15 minutes in taxi boat from sairee & well worth a visit. We saw our first turtle here 2 years ago and the abundance of colourful fish always brings us back. There is a brilliant little restaurant too that is definitely worth a visit.

There wasn’t when I went a couple of years ago but there might be now. You’ll get better, more up to date answers if you ask in the general Koh Tao forum
