Haad Tien Beach Resort is the ideal spot for chilling and unwinding after partying the night away.

Koh Toa and when improved and bays.


Koh Toa some companies have become one being a gracious act Straight after the terrible events of the December 2004 Tsunami, the type of visitors visiting the island ferries were disgorging people with suitcases, not backpacks, laptops not guitars, and what is this; trainers not flip-flops?!, and some had children too. Consequently, as its reputation for gorgeous nature, unique marinelife and amazing landscapes got bigger, better access was available as soon as safer constructed were brought in to cope with the large number of back packers being attracted to the island.

Koh Tao's very hard without a result as evidence of Koh Every now and again progress can be a wonderful thing, fortunately Koh Tao has maintained its relaxed atmosphere, ]it is,it's] still nigh on impossible to find a crowded beach. Kho Koh Tao, and the expansion in recreational scuba diving, a number of companies established a scuba resorts have become quite developed places. Koh Toa is a very small island, only 21 square kilometres with half of that too rugged to access. In the begining the island was not colonized, frequented only by fisherman from nearby islands while on the lookout for a safe haven during thunderstorms or when in need of fresh water and food. It seems peculiar that such a tourist island housed political prisoners. Being just about seventy kilometers from the nearby mainland meant it was comparatively escape proof! Alcatraz...piece of cake. Ko Taois surrounded by loads of Whale sharks & Black Tip Sharks as well.

Koh Tao has a top-security prison. The island was still under Royal Patronage in those days, but it didn't thwart these fortune seekers from staking their claim. The very first generation of today's community started settling when they brought their families to KoTao and began to cultivate and yield the rich soil and natural resources on offer. Despite it still being under Royal Patronage, plots of land were claimed, and vacated for coconut plantations. You can still see lots of proof of the very large plantations throughout the island. Strange, but true, from 1933 until 1947 Koh Tao was home to political prisoners. Being situated approximately 65 kilometres from Suratthani or Chumporn meant it was hard to escape from! Alcatraz...piece of cake. It seems wierd that such a tourist tropical paradiseshould have been first setup as a prison. Despite Koh Tao still being under Royal Patronage, plots of land were claimed, and cleared for coconut plantations. You will still see lots of evidence of the huge plantations all over the island.
