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.

In the early days getting to Ko Tao required a treacherous boat trip from near by islands or the main land, if and when the seas & weather permitted but the population of the island continued to grow firmly all the same, even when simple life was hard without much reward. Departures & arrivals were on the local coconut boats, and even then delays of several days were common place, so back to the hammock and a world of dreams, the boat will come another day. Consequently, as its reputation for fabulous nature, unique marine life and amazing landscapes got bigger, better access was made available when better built and safer boats were brought in to handle the large number of backpackers being attracted to the island.

The years after 1980 brought to KoTao some of the first backpackers from Kohpangan looking for something new away from the crowds and masses going nuts for the Fullmoon parties on Koh Phangan. Here they discovered some thing more then just a new island to explore and soon the back packer network was buzzing about the great newly found island paradise of Ko Tao. In ore by the tropical beaches, the back of beyond aura, and of course the cheap living, backpackers soon arrived in droves.

The name Koh Tao means in Thai 'Turtle Island', some tell that this name is because of the islands shape which is meant to look like an upside down turtle whilst others say its from the days when the water surrounding the island were rich with turtles and Koh Tao was their breeding site.

Attracted by the beautiful coral reefs surrounding KoTao, and the quick growth in sport diving, quite a few companies have set up diving businesses on the island, these companies in turn designed resorts for their clientele, and over the years several of these resorts have become quite plush. These days, you can find everything from basic simple wooden bungalows with thatched roofs to elegant up-market villas with their very own private swimming pool.
