We welcome all travelers and divers in this Paradise
who come here seeking the magic and wonder, and we promise to show you the true meaning of the word Paradise! Thanks for visiting our website, we hope that we can meet us and dive together soon! Koh Tao or Turtle Island, is perhaps the smallest inhabited landmass in the Gulf and boasts some of the most amazing diving locations in Asia, if not the entire world. Covered in lush virgin forest, surrounded by colorful coral reefs and only 21km², it was named after the sea turtles which still swim in the surrounding waters. Koh Tao was ‘discovered' by divers and travelers only very recently and it remains pristine – an island paradise which truly has to be seen to be believed. Golden sandy beaches, secluded bays, and a scuba diving paradise, Koh Tao is one of Southern Thailand's true tropical island escapes. Not only is this lush, pistachio-coloured island blessed with crystal clear water and trippy coral reefs shallow enough for beginners to explore; it’s also is one of the world’s cheapest and most popular places to get your open-water dive certification. Diving is definitely the island’s mainstay, and once you choose an outfitter, there are dozens of spectacular reefs with plentiful marine life to swim through. Once considered exclusively a dive destination, these days Ko Tao is nearly as popular with nondivers as it is with scuba enthusiasts. Small and laid-back, it’s become a haven for those seeking the beauty found on big sisters Ko Samui and Ko Pha-Ngan without the chaos. Fast and frequent ferries make travel to Ko Tao easy, and once you arrive there’s plenty of entertainment – from lounging on pristine beaches to mountain biking through the lush and rugged interior. All in all Ko Tao is a romantic place, where nights are casual affairs, usually involving a quiet drink by candlelight on a cushion near the edge of the sea.
Even though Ko Tao has become more hip with each season, it hasn’t let this celebrity status go to its head. Although there are pockets of frenetic activity, much of the island retains an easy-going pace.
