Freedom Beach In Koh Tao – A Complete Guide

Freedom Beach Koh Tao is a haven for most travellers heading to the island. With a hidden cove and plenty of hammocks, here’s everything you need to know.

How To Get To Freedom Beach Koh Tao

Freedom Beach Koh Tao is a secret paradise amongst tourists.

Located towards the most Southern point of the island, it also gives access to Taa Toh Beach and John Suwan Viewpoint. All from one car park.

If you’re looking for transport to and from Koh Tao, you can pre-book all of your Lomprayah transfers.

We stayed at the Northern end of Sairee Beach, the tourist hub of Koh Tao. We rented scooters for 150 Baht per day. This is the easiest way possible to explore the whole island.

You can get also get an awesome view of Chalok Bay, through the palms at the entrance!

For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.

What To Expect At Freedom Beach Koh Tao

Freedom Beach is probably one of the most well known Koh Tao beaches on the south coast amongst travellers.

This is down to it’s super cosy and tucked away vibes, and the secluded feeling it gives off.

It wasn’t super busy when we visited but it was definitely a stunning little spot. With a beach hut bar and plenty of trees for shade, it made for the perfect place to chill out for the afternoon.

There’s not a lot to do at Freedom Beach apart from laze in hammocks or take a walk around the bay to Taa Toh Bay. Another hidden gem!

Also, if you’re feeling energetic, make sure to pop up to John-Suwan Viewpoint before you leave! For one of the best viewpoints on Koh Tao.
