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
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.
