About Jansom Bay in Koh Tao

Jansom Bay is a beautiful cove just north of the main port town of Mae Haad on the tropical island of Koh Tao. Although located near the most famous beaches on the island Jansom Bay is often overlooked by those visiting the island for the first time. For those looking for fine white sand, good mid-range accommodation and convenience Jansom Bay is a good option.

The most popular beach on Koh Tao is the 3 km long stretch of fine white sand called Sairee Beach. The beach has good swimming and a great sunset over the ocean. Sairee Beach is the most commercial on the island and tends to get busy during the day and noisy at night.

For those looking for the same fine sand and sunset views as Sairee Beach the small cove south of Sairee Beach called Jansom Bay is a good option. It is a crescent shaped beach flanked with rocks. The sea is clear and gets deep gradually making it perfect for children paddling. The bay has some good snorkeling spots along the rocks. You can also rent a kayak and explore the dive site of Three Rocks. It is a famous spot where it is sometimes possible to see Leopard sharks and green sea turtles.

The only accommodation on Jansom Bay is Charm Churee Village. It is a good mid-range resort with 3 restaurants and a spa. All the bungalows have sea views and some are just a few steps from the sea. All the rooms at Charm Churee Village have air-con and hot water. The resort doesn’t have a swimming pool but it does have 3 restaurants and a spa. Bungalows at Charm Churee Village start at about $80 a night.

Although Charm Churee Village claims to own the beach at Jansom Bay and accordingly charges people who visit, it has no legal right to do so. The resort has just set a precedence that has never been challenged. Residents at Charm Churee Village are not subject to pay the entrance fee to the beach.

Other than the annoyance of paying to go to Jansom Bay, it is a perfect spot for those who want an excellent beach and to be near the best shops, restaurants and bars.
