While on the lovely island of Koh Tao we spent a lot of time walking around. Our guesthouse,Viking House, was up on a hill and we could see some of the beautiful coast from our balcony. We spent most of our days with Douglas and Brittany however there were days when we went our separate ways. On this particular day, D&B hired a scooter to explore the island, while Justin and I went to explore some of the resort beaches nearby.

Our plan was to lay on the beach and relax so we didn’t hire a bike.
We found a couple private resort beaches.
The bungalows line the coast. Many of them had private swimming pools.
We found little rest areas along the coast. They were built into the side of the hills, and many lead to bungalows, so they must have been evening relaxing areas. The view from here was amazing.
This bay is popular for swimming and snorkeling.
Even though this beach was gorgeous, we decided to keep walking along the coast paths. We were searching for a white sand beach where we could have a picnic and read for a few hours.
Nice coconuts 😉

The paths connecting all the bungalows were shaded, but we were still very hot.
This beautiful relaxation area was surrounded by a koi pond. It was very peaceful here.
Nothing better than a peaceful day exploring a beautiful island…
