Full Day Island Explorer
Tiny Koh Tao is a turtle-shaped island, 58 km from Koh Samui and named after its peculiar shape, which resembles a kidney bean or abstract turtle shell. The major attraction is its superb offshore diving. Excellent visibility, a wide range of diving sites and a rich variety of coral and marine life make for some of the most rewarding diving in the country. The main dive sites are Green Rock, Chumphon Pinnacle and Southwest Pinnacle. Many sites are suitable for beginners thanks to the shallow inshore bays and clear waters. The island itself is rugged, with dense forest inland, while along the east and west coasts there are fine sandy beaches.
Just to the northwest of Koh Tao lie three immensely scenic islands known collectively as Koh Nang Yuan. Linked by sandbars and surrounded by coral, they are a delightful place to linger for a few days. There will be ample time for swimming, snorkelling around the coral reefs, and sunbathing on the unspoilt beaches. Lunch is served on the island.
