Information about Koh Tao

oh Tao is to the northeast of Surat Thani, about 38 kilometers from Koh Phangan, and about 64 kilometers away from Chumphon.

Since 2005 it is now really easy to get to Koh Tao. You can drive with one of the high speed catamaran boats. You can also arrive from one of the neighboring islands (Koh Phangan or Koh Samui).

Diving in and around Koh Tao's beautiful coral reefs is the islands main attraction. Resorts on Koh Tao offer a wide range of accommodation to fit most budgets.

Traveling around the island and visiting other beaches and bays pretty easy.. Just off the concrete main road you have to be careful when driving on dirty roads. Pick -ups and taxies can be found almost everywhere.

The name KoTao means in Thai 'Turtle Island', some say that the name is due to Koh Tao's shape which is meant to look like an upside down turtle whilst other people say its from the days when the sea around the island was swimming with turtles and the island was their main breeding ground.

Attracted by the outstanding coral reefs surrounding Ko Tao, and the quick growth in sport scuba diving, a number of companies have set up diving businesses on the island, these companies in turn designed exclusive resorts for their customers, and over the years several of these resorts have become quite elegant. Now a days, you can get everything from basic simple bamboo bungalows with thatched roofs to elegant up-market villas with their very own private swimming pool.

Ko Tao is small, 22 square km and half of that too steep to access. Koh Tao is surrounded by a lot big sharks too, nice 'non-human-eating' ones fortunately. And yes, you can still snorkel with sharks, and perhaps the odd turtle as well, just check out our web site for all the local dive shops available.

In those days getting to KoTao required a treacherous boat journey from near by islands or the main land, if and when the weather & seas permitted but the population continued to grow steadily all the same, even when simple life was hard without much reward. Arrivals & departures were on the local coconut boats, and even then delays of several days were common place, so back to the hammock and the world of dreams, the boat will come another day. Consequently, as its reputation for gorgeous nature, unique marine life and beautiful landscapes grew, better access was made available when better built and safer boats were brought in to handle the number of visitors being attracted to the island.
