This is a lovely spot, filled with action in Koh Tao. The beach is spotless and lined with a selection of bars and restaurants so there's plenty to do. The water is gorgeous and is a lovely spot for swimming amongst the longtail taxi boats....More

I would recommend Sairee beach as a great place to spend an evening after a day snorkeling or diving, It has good bars down the main beach stretch without being overwhelming,
