One of the best spots for diving on the island is at the quiet beach of Chalok Ban Kao, a little way south of Koh Tao. Here you’ll discover the Alvaro Diving & Taraporn Bungalows, a colourful beach community where visitors can learn to free-dive, as well as taking part in a range of beach games and other water sports, including volleyball, kayaking and windsurfing.
Another popular option is to hire a bicycle and take a tour around the island. There are many picturesque villages you can visit, including Mango Bay, Freedom Beach and Laem Thian, which offer vibrant island culture and the chance to find some wonderfully quiet, remote beaches.
Koh Tao also boasts some of the best sunsets anywhere in Thailand – some of the most popular spots to watch the sun go down include the John Suwan mountain viewpoint at the south end of the island and Fraggle Rock to the north.
