Koh Nang Yuan, Koh Tao

3.6
#1 of 18 in Parks in Koh Tao
Snorkel and dive among the teeming coral reefs at Koh Nang Yuan, a privately owned island. A diving instructor teaches beginners and provides refresher courses for those who haven't dived in a while. After working up an appetite swimming, dine at the island's restaurant, or enjoy a drink or two at the beach bar. Climb to the top of the densely forested hill via a well built trail for panoramic views of the island and nearby Ko Tao.

  • If you are in Koh Tao you must visit Nang Yuan. Swim and snorkel in clear, warm water. Or walk up to the viewpoint for the best views of the island. Nice restaurant too. Barter for a return taxi boat....  more »
  • This place is such a tourist trap. Overcrowded, expensive and bad food. If you want a picture from the viewpoint, Go there as early as possible! Around 9:30, so that you fist in line when the “doors.....  more »

  • Beautiful island, well worth a visit if you're on Koh Tao. Word to the wise - don't attempt to take any plastic bottles or tin cans with you as you won't be allowed to take them past the dock (pollution concerns). We thought we were being smart bringing water and beers with us. Lovely snorkelling spots off the sand bar
  • Worth it for the view point and the snorkeling. But there are too many tourists during most of the day. You have to get a boat taxi (300B per person RT which seemed pretty standard) and another 100B entrance to the island. Don't bring any plastic bottles or they will make you throw them out. The last boats leave at 5 pm so need to make it to the pier by then.
