About Koh Tao Island
With beaches that are both quiet and beautiful, Koh Tao is the perfect place to go if you would like to relax and take it easy. Also attractive to divers, the beaches and reefs here are quite unspoiled and there are some nice accommodations ranging from bungalows (available to rent short- or long-term) to resorts.
Diving and Snorkeling
Aside from its impressive landscape, Koh Tao is one of the most popular places in the world for divers thanks to the rich marine life that inhabit its waters. From fish to stingrays, Koh Tao is the perfect place to dive if you want to get close to some underwater wildlife. It is especially popular for its sharks and it is as suitable for snorkeling as it is for diving.
Koh Tao is one of the only places in the world that you have a change of diving with a Whale Shark.
