Koh Tao, Thailand
Island Information




Unlike neighbouring Koh Samui and Koh Phangan, Koh Tao remained untouched by tourism for many years. Then in the late 1980's the first Samui based dive operators began running overnight live-aboard trips and were amazed by what they saw.


Crystal clear waters boasting an amazing array of colour and coral reefs alive with an incredible diversity of marine life. Soon dive operations began re-locating to Koh Tao realizing they had uncovered a wealth of untouched beauty.


Crystal Dive Resort, Koh Tao


Fifteen years later, an increase in tourism and growth has seen Koh Tao recognized one of the world's most beautiful islands, both above and below the water.




Koh Tao Beaches


Koh Tao is a beautiful, tropical island located off the east coast in the Gulf of Thailand. It is blessed with golden beaches, stunning bays, mountain views and some of the best (and most famous) scuba diving sites in the world.



Koh Tao Weather


The weather in Koh Tao is a typically tropical climate. The nature of the island and numerous dive sites means even when we have windy days, we are able to move around the island and dive a sheltered site.



Travel Information - Bangkok to Koh Tao


Getting to Koh Tao, the most popular travel options are either bus or train from Bangkok down to the port city of Chumphon to catch the high-speed ferry service over to to the island. Alternatively there are regular flights to Koh Samui.
