Jansom Bay is a beautiful white sand beach. One of the best on the island of Koh Tao. The beach is only 10 minutes walk from Mae Haad, the main port town, on the south-west side of Koh Tao. It's good for kids because there is no currents and the water is clear and quite shallow. It's a privately owned beach so a small entrance fee will be charged.

Jansom Bay is the best place on the western coast of Tao. But it is private, so you have to pay 200 Baht to stay there unless you are guest of Charm Churee Villa hotel.
