As it offers great diving spots I went here. The island seemed not crowded as I read in the previous reviews but I was there in the early morning, it is a private owned island so it is open from 10:00 am!

Don't expect much nature feeling here. Place is packed with tourists. Feels more like a very busy public swimming pool. We got dropped off here after a nice snorkeling trip around the island. You need to pay to get in, there are too many restrictions + people to enjoy any swimming or sun-bathing, restaurant is non-appealing... All in all, after... More

This place is special in many ways. For starters, the view is almost surreal. The little stretch of sand feels like a dreamy set from a romantic movie. And water, it's as clear as a rare few spots in the whole Thailand. Just look at the pictures if you don't believe me. There is, however, no point staying there for... More

Koh Nang Yuan or Nang Yuan beach is an awesome place on earth. You will find the total relaxation environment from here. Island, beach, hill, snorkeling, scuba diving all are available here. Only one resort is available here.

Went here as part of a tour. Viewpoint is amazing although big que to get up which leads me to the main point. Just way to many people in a small space. Way overcrowded, can't use beach towels can't bring plastic bottles etc etc Such a shame as a beautiful island but feel it's been made into a cash cow... More

The beach was beautiful. The scenery was mesmerizing. Going up to the view point has a very long queue so I highly recommend rushing towards the viewpoint as soon as you get there. It will be worth it.

Hated it. Sure the viewpoint was nice, but It was hard to appreciate when: - Staff forced there hand in your bag upon arrival to make sure you didn't bring any water bottles. When they did, they threw it out recklessly. - It was really dirty on the beach and on the way up to the viewpoint. (Why didn't they... More

You can reach Nangyuan island from the Mae Haad pier in Koh Tao. We started are trip from Bangkok, boarded the bus from Khaosan road. Lomprayah provides the bus and the connecting ferry to Koh Tao. Hassle free way to reach Koh Tao for Thb 1100 (one way). Boarded the bus around 9.00 pm reached the pier to Koh Tao... More

Take the 10 minute hike to the top of the island and take some pics! The view is unforgettable! Great snorkeling! A must visit! You have to buy the chairs on the beach. Bring lots of Cash! 2 chairs for 150 Baht for the day. And 100 baht a person for entrance fee. Bar/Restaurant only takes cash.
