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.

From 1933-1947 the island was home to political prisoners. Because it's positioned approximately 71 kilometres from Suratthani or Chumporn meant it was fairly escape proof! Alcatraz ... piece of cake in comparison with this island.

In 1947 the very first settlers laid claim to a big part of land on which is today called as Sairee Beach. They were the twin brothers Khun Ueam and Khun Oh who got to the island by a fishing boat from the neighboring island of Koh Panghan, KohTao was still under Royal Patronage in those days but it did not prevent these first settlers from claiming their stake of land. The very first generation of todays community (began,started] settling when they brought over their families and started to cultivate and harvest the very rich. Despite Ko Tao still being under Royal Patronage, plots of land were claimed, and cleared for coconut plantations. You will still see loads of evidence of the large plantations all over the island. Their lives consisted of harvesting coconuts, growing vegetables & fruit and of course providing for themselves through fishing.

In those days getting to Koh Tao required a treacherous boat trip from near by islands or the main land, if and when the seas and weather permitted but the population continued to grow steadily all the same, even when simple life was hard without much reward. Arrivals and departures were on the local coconut boats, and even then delays of several days were common practice, 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 got bigger, 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.

The years after 1980 brought to Ko Tao some of the first back packers from Koh Panghan who were looking for some thing new avoiding the masses and crowds going mad for the full moon parties on Kohpangan. Here they discovered something more then just a new island to explore and soon the back packer network had a new topic to talk about about the wonderful newly found tropical island paradise of Koh Tao. Hyptomised by the beautiful beaches, the back of beyond aura, and of course the cheap living, back packers soon arrived in droves.
