WHAT TO EXPECT AT SAI DAENG BEACH

I stayed at the Sai Daeng Resort for 3 days and 3 nights and was lucky enough to visit Sai Daeng Beach every morning for a swim and snorkel. Some of the clearest, turquoise waters can be found here at Sai Daeng Beach and colourful coral reefs are only a stone’s throw away from the palm tree fringed shoreline.

Sai Daeng Beach is the closest bay to Shark Island, the best Koh Tao snorkeling spot on the island. There are kayaks and snorkel sets available to rent from the restaurant located down on Sai Daeng Beach. Paddling out to Shark Island Koh Tao in a kayak takes approximately 10-minutes and there is a floating buoy to tie off your kayak before jumping in the water for a snorkel.
