Ko Tao Travel Guide
The young attraction Koh Tao Island’s name is growing like a skyrocket as a diving destination that attracts divers from around the world. The abundant coral reef, both in shallow and deep water, is a home of millions of Sea creatures. Divers around the world come here to witness the beauty of this paradise island. There are many diving schools on the island while diving schools from around the country that take Koh Tao as their training ground. With pristine white sand Beaches, Koh Tao is also a home of peaceful spots for a perfect Koh Tao Travel.
Koh Tao is a small island in the Gulf of Thailand as a part of Koh Pha Ngan district in Surat Thani province. Koh Tao consists of two islands, Koh Tao and Koh Nang Yuan, that stand only 480 meters away from each other. The islands locate 74 kilometers away from the coast of Chumphon province which is 110 away from the coast Surat Thani province and is 45 kilometers away from the famous Koh Pha Ngan.
Koh Tao Travel Guide
- There are motorcycles for rent on the island.
- The best time to visit Koh Tao is February – April.
- Even though the island is in Surat Thani province, but it is closer to the coast of Chumphon. Therefore, the best choice for travelling there is via Boat from Chumphon.
The tiny island of Koh Tao (“Turtle Island”), 45 km north of Koh Phangan, is one of the top scuba diving destinations in Thailand. In fact, only Cairns, Australia issues more PADI certifications than Koh Tao. While some globetrotting SCUBA snobs may express disappointment, the shallow, crystal clear waters of Koh Tao feature abundant marine life and considerable coral that are certain to please both beginners and experienced divers, particularly as the island itself is so spectacular and the atmosphere on Koh Tao is so relaxing. What’s more, the island, which is the site of important breeding grounds for Hawksbill and Green turtles, is now a center for environmentally friendly diving practices, including the reintroduction of hundreds of juvenile turtles to the island’s ecosystem and efforts to preserve and grow coral reefs.
Non-divers can appreciate the beauty of Koh Tao, which seems relatively devoid of inhabitants while the majority of visitors are spending their days underwater, by taking a Boat trip around the island to visit Koh Tao’s many gorgeous beaches and bays, hiking to the summit of the island, studying yoga, or simply relaxing in a hammock and enjoying the view of nearby Koh Nang Yuan, a spectacular attraction in its own right.
Over the past decade Koh Tao has transformed from a sleepy, yet popular place to get a scuba certification to the second most popular place in the world to do so. Once a destination almost exclusively for scuba divers and those looking to get away from it all, Koh Tao is now also a destination for wild 20-somethings to warm up before or unwind after neighboring Koh Phangan’s Full Moon Party. Fortunately, despite its quite small size, most of the beaches around Koh Tao have retained a charming, laid back atmosphere and bungalows ranging from ultra-basic thatch roof to chic and boutique are available for those on any budget to enjoy the beauty of one of Thailand’s most spectacular islands.
