You can pop in and out at your leisure. Take a look at our Koh Tao tour itinerary website to schedule your visit to Aow Leuk Bay and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

Not nice, but there is nothing for it: At the beach entrance behind the parking lot 100 baht entrance per person are collected, the basis for this is not quite clear, but at least you get a cooled can of soft drink and theoretically also a beach lounger.
