Water sports are somewhat  limited at the beach’s northern end due to the rocks, so it’s only further south where you’ll find most of the water-based activities.

    Image Credit : Shark Attacks
    Haad Sairee, the longest and most popular beach on Koh Tao, boasts a vast stretch of sand lined with bars, restaurants, resorts and dive centers. While the area around the beach is a major hub of activity, the beach itself doesn't get overcrowded – there's always a patch to spread your towel over. The bay can get quite busy with long tail transfers, so keep a keen ear out for boat engines while frolicking. Hawkers do walk the beach selling sarongs, tasty snacks and fresh fruit but are not bothersome. For resort comforts, privacy without total isolation and convenient snorkeling, head north where the coastline gets rockier but the silence makes it worthwhile. 

    Image Credits : bee!



    Activities: Apart from snorkeling, Haad Sairee is a top spot to watch the sunset in Koh Tao, and with many beachside bars to choose from, sipping a cocktail as the golden orb dips is a great way to round off a hectic day.

Iron Fairies

Iron Fairies is a mystical bar that is outlined like an ironsmith's workshop: dim and broody, with fashioned iron staircases, uncovered pipes and broken down timber and block. Bottles pixie dust are stacked in lines, and all over you look, you could risk upon minimal iron dolls of the winged animals that give the bar its name. Open subsequent to 2010, Iron Fairies moved in 2013 (however just three entryways down the road) and extended its operation so now it is a labyrinth of staircases, mystery entryways and dim recesses. The previous premises were tiny to the point that it was a steady fight to get in or out, keeping in mind it is still a tight crush, however, no matter you are standing or sitting you will certainly be in awe with its stylistic theme.
