Ao Mae Haad

Getting there and away

Getting Around

Mae Haad is Ko Tao's major port town, so all travellers will come through here when arriving to the island. All locations in Mae Haad and most in Sairee are easily accessed by foot, although taxis are available.

A short ride to Sairee should cost 50B during the day but climbs as high as 200B/person at night. Other destinations are priced depending upon distance and road conditions, and most aren't too outrageous. An army of boat taxis also awaits visitors at the pier, and they have a well-organised and fair price structure posted around town that will deliver you just about anywhere on the island.

Motorbikes can be rented from several shops for 150-250B/day as can ATVs for 1,000-1,500B/day (depending on size).

Check the main Ko Tao transport section for ferry timetables.
