Koh Tao Island and Sea
Koh Tao is a small island which covers an area of only 21 km² however you will be amazed by the amount of activities provided. The West coast will fit travellers who wants to try new sports, food, beach activities during the day time and enjoy the night life. The East coast will fit the lovers of nature, beautiful beaches, and serenity. We recommend to choose your accommodation on Sairee beach because it is more convenient for transportation. Koh Tao, translating as Turtle Island was named this as the waters were once brimming with sea turtles however have since moved on to a new breeding ground. Koh Tao Thailand is known for its incredible amount of snorkelling, scuba diving and freediving dive sites due to its beautiful colourful coral reefs. Whale sharks and various other marine life are often met by divers on a daily basis. Koh Tao also has a rich jungle in the centre surrounded by remarkably quiet, palm tree laced beaches. With other various sport and underwater activities, flawless beaches, a vast amount of bars and restaurants to chose from, you won’t quite know where to start first!

Our boats can reach most freediving dive sites in 15-20minutes and bring back students straight to the beach without transfer to a smaller boat. Our dormitory and rooms are located above the shop and our restaurant provides excellent breakfast and lunches (vegetarian and vegan food available and recommended for apnea training). Yoga classes run every day at 6pm by experienced instructors teaching vinyasa, ashtanga, hatha and pranayama.
