Nang Yuan are three small islands situated just off the north west coast of Koh Tao. There is a 50 meter sand bar connecting the three islands. The sand bar creates 2 beaches flanked by turquoise sea. It is a natural wonder and easily one of the most beautiful beach destinations in all of South East Asia. When you step in the water you can immediately start to spot marine life. Near the beaches there are angel fish and butterfly fish; farther out eagle rays and very occasionally turtles can be seen.
There are corals nearby and this makes Nang Yuan a perfect place to learn Scuba Diving. On the smallest island there is one mid-range resort called Nang Yuan Island Dive Resort. It is the only place to stay on Nang Yuan Island.
Alternatively, you can make day trips to Nang Yuan from Mae Haad, Sairee Beach and other places on Koh Tao. No visit to Koh Tao is complete without a visit to amazing Nang Yuan island.
There is a 100 Thai Baht entry fee to Koh Nang Yuan. One of the best reasons to stay at least one night at Nang Yuan Resort is that you get the beach all to yourself the following morning before the day trippers arrive. Still even at its busiest, Koh Nang Yuan remains a highlight of most people's trip to Southern Thailand.
