How To Reach Sairee Beach

Koh Tao island is tucked on the eastern coast of Thailand while Sairee beach is on the west coast of Koh Tao. In order to reach Sairee beach, one must travel to the small island of Koh Tao which is accessed by a boat journey. The island measures a total distance of 21 square kilometres where road conditions are quite basic. One will only find one single road scaling the island distance from the South to the North that also passes through the Sairee village. Other routes have nothing but tedious dirt roads. 

There are very limited ways to get around the island such as renting a scooter or a bicycle that costs around THB 200 per day. One can always board a longtail boat to explore the island and reach Sairee beach.
