Haad Sai Daeng is famous for its beautfiul white sand beach surrounded by lush tropical forest. Sai Daeng is in a little cove on the Southern peninsula of Koh Tao that forms part of Rocky Bay. It is located between Ao Leuk and Shark Bay.
Sai Daeng is the perfect place to relax with a good book or go for a dip in the warm, turquiose sea and explore the nearby corals that are teeming with marine life. Nearby is the famous diving and snorkelling spot of shark island where black tip reef sharks and green turtles can be seen.
There are only 2 resorts on Sai Daeng so it is a very peaceful place, far from the parties of Sairee Beach. These two resorts are Coral View Resort and New Heaven Resort. They both have pleasant fan bungalows on the beach and on the rocks overlooking the bay. They both also offer dive courses at reasonable rates.
You can get to Sai Daeng via a bumpy road from Mae Haad or by one of the numerous longtail boats that are available for hire. Many people regard Sai Daeng as one of the best and most unspoiled beaches in Koh Tao.
At Present only Coral View Resort on Sai Daeng is available for booking through the secure online system provided by Agoda. Prices for Coral View Resort start at just 900 Thai Baht a night.
