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 late 1990's Ko Taos first, and until recently, only road was laid, the road runs North to South from the far side of Sairee beach to the southern settlement of Chalok Baan Kao. A new road is under construction on the way to Tanote Bay, and when finised it will open up the other side of the island for better development, it is accessable with care at the moment by 4x4. Ko Tao now has 24 hour electricity on the island too and finally they have had a water reservoir made to ensure that even in the dryest periods there is enough water for all. Every now and again progress can be a wonderful thing, its a good thing Koh Tao has maintained its relaxed atmosphere, ]it is,it's] still nigh on impossible to find a crowded beach.

Attracted by the beautiful coral reefs surrounding Koh Tao, and the growth in recreational scuba diving, quite a few companies have set up diving businesses on the island, these companies in turn developed resorts for their clientele, and over the years several of these resorts have become quite plush. These days, you can get everything from cheap simple bamboo bungalows with thatched roofs to elegant high class villas with their own exclusive swimming pool.

Around 1947 the very first settlers laid claim to a big portion of land on which is today called as Sairee Beach. These were the twin brothers Khun Oh and Khun Ueam who reached Koh Tao by boat from the neighboring island of Kho Phangan, the island was still under Royal Patronage in those days but it did not stop these first settlers from staking their claim. The 1st generation of todays community (began,started] settling when they brought over their families and started to harvest & cultivate the on offer. Despite KoTao 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. The first settlers lives consisted of harvesting coconuts, growing fruit & vegetables and of course providing for themselves through fishing.

At the beginning it was a prison island, through to today's development, the island has keept it's sparkle, though it now caters for everyones needs and costs.
