Taa Toh Bay is a magnificent cove hidden under a palm-fringed forest on the south coast of Koh Tao Island. Taatoh Bay is the ultimate spot to relax on the beach for some peace and quiet away from the more popular Koh Tao attractions.

 

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 TAA TOH BAY

Taa Toh Bay a 15-minute drive from Sairee Beach, the main tourist hub of Koh Tao.

Taa Toh Bay has decent road access and when I visited there were no parking or entrance fees. Taatoh Bay 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.

TAA TOH BAY

Taa Toh Bay was the last stop of the day on my beach hopping adventures around the south coast of Koh Tao. I made it to Taa Toh Bay at around 5pm to do some exploring and then caught an unforgettable sunset at the beach.

I could have easily spent an entire day at Taa Toh Bay. There is so much to do including beach bumming, snorkeling, kayaking, beach volleyball, hiking and hammock chills!

When I visited Taa Toh Bay there were only four other people on the beach, which surprised me as it was peak season on Koh Tao. So if you’re looking for one of the best Koh Tao beaches to have all to yourself, then look no further!
