Translating to “Turtle Island”, Koh Tao is a paradisiacal Thai island on the east of Surat Thani. The island’s name has a literal meaning on account of the fact that dozens of sea turtles call Koh Tao their home. With miles of undisturbed natural beaches, plentiful opportunities for watersports and a diverse array of marine life, it is understandable as to why thousands of adventurers flock to the island every year to witness its beauty for themselves.
One of the best things to do in Koh Tao is to relax on one of the island’s many beaches. Sairee beach attracts something of a party crowd but it is definitely a place to go to enjoy a hip social atmosphere. Sai Nuan and Laem Thian beaches are picturesque, secluded, and offer plenty of opportunity to relax, unwind and practice mindfulness. Those who enjoy getting off the beaten path when they travel will enjoy the scenic coastal hiking trail that runs from Mae Haad to Chalok.
Mae Haad is filled with plenty of accomodation options for those who want to stay close to the pier ready for onward travel to other Thai islands. This is the island’s busiest district but offers plentiful shopping and dining choices. Sairee beach takes you to the center of the backpacker scene and Chalok bay provides a quiet seaside retreat.
