On the island
KOH TAO - turtle island
Koh Tao is one of the busiest places in the world for diving.
The diversity and density of the underwater fauna and flora, as well as its many low-cost diving schools attract tourists from all over the world.
There are more than 80 dive shops on the market of this small island of 21 km².
The increasing presence of competitors tends to lower prices further, while its popularity with divers is steadily increasing, putting Koh Tao in a very good position to become the first choice destination for diving in Southeast Asia.
It is a central key point for diving and a starting point for beginner divers.
Its reputation is created thanks to its turquoise waters, its white sand beaches, its multicolored corals, its exceptional aquatic biodiversity and especially its backpackers which thanks to the mouth of Oreilles have made known this isolated place. At that time it was easier to understand the translation of the name Koh Tao (Turtle Island).
This island remains an ideal place where divers can find a good compromise to be on the other side of the world, dive, dream, sunbathe, enjoy and discover at the same time.
