The Shark Bay in Koh Tao is a unique and surreal spot popular for snorkeling and spotting the blacktip reef sharks that visit this beach regularly. Located in Bangkok, the Shark Bay Koh Tao is a private bay glistening with white sand and shaded by tall coconut trees which are called ‘Thian’ by the locals. The local name for these trees gives the beach its original name- Thian Og, though the beach is more popularly referred to as by the name of Shark Bay.
The Shark Bay is famous not just for its sharks, but also for its serenity and beauty. Be on the lookout for the green turtles as well, which are extremely friendly. Those who don't want to pay for a private snorkel, can always spend a day in solitude at the beach, dipping in and out of the turquoise waters of the ocean at ease. There are some fancy restaurants scattered along the beachfront ideal for the relaxing trip to the beach.
