There aren’t a lot of snorkeling spots left on Koh Samui. The Five islands, on the contrary, still have a great underwater life. You can still enjoy coral and schools of fish. It’s not as good as Koh Tao, but if you don’t feel like doing the 1,5 hour ride there, the snorkeling tour to Koh Taen is a great alternative! Be sure not to hit any coral so we can preserve it for future visitors.
When coming from busy Koh Samui, the Five islands are a peaceful haven. Limited building is allowed on the islands, which makes sure that the islands keep their natural look and feel. It feels like being alone in tropical paradise! The islands are a short 20 minute ride away and located south of Koh Samui.

the best snorkeling spot around samui.
We did this trip with our small children (5 and 6) because of the distance from Koh Samui and our location in the south of the island. I must admit that the islands are still an amazing getaway as it looks serene and full of nature. There isn;t much to do on Ten island but snorkeling. the coral is fading away slowly but it has plenty of fish which was really enjoyable. Go see before it looks the same as on Samui!
