We stayed at The Haad Tien and spent several days swimming and snorkeling in the Thian Og Bay. The water is a clean but a bit shallow, but the snorkeling is really great with so many different kinds of fish.

Private beach for Haad Tien Resort guest. This is a beautiful bay. The water is clear. You may see small fishes here.

excellent clean beaches, chilled out vibe, and quite a few hotels, though most hotels are quite expensive. Its a good place to come, just for a couple of hours if all you wanna do is lay on the beach

Many top quality hotels, resorts, and restaurants. Unfortunately the beach is private access to Haad Tien clients only. But if you are, it is well worth it.
