Koh Tao, Thailand

The scenery in Aow Leuk, named for its deep, concave shape, is stunning. With the white sandy beach and the water varying shades of blue, and Shark Island in the background, it is one of the most popular sites for snorkelling and is amongst the most beautiful places on Koh Tao. There is a coral reef on both sides of the bay and it begins right off the beach in the shallows. You don’t have to go very far at all to see an abundance of marine life. The large sandy sea floor makes it ideal for swimming and lounging in the water and it is used a lot for diver training.

Twice a year at Aow Leuk, baby blacktip reef sharks can be seen in the shallows here, a perfect nursery environment for them. The adults are found further out, about 400-500 metres from the beach, off the north shore. If you are feeling energetic, you can swim along the south shore to the next bay, Hin Ngam, which is about 600 metres from the beach. This is a beautiful spot for snorkeling with easy, calm conditions for most of the year.

The nearest airports are in Chumphon Airport (Nok Air), Pathio District, Chumphon and Koh Samui Airport. Both offer onward high speed ferry connections to Koh Tao. The flights in Chumphon Airport, however, are much less expensive than those in Samui Airport.
