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

In the late 1990's the islands first, and until recently, only road was constructed, the road runs South to North from the far side of Sairee to the southern settlement of Chalok Baan Kao. A new road is being developed towards Tanote Bay, and once finised it will open up the far side of the island for better development, it is accessable with care at the moment with four wheel drive. KohTao now has twenty four hour electricity on the island too and finally they have had a water reservoir constructed to make sure that even in the dryest season there is enough water for all. Occasionally progress can be a wonderful thing, itīs a good thing Ko Tao has kept its chilled atmosphere, ]it is,it's] still nigh on impossible to find a crowded beach.

At the beginning it was a prison, through to today's redevelopment, Koh Tao has retained it's magic, even it now offers something for each individual requirments and expeniture.

KohTao is small, 20 square kilometer and 50% of that too steep to get to. KoTao is surrounded by a lot sharks too, nice friendly ones fortunately. And yes, you can still snorkel with sharks, and perhaps the odd turtle as well, just check out our web site for all the local dive shops available.
