As others point out, facilities at the beach are a bit ropey and maybe people object to paying 100 Baht. It's hardly a lot of money though and they give you a drink. Loungers are not particularly well-maintained, but there is plenty of shade. The restaurant overlooking the bay is a stunning location and food is OK, if not great.... More

I went Aow Leuk Bay with my BF for snorkeling on Feb. A lot of trash in the ocean. The beach very dirty. Nobody clean even you have to pay for entrance fee 100THB/person. The beach chair dirty and broken. Don't go here if you don't want to loose time of your value vacation !!

You have to pay 100 baht to get to this beach They say it is to keep the beach clean but it was full of rubbish You get also a old ugly sunlounge for this price The snorkeling was not bad even if the coral is almost all dead

How sad to read that there is so many garbage and even an entrance fee... My favorite Thai island and 2,5 yrs ago when i was there was much different. I guess it's true...people are ruining it. Just sad.

Smaller than some of the other private beaches, but probably one of my favourites. You have to pay 100 baht to get in, but this includes a soft drink and use of their sun beds (although they are not the best quality). - Gorgeous snorkeling and just a very beautiful beach!!! I definitely recommend.

i think this is one of the best places to snorkel in Koh tao - even though i did not rate a 5 stars because some bays up on the north east side are probably the best. You can see however in this bay many beautiful fish and the sand is quite nice.

Another bay with a entrance fee !For the price you get a cold drink( value 20 bahts) and a ugly sun lounger ! The bay looks great ,even if all those sun loungers look ridiculous ! There was so many plastic under water and hundreds of concrete blocks in the middle of the bay ???!!!
