Sunbathing and chilling is what you come to this beach for! Freedom Beach is also known for its spectacular sunsets! Actually, this is a beach you can’t miss when you’re visiting Koh Tao!
Taa Toh Yai Beach
If you’re in the neighborhood it’s a shame if you don’t take a look at Taa Toh Yai Beach. The way to this beach is via a nice adventurous concrete walkway over the sea and rocks. The walkway starts at the right side of the bay of Freedom Beach. Via the concrete walkway you walk in a few minutes along the sea to Taa Toh Yai Beach. When the sea is calm you can at some places go through the rocks into the water to snorkel. Taa Toh Yai Beach has a beautiful small bay with swings and a restaurant, definitely worth a visit!
How to get to Freedom Beach
You get to the beach by taking the irregular concrete steps, watch the railing broken!
Access Freedom Beach: 50 baht p.p.
Scooter: Most of the road is concrete, only the last part of the road is in bad condition. You don’t have to drive this part if you don’t want to. There is a scooter parking lot near the Freedom Beach Resort. From here it is only a short walk. No reason to take unnecessary risks in any case.
Taxi indication: From Sairee Beach to Freedom Beach 400 baht for 1 or 2 persons one way, then 100 baht per person extra.
A cool activity near Freedom Beach is climbing the John Suwan Rock Viewpoint!
