Koh Tao island is developing but still retains an island charm. The balance is just about right - we have a great variety of resorts to fit every budget, plus fine cuisine from all over the world (especially fantastic Thai food). The West coast of Koh Tao has become the main touristic area, but buildings remain low level, mostly hidden amongst the palm trees that line the beaches. The East coast of Koh Tao is still undeveloped, largely due to the line of mountains that run down the centre of the island.
Off the north west coast we have small three islands joined by a sand bar (Koh Nangyuan Island), plus the stunning Ang Tong Marine Park three hours south west of Koh Tao island.
On this page we cover a brief history of Koh Tao Thailand, the easiest ways to get here, where our DJL diving facilities are located and the best areas to stay. We also recommend great restaurants to eat in, plus the best Koh Tao bars to enjoy during the evenings. We'll tell you about what there is to do if you're not into scuba diving and discuss the best times of year to visit Koh Tao island.
