Exploring the Best Secret Sunset Spot in Koh Tao Our Guide

April 8, 2021

Koh Tao stands for “Turtle Island,” which is a place in Thailand that has so much to offer. It consists of white-sand beaches and crystal-clear waters, and, not to mention, a wide range of exciting sea creatures like turtles. What used to be a secluded, serene island is now teeming with a wide selection of beach resorts and hotels that tourists and locals alike can enjoy!

But did you know that Koh Tao is perfect for experiencing the best sunsets as well? Sure, you may instantly think of the popular spots such as Sairee Beach or John Suwan Lookout, which can be a bit rowdy and crowded. Yet, if you’re looking for the perfect sunset spot on Koh Tao, Nang Yuan Terrace will be your best bet.

That said, let’s explore the best secret sunset spot in Koh Tao.

How to get to the secret sunset spot

The first step is to know how to get to the secret sunset spot in Koh Tao. If you’re coming from Sairee Beach, it will only take you about a ten-minute ride, but for those around Cha Lok, it will take you from 15 to 20 minutes. From where you are, head off towards the beach located towards the North-East corner of the island, directly in front of Koh Nang Yuan. And there you have it—you will reach the secret sunset spot on Koh Tao, known as Nang Yuan Terrace!

Once you reach the viewpoint, you can walk around and find a perfect place to sit and have a glimpse of the surroundings. While you’re at it, you’ll be fascinated by the panoramic views of the Koh Nang Yuan. If you’ve got just right in time, you’ll be rewarded by the amazing view of the sunset. Merely reading about the place or seeing pictures of it won’t do justice to the place, which is why you’ll have to be there in person to truly experience the awe-inspiring scene!

Where to stay in Koh Tao
