Aow Leuk Beach Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Travelers looking for seclusion and solitude on Koh Tao, one of Thailand’s most popular islands don’t have it easy. But on the southeastern side of the island, between the Sai Daeng Beach to the north and the Tanote Beach to the south lies the 200 meter long Aow Leuk beach. This stretch of sand is difficult to reach, and because of that, the tourist crowds stay away. Aow Leuk offers crystal clear waters and the peace and serenity necessary to forget everyday life and recover from stress. The bay is shallow, surrounded by the islands typical, fine white sand and big boulders and due to the low depths, is a protected site and a great place for snorkeling and training dives to see luminous butterflyfish, blue angelfish and parrotfish among the corals.
The beach prides itself on being very clean and it is accordingly not allowed to bring your own picnic. But there are a few small, family-run bungalows and a restaurant, so you won’t have to worry about basic necessities, such as food, drinks or snorkel-rentals while still being well away from the crowds.
Aow Leuk Beach can be reached from other parts of the island by a bumpy, rough dirt road. The distance from the main town Mae Haad is only about 5 kilometers, but the pickup taxis still take about half an hour for the trip. If you don’t plan on staying the night, make sure to arrange for a pickup time with the driver to get back into town.
