AboutKoh Tao

Koh Tao or Ko Tao (Thai: เกาะ เต่า) is a Thai island that is located in the Gulf of Thailand in the south of the country. It belongs to the changwat Surat Thani. The island has an area of 21 km² and has around 1400 inhabitants. The economy is almost entirely focused on tourism and then specifically on diving.

Koh Tao is also known as the turtle island, but it is not clear exactly where the name comes from. Seen from the side, the island looks like the shell of a turtle.

The best Koh Tao hotels and resorts are found around Sairee beach where you can enjoy a beautiful sunset almost every day, bbq on the beach, have some cocktails in one of the many bars on the beach or just kick back and relax.
