About Koh Tao

THE ISLAND

Koh Tao, also known as 'Turtle Island', is a small island located in the Gulf of Thailand. Well known for its laid back atmosphere, beautiful sandy beaches, crystal waters and pristine coral reefs. Koh Tao is a must see location for any trip to Thailand. Koh Tao is best known as a scuba diving paradise with multiple dive centers offering the highest level of diver training in any language at the best price! Not a diver? Not a problem! Why not try taking a boat trip around the island to visit Koh Tao's many gorgeous beaches and bays, hiking to the summit of the island, snorkeling tours, a day trip to beautiful sister island Koh Nang Yuan.

THINGS TO DO

While Koh Tao's major attraction is scuba diving all kinds of water sports are on offer such as free diving, snorkeling tours, wake-boarding, kayaking, paddle boarding or fishing trips. Not a fan of water? Don't worry there is more to Koh Tao! Try hiking around the island to find peaceful, picturesque beaches or stunning viewpoints. Why not try some rock climbing or abseiling. Maybe take some Thai cooking lessons and learn the culinary secrets to Thailand's famous cuisine or just relax with some yoga, massage and soak up the sun on the beach whilst enjoying a well deserved cocktail at one of Koh Tao's chilled out beach bars. Once the sun sets the island wakes up! Koh Tao is blessed with many mouth-watering restaurants serving up both western and Thai delicacies as well as many bars and clubs to dance the night away on the beach and under the stars!

GETTING HERE

Koh Tao is an island without an airport, therefore to get here you have to come by boat. There are a few companies running scheduled services departing from Chumphon and Surat Thani (both on the mainland), as well as Koh Samui. All three locations have airports and pier transfer services available. Some airlines (Nok Air, AirAsia) have joined up with the boat companies and joint tickets (flight,transfer and boat) are now available on-line. We recommend contacting our trusted travel agent partner Island Travel for all travel and island activities.
