This small island far out in the Gulf of Thailand is well-known for the beauty of its beaches and coral reefs. Named turtle (“Tao”) island for its hump-backed shape, Koh Tao is also home to hawksbill and green turtles. One of the best diving spots in the Gulf, Koh Tao also offers hiking, rock climbing and bouldering.

Visitors also favor Sai Ri beach on the west coast, which has a 1.7 kilometer-long stretch of white sand beach interrupted only by a few huge boulders. These attractions have enabled the rapid growth of the island’s tourism facilities, and it now has more than 150 resorts, mostly medium-priced bungalows and some 50 nightclubs.
