Whitish sand, plastic garbage everywhere in small pieces. I mean its all over. Spoons, toothbrushs, caps, cups, foliage, straws and a lot of broken small pieces. One Of the dirtiest beaches I’ve seen in Ko Tao. Also it’s swimming on the surface, which looks disgusting...More

We have visited the beach on several occasions over a couple years.. . We were shocked to see the beautiful beach we once remember, covered in plastic. The beach is no longer worth paying for (100 baht)! . Hopefully the resort can get the finger...More

Trash everywhere. I’m sure locals and tides are a factor, but my guess is this is mostly tourist produced waste that just happens to wash up here. People ruining a paradise, it’s sickening. Could be a nice beach- plenty of space, sand, and sun, but...More
