Location – Chalok Bay
The island of Koh Tao is full of different bays and beaches, who all have their own special atmosphere. Where Sairee Beach is know for the young crowd and great parties, Chalok is the super laid back and quiet bay down in the South of the island. But don’t despair! Koh Tao is a small island, and easy to get around! Busy Sairee beach is only 5 minutes away by scooter or TukTuk. You can still join the party before you return to Chalok for a good night’s sleep. Chalok is also famous for snorkelling with small Blacktip sharks and turtles in Shark Bay!!

In the area of Chalok Bay, you’ll find a few lovely beaches for lazy afternoon sunbathing, plenty of delicious restaurants and cozy little beach bars too. There are also SPAs, shops, tattoo parlours, laundry facilities, kayak rentals, beautiful hikes, viewpoints and plenty of other activities around to keep you occupied when you are not underwater or on your yoga mat!
