Ao Hin Wong is located on the east coast of Koh Tao, Hin Wong is a large bay surrounded by boulders. There is a lot to see here snorkelling and you could spend an entire day here exploring the bay.
There are several underwater pinnacles covered in fertile coral, anemones and many kinds of fish can be seen here. Due to the rock formations it is difficult to walk around Hin Wong Bay, so it’s good idea to rent a kayak to get around. Go across to the area in front of the beach on the south side of the bay, it’s one of the best snorkelling spots on Koh Tao.
The water here is incredibly clear and you may be lucky enough to see great schools of sardines being chased by hungry trevally in water less than a metre deep. Another great place here for snorkelling is a point in the north of the bay.
Again, there is lots of well preserved coral and abundant marine life. Hin Wong Bay is a quiet getaway and you can get here by road or boat. If you feel like walking, it takes about an hour from the junction at Sairee.
