Koh Tao, Thailand

3 night bungalow acc. (non - diver) (4 days / 3 nights. Incl. 0 dives)

The diving
Out of all the diving offered on the East coast of Thailand, Koh Tao has the better of it. The island is famous for its laid back atmosphere on land. It is a cool paradise for those wanting to do their initial course or already certified divers continuing their education. It's not a lie, when said that Koh Tao is addictive. Backpackers usually end up staying for weeks.

The reef has taken some damage from the tourism, but due to a massive effort to protect and rebuild the reefs, the corals and the fish life is doing really well. Koh Tao is now offering some really good diving for divers on all levels.
Many dive sites are sheltered reefs with beautiful corals, good visibility, shallow depths and little to no current. Sites are reached in less than 20 minutes by boat. Deeper dive sites with pelagic marine life can be found a short 45 minute boat ride away. All year round lucky divers are encountering Whale sharks, Reef Sharks, Rays and Turtles.

Location
Above water Koh Tao is a cozy little island surrounded by warm clear turquoise waters. It is by far the most popular spot for dive training in South East Asia. Diving here is possible year-round, with just a short rainy season during October/November. The island is also very famous for its own nightlife and for the full moon parties on the neighboring island Koh Pagnan. Koh Tao is a true pearl in the ocean with white sandy beaches lined with palm trees and several secluded bays for you to chill at. The atmosphere is like nowhere else, people come to dive, party and hang out in bamboo bars and fluffy beanbags.

Your resort
It can be hard picking the right accommodation when arriving on Koh Tao, the options are many and the price range is broad. We've based the choice of accommodation on the dive center. When diving, you want the dive center to be top professional and above all, experienced and safe in all matters. Your accommodation with the dive center is basic, but clean and cozy. The dive center itself is something else; we know all the dive centers on the island. We recommend this one! The resort has all facilities, including swimming pool, restaurant and bar. It is located right on Sairee Beach, the most popular beach on Koh Tao.

Your room
Standard twin room with fan and hot water.
