Koh Tao island is located approximately 70 km east of the coastline between Chumporn and Surat Thani in the Gulf of Thailand and is about 21 km˛ in size - not really big ... but not too small.
As KoTao´s reputation spread and quickly grew as it widely became known all over world through international travellers and adventurous visitors. During the last 12 odd years the island has changed in many ways as it developed to become one of the major dive destinations in Thailand, bringing all levels of divers and water lovers alike. Local fishermen and farmers quickly realised that business people from other places were creating their island to accommodate to the needs of all these new customers and they also, quickly started to open their own businesses to fulfill all the customers demands. From the first bamboo A-Frame bungalows on the beach for 25} Baht a night other wise known as Ferangs.
The name KoTao means translated 'Turtle Island', people say that the name is due to Koh Tao's shape which somehow looks like an inverted down turtle whilst others say its from the days when the sea surrounding KoTao was rich with turtles and Koh Tao was their breeding area.
In those days getting to KoTao required a treacherous boat journey from the main land or near by islands, if and when the weather and 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 practice, so back to the hammock and a world of dreams, the boat will come another day. Consequently, as its reputation for beautiful nature, outstanding marine life and beautiful landscapes grew, better access was made available when better built and safer boats were brought in to cope with the number of back packers being attracted to the island.
