  • Overview & Itinerary

    Overview

    Koh Tao is also known as the turtle island as its shape resembles one. Koh Tao's little sister island, Koh Nangyuan, is a private island that consists of three smaller islands connected together by a beautiful sandbank. Together, these islands form four bays with crystal-clear water, white sandy beaches and amazing coral reefs that offer optimal conditions for snorkelling.

    Snorkel or scuba dive in the aquamarine waters and explore the colourful coral formation. Koh Nang Yuan is the ideal place for snorkelling with its underwater cliffs, caves, and coral gardens. Its crystal clear waters ensure good visibility much to the delight of photographers and marine naturalists. The best coral reef formation can be found at the deepest spot – at Kohng Hin Nang Yuan. The deepwater coral reef formations and marine life are visible even a short distance from the shore. These two islands are amongst the most popular sailing and diving spots in Thailand.

    This tour is available in two options – coach and private. The private option offers you greater flexibility- you can spend as much time at any of the places you visit, as per your preference.
