Taa Toh Bay In Koh Tao – A Complete Guide

Taa Toh Bay Koh Tao is a super special spot that’s tucked away behind the very famous Freedom Beach. This Hidden Koh Tao Beach is a must see on the island!

How To Get To Taa Toh Bay Koh Tao

Taa Toh Bay is a small Koh Tao beach located in the south of the island.

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. From Sairee Beach to Taa Toh Bay Koh Tao, it takes no longer than 15 minutes.

We rented scooters for 150 Baht per day. This is the easiest way possible to explore the whole island.

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 Taa Toh Bay Koh Tao

We’d been given lots of recommendations to visit Taa Toh Bay on Koh Tao, so were expecting it to be a rather popular spot.

However, when we arrived at this beautiful Koh Tao beach, we were pleasantly surprised.

With only a handful of people in sight and volleyball courts, hammocks and small a restaurant, it made for the perfect place to chill for the afternoon.

Taa Toh Bay Koh Tao is just around the corner from Freedom Beach, making the beach hopping process super easy.

To get to Freedom Beach (as well as John Suwan Viewpoint), just follow the boardwalk for a couple of minutes past the boulders. Both of these locations are right next to each other.

They are definitely worth a visit if you’re traveling along the southern coast.

The bar on the beach is quite expensive if you’re ordering drinks, but there is no entrance fee for Taa Toh Bay Koh Tao which is always a bonus.

If you’re looking for a more secluded and quiet beach, then this is definitely the Koh Tao beach for you.
