Koh Tan is a few hundred metres off the southwestern coast of Koh Samui from Taling Nam fishing village. It is a small, largely unspoilt island, known for its coral and marine life. Giant clams, fan corals and a wide variety of fish species live in and around the protected reefs.
Koh Tan can be reached by local long tail fishing boat. Trips generally include snorkelling on the reef, a stop at one of the island’s fine beaches, and a walk along the wooden platform that was built by the locals to view the mangrove forests. Koh Tan is known throughout the region as the island without dogs. According to local folklore, any dog that has been taken to live there has quickly gone insane, but luckily the local population seem not to suffer the same fate.
