Aow Leuk is located in the bay located on the east coast of Koh Tao.
The landscape here is impressive. With white sand beach and water with different shades of blue, and Shark Island in the background, Aow Leuk is one of the most popular sites for snorkeling and is among the most beautiful places on Koh Tao. There is a coral reef on both sides of the bay and starts right next to the beach in the shallow waters. You do not have to go far to see the abundance of marine life. The large seabed makes it ideal for swimming and resting in the water and is used extensively for training divers.
Twice a year in Aow Leuk, black combs reef sharks can be seen here in the shallow waters, a perfect daycare environment for them. Adults are further away, about 400-500 meters from the beach, on the north coast.
