Koh Tao Holidays

Sandy beaches and secluded bays

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 its 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, and is 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, just a few hours away by boat, or visit Bangkok for a complete contrast to the laidback island life.
