Eat, swim and relax on this Sairee beach shaded by big trees and surrounded by the a bit of island buzz. Perfect for all people looking to take a walk along the beach road and checkout the town while catching some UV rays. Don't forget to try the fried chicken cashew nut, it's the best on the island!

Lovely beach at the end of two quiet resorts. Jump into the water with your snorkels and head towards the rocks where you will find 'The Japanese Gardens". Lovely bit of snorkelling. You can also grab a taxi boat here for a tour or a lift to Koh Nganyuan Island across the water. Mr Wan is the best driver. Not all the food here is great, but the Indian Curry and the pork schnitzel are awesome!

Essentials
Get all your basic needs here, but keep in mind they do not sell much fresh produce. Plenty of familiar brands though and cheapest alcohol on the island.
