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.

Dating from 1933 until 1947 the island was inhabitated mostly by political prisoners. Being situated approximately 70 kilometres from Suratthani or Chumporn meant it was fairly escape proof! Alcatraz ... was nothing compared to Koh Tao.

The name Ko Tao means in Thai 'Turtle Island', some tell that this name is from the islands shape which is meant to look like an inverted down turtle whilst others say its from the days when the water surrounding Koh Tao was rich with turtles and Koh Tao was their main breeding site.

Initially this tiny island had no one living on it, visited only by local fishermen from not far away islands when seeking shelter during difficult maritim conditions or when in need of fresh water.

In those days getting to KoTao required a treacherous boat trip from near by islands or the main land, if and when the seas & weather permitted but the population of the island continued to grow steadily all the same, even when simple life was hard without much reward. Arrivals & departures were on the local coconut boats, and even then delays of several days were common practice, so back to the hammock and a world of dreams, the boat will come another day. Consequently, as its reputation for beautiful nature, unique marine life and beautiful landscapes grew, better access was made available when better built and safer boats were brought in to handle the number of backpackers being attracted to the island.
