Koh Nang Yuan - Surat Thani

Ko Nang Yuan is a small island near Ko Tao, at the Central Gulf Coast of Southern Thailand.
Ko Nang Yuan is a small island very close to Ko Tao. It is famous for its diving spots and its great snorkeling beach (where fish can be fed by hand). Many day trippers come from the islands of Ko Tao, Ko Pha Ngan and Ko Samui, as well as from Surat Thani on the Thai mainland.
Offering stunning and breathtaking views, the islands are connected by a three-way stretch of pure white powdery beach. The rich marine life at Ko Nang Yuan is similar to that of Ko Tao. With a wide variety of coral formations, the island is also an ideal diving and snorkeling spot. Accommodations and facilities are available with daily boat service to and from Ko Tao.
The only option is by boat. There are two types of boat available:
Long boat taxi from Ko Tao.
Lomprayah catamaran which does twice trips from Chumphon to Ko Samui and Ko Samui to Chumphon.
As of August 2006, one-way fare from Ko Samui takes just under 2 hours but more comfortable.
The island is tiny; the only way to get around is by walking.
The island is very pretty; it's formed by three separate rocky outcrops connected by a three-pronged white sand beach, much of which is submerged at high tide. The view from the southernmost outcrop is particularly impressive.
There is some great snorkeling at Japanese Gardens, which is one of the bays created by the islands. You can take a long tail here too.
