There is an artificial reef in this bay, which gives access to the main village on Koh Tao. Most of the passenger boats arrive at the jetty in the south of the bay. The bay is extremely busy with over 70 dive boat operations and frequent ferries using the jetty. All sorts of shops can be found ashore and it’s a great spot to quickly re-provision.

Pick up one of the available orange moorings or, with permission, tie to the stern of a vessel on one. Care should be taken going ashore at low tide due to the coral heads and lines near the beach.

Many prefer not to use this anchorage, opting for the less hectic and easy Ao Hin Wong (C) on the east side. The road system allows easy access to Haad Sairee, so we only recommend this anchorage for shorter stops for dropping crew off or quick provisioning. The numerous lazy lines, moorings and tourist action near the beach can be overwhelming.
