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

From the begining this small island had no one living on it, frequented only by local fishermen from near by islands when seeking shelter during thunder storms or also if a fishing crew was getting water or and supplies.

Around 1947 the 1st settlers laid claim to a large portion of land on what is today known 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 Kho Phangan, KoTao was still under Royal Patronage in those days but it did not stop those first settlers from claiming their stake of land. The very first generation of today's community (began,started] settling when they brought over their families and started to cultivate and harvest the on offer. Despite KoTao still being under Royal Patronage, plots of land were claimed, and cleared for coconut plantations. You can still see loads of evidence of the huge coconut plantations all over the island. The first settlers lives consisted of harvesting coconuts, growing vegetables & fruit and of course sustaining themselves through fishing.

On June the 18th 1899, the King Chulalongkorn (Rama V 1868-1910) visited the island and wrote his sign as evidence on a big rock at Jor Por Ror Bay (near,next to] Sairee Beach. This place is worshipped even today and get treated with the greatest of respect.
