Sairee offers a wide range of accommodation types to suit all budgets, from bungalows on the beach to mid-range boutique hotels and luxury spa resorts.
At the southern end of the beach is Jor Por Ror, a massive rock formation bearing the engraved monogram of King Rama V. The Fishery Museum and the Fishery Conservation Unit are located opposite, where marine life is studied and cultivated.
When wading out to sea, visitors find that the white sand beach is surprisingly shallow. However, Sairee offers some of the island’s best and most accessible snorkeling with a colorful coral reef starting just 100 meters off shore. Snorkeling and diving trips can be easily arranged by the beach’s many dive schools, or at most hotels. Koh Tao’s colorful sea life includes rays, turtles, puffer fish, sharks and ghostly shipwrecks off the coastline. Snorkeling and diving are two of the main reasons travelers visit Koh Tao.
Nightlife is concentrated in southern and central Sairee Beach, while shops and restaurants are located towards the north. Beyond the north end are a couple of small bays and sleepy beaches with a handful of resorts. Bicycles and motorcycles can be rented on Sairee Beach, making the rest of the island more accessible.
