Travellers will enjoy Koh Tao.

Travellers will enjoy spending time on the island of Koh Tao. Located on Thailand's eastern coast, Koh Tao has a permanent population of just over 1,000 people. The island is a secluded spot, and HomeAway has a variety of accommodation solutions. Whether travellers are searching to accommodate a large group in a villa in Koh Tao or a small apartment for a romantic getaway, HomeAway has the perfect accommodations available. The accommodation on Koh Tao also come with a variety of amenities, such as beachfront views and full kitchens.

For travellers that may be looking for something a bit different, HomeAway offers vacation rentals on nearby islands as well. Rentals on the island of Koh Samui, directly to the east, provide breathtaking beaches and more bustling towns. Phuket holiday homes are located on the other side of the Thai mainland, and on Thailand's largest island. Phuket plays an important role in Thailand's history and as such has many sights worth visiting.

Things to do

Ko Nang Yuan:

The small island of Ko Nang Yuan, just off the northwest coast of Koh Tao, is only a short taxi ride away. This picturesque inlet has three dramatic mountains, and is dotted with stunning beaches. This island is so beautiful that most of Koh Tao's postcards feature the beaches of Ko Nang Yuan.

Flying Trapeze Adventures:

For true adventure, travellers should try Flying Trapeze Adventures. Participants can experience the feeling of flying and try their hand at the circus arts. Courses are tailored to beginners, and taught by Gemma and her crew. Nightly demos begin at 7.30pm, and participants must be at least 6 years old.

Goodtime Adventures:

Hiking tours, climbing sessions, and cliff jumping are only some of the activities offered by Goodtime Adventures. Book with Goodtime Adventures through their office, which doubles as a café on Sairee Beach. While most of the island is based on maritime activities, Goodtime Adventures offers land-based activities for every type of traveller.

Ban's Diving School:

Travellers will enjoy exploring the underwater seascape around Koh Tao. Classroom sessions precede practical time in the water, and are geared toward both beginners and seasoned experts. Recently refurbished, Ban's Diving School certifies more scuba divers than any diving school worldwide.

Koh Tao Bowling and Mini-Golf:

Located halfway between Mae Hat and Chalok Ban Kao, Koh Tao Bowling & Mini Golf has several lanes. Employees reset the pins by hand rather than an automated system. The 18-hole mini-golf course is decorated with landmarks from all over the world. Ko Tao Bowling and Mini-Golf is the perfect activity for families with children.

Shambhala:

Located on the Blue Wind resort on Sairee Beach, the Shambhala yoga center is the only full-time yoga retreat on the island. Led by Kester, an experienced, energetic teacher, Shambhala offers classes for beginners and experts alike. Classes start at 300 Baht.

Weather in Koh Tao

Koh Tao lies on the eastern side of Thailand, and therefore experiences monsoon season from September to December. Vacations during this time are not recommended as the rain is nearly constant and flooding can become somewhat dangerous. During the dry and cool season – in the earliest part of the calendar year – temperatures in Thailand range from 19-31°C.

Travel to Koh Tao

The simplest way to arrive in Koh Tao is to fly into Samui Airport (USM) on the island of Koh Samui. From here, a series of ferries bring visitors to Koh Tao. On the island itself, motorbikes are available for rent, and water taxis will take travellers to beaches that are harder to reach.

well maintained unique property in quiet location with amazing views

5 of 5
Nothing was too much trouble for Rich and Coral. Rich met us from the ferry on our arrival in Koh Tao and took us up to the villa by taxi. It's well presented and organised. It's simple to run and has been recently renovated. Rich gave us an informative tour of the property and left us with a mobile phone for local use. If we had any queries or required assistance Rich and Coral were quick to respond - usually within an hour. Koh Tao is a small island and is relatively unspoilt. It is accessed by ferry only. The only cars on the island are taxis. It's easy to rent mopeds on a daily basis. The locals are friendly and keen to be helpful. We also stayed on Koh Samui and Phuket on this trip. Koh Tao was by far our favourite location. The villa is in a rural hill top location with stunning views. We enjoyed watching the tree shrews leaping around in the trees that surround the house and visits from the geckos who are quite vocal and keep the bugs at bay at night. We also saw several harmless golden tree snakes at a distance, but they were very quick to disappear as soon as they were aware of us. Unfortunately, we had very mixed weather which curtailed some of our plans for diving and snorkelling, but we had a very relaxing 10 days in the villa and we enjoyed the local restaurants. Rich and Coral left us with a list of restaurants on file and also local take-away services. Also, details and prices for a local taxi service. Everything is relatively inexpensive in Koh Tao by European standards. This is by far the best villa we have rented anywhere abroad. Rich and Coral have given considerable thought to the smooth running of the villa. The general maintenance and cleaning service was excellent and unobtrusive. we would have no hesitation in recommending the Top of the Rock Villa and may well return ourselves in the future.
