Koh Tao Holidays

Possibly Thaland's best kept secret, Koh Tao - known locally as "Turtle Island" -  is an island of many delights.

Expect beaches of golden sands, secluded bays and an exciting scuba diving paradise with Aow Muang being the top snorkelling spot on the island. As well as it's beautiful beaches and wonderful waters, Koh Tao is also home to the Wat Koh Tao Buddhist temple where you can meet the monks and see their way of life. It's the ideal location for a spot of jungle hiking to reach amazing view points such as John Suwan and Koh Nang Yuan for unbelievable vistas of the island.

Combine your visit to Koh Tao with Koh Samui which is just a few hours away by boat, or visit Bangkok for a complete contrast to the laidback island life.

Koh Tao is known around the world as being a haven for divers of all abilities. Divers flock here for the spectacular sites beneath the warm waves, but also because it's probably one of the most affordable places to participate in the sport.

The fresh seafood here is not to be missed, with many restaurants which will tempt you in with their catch of the day.
