute drive from Sairee Beach, the main tourist hub of Koh Tao. Freedom Beach has decent road access and when I visited there were no parking or entrance fees. Freedom Beach Koh Tao is a short 2-minute walk to the beach from the car park.

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.

Freedom Beach Koh Tao is one of the smaller Koh Tao beaches but the beauty and scenic vibes make up for its size. Freedom Beach is a must-see location on your list of things to do in Koh Tao! This fine white sandy beach is tucked away under a shady palm tree and mangrove jungle with some of the clearest, bluest water on the island.

A shallow reef can be found just off the shoreline at Freedom Beach Koh Tao with an abundance of corals and schools of fish which is known to be one of the best Koh Tao snorkeling spots!

FREEDOM BEACH KOH TAO

I spent an hour or so chilling in a hammock at Freedom Beach Koh Tao while sipping on a fresh coconut that I had bought from the woman working at the beachside food shack. There is also a cheap local restaurant nestled into the eastern corner of Freedom Beach which is a great spot for lunch.

Once you’ve spent some enjoyable time at Freedom Beach Koh Tao, make sure to head around the corner along the beach boardwalk to Taa Toh Beach and Chalok Baan Bay to discover some more of the best Koh Tao beaches.

You can also access the John Suwan Viewpoint (my favourite Koh Tao viewpoint) from Freedom Beach. Just make your way back to the carpark and look for the ‘viewpoint’ signs which will point you in the right direction to the start of the trail to John Suwan Viewpoint.
