The water is one of the cleanest and clearest I had seen in Koh Samui. It's very private and secluded. It was good to get away from all the people and just be able to relax peacefully.

you really need to get on a boat and visit the islands. generally there is no good off-beach snorkelling in Koh Samui. same goes for Kao Lak - you need to go to the Similan or Surin islands.
