Sairee Beach Koh Tao, Thailand

Sairee Beach Koh Tao with it's beautiful warm turquoise waters and amazingly white beach it is easy to see why Sairee has become the heart of Koh Tao and one of Thailand's top holiday destinations. However due to its size it is somewhat protected from getting over populated. Even though we get many travellers the majority of westerners on the island are here because of diving. This means that there is a far more relaxed attitude on Sairee Beach Koh Tao than other parts of Thailand.


  • Koh Tao island is like paradise on earth. If you don’t like cheap alcohol, great food and beautiful surroundings don’t bother.

  • A favourite in northern Sairee and a popular dive outfit... Friday night pool parties are a big draw!

  • A trip around the world was hijacked, a boyfriend was (temporarily) abandoned, and a lifestyle was discovered the minute my feet were again in the DJL.
