Diving

Turtle Island, as it’s also known, is famous for it’s diving and is one the hottest things to do on Koh Tao.

Many tourists flock to the Thai island each year to explore the underwater world and hopefully get on their way to becoming certified divers.

With dive and snorkel shops lined up along the coast and all throughout town there are plenty of options. Although everyone we seemed to speak to mentioned Big Blue Diving!

Visit Koh Nang Yuan Island

Koh Nang Yuan Island, apart from diving, has become one of the main reasons tourists flock to Koh Tao every year.

Many people choose to get the early taxi boats from Sairee Beach and spend the whole day lapping up the sun in the soft sand paradise.

There are a few separate swimming areas on Koh Nang Yuan.

One is more for snorkelling where you can find a Japanese Garden and many tropical fish. The others are where people tend to just chill out and relax.

A part from that take a day of rest and enjoy one of the best beaches on Koh Tao. And DON’T forget to check out the famous Koh Tao viewpoint

Hike John Suwan Viewpoint

John Suwan Viewpoint is easily the most well known Koh Tao Viewpoint available to the public.

It get’s quite busy at the top as it’s becoming more and more popular amongst tourists. Although it’s well worth the visit.

It’s a small hike to the summit. It takes around 15-20 minutes in total and the trek is of fairly mediocre level. The real battle though is against the heat and humidity! 

Over looking both Chalok Baan Kao Bay and Shark Bay, the view goes on for miles and is one of the best viewpoints in the South Thai islands.
