HIN WONG BEACH ON KOH TAO ISLAND – THAILAND

HIN WONG BEACH ON KOH TAO ISLAND – THAILAND

Hin Wong Bay on Koh Tao Island is a beautiful beach surrounded by large boulders and crystal clear waters, offering one of the best Koh Tao snorkeling spots. I perused my Koh Tao map in search of a beach away from the more popular Koh Tao beaches and I discovered Ao Hin Wong Beach on the eastern coastline of Koh Tao.

HOW TO GET TO HIN WONG BAY

Hin Wong Bay is a short 10-minute drive from Sairee Beach, the main tourist hub of Koh Tao. Hin Wong Bay is very easy to access as the main road leads all the way down to Ao Hin Wong Beach and there is a small carpark at the bottom. There are no parking or entrance fees at Hin Wong Bay and it is a short 2-minute walk 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.

HIN WONG BAY KOH TAO

When I arrived at Hin Wong Bay the first thing I did was traverse across the large boulders that lined the southern end of Ao Hin Wong Beach to see what I could find. Apart from a local fisherman on the rocks trying to catch his lunch, there wasn’t much to do at this end of the beach and I couldn’t go much further across the boulders as it was more difficult than what I had intended.

I headed back along the trail between the palm trees to the north end of Hin Wong Bay and found a beautiful patch of sand to perch up and go for a quick swim. I was surprised to see no more than 10 people down on Ao Hin Wong Beach knowing that there were thousands of tourists on Koh Tao during this holiday season.

If you’re looking for a quiet beach away from crowds and one of the best Koh Tao snorkeling spots, head to the east side of Koh Tao Island and discover the beauty of Hin Wong Bay, where the jungle meets the sea.

    Hey Johhny,
    A big hello from India! Loved your travel stories. I am planning a Thailand trip between 4th-12th October and looking forward to visit Koh Phangan, Koh Tao and Koh Samui. Need your advice and if these places are worthy enough for my 9 day-trip.

    Keep inspiring us to see the world 🙂

    Cheers
    Ann
