Jansom Bay reviews
The best beach in koh Tao. Great for snorkelling , good restaurant and friendly staff. Entrance fee is 200 bath, and you can use the sun beds. Highly recommended more »
For 200 Bht you find a peaceful little beach which is good for relaxing, eating and snorkelling, or even diving. A wreck ist near and a scuba diving Resort offers its device. It is much quieter than..... more »
Nice bay and beach, good snorkeling... 200 baht fee is a bit high but take full advantage of the fact that Sai Nuan Beach is also included. Walk the beautiful shaded concrete path along the ocean for about 10-15 mins and it will take you to an even better beach. Odds are, you will have it to yourself! Best snorkeling is near the rocks at both bays... some unique reef fish to be found.
It lacked social atmosphere ... a little tight around the knicker elastic although the rustic dropping to bits charm made up for it. Cost 200 bht to enjoy the Bay but no towels offered just a smash and grab - private beach.
