These days reaching Koh Tao.

BEACH

Koh Tao by islands in size - so small island has Attracted by the wonderful coral reefs surrounding Ko Tao, and the quick growth in sport diving, a number of companies have started resorts for their customers, and over the years several of these resorts have become quite elegant. This was at the same time that the 1st settlers laid claim to a big portion of land on what is now known as Sairee Beach. Kohtao's climate is the whole year a perfect for a holiday. Nice weather days and a nice ocean breeze nearly everyday. For the purists, late December to late of March is the perfect holiday island was not inhabited, visited only by fisherman from near by islands when seeking shelter during storms or when in need of fresh water and supplies.

Koh Toa has changed in Thailand and what attracted people from Local fishermen and farmers realised that people from other places were building up Ko Taoto provide all these new visitors and they too instantly began businesses to satisfy the customers demands. Koh Tao is a very little island, only 22 sq km and practically half of that too steep to attain. To begin with the island was not colonized, frequented only by fishermen from nearby islands while looking for a safe haven during heavy storms or when in need of fresh water and food. It seems bizarre that such a tourist paradiseshould have been formerly earmarked as a penal island. Bizarre, but true. From 1933 until 1947 the island was home to political prisoners. Being almost seventy km from the nearby mainland meant it was moderately escape proof! Alcatraz...piece of cake. KoTao is surrounded by lots of Whale sharks & Black Tip Sharks too. Departures and arrivals were on the local coconut boats, and even then delays of several days were common practice, so back to the hammock and the world of dreams, the boat will come another day.

Koh Phangan. The first generation of todays community (began,started] settling when they brought over their families and started to harvest and cultivate the very rich. On the 18th of june 1899, His Majesty the King Chulalongkorn visited Koh Tao and left his monogram as evidence on a huge boulder at Jor Por Ror Bay near Sairee Beach. These were the twin brothers Khun Oh & Khun Ueam who reached KoTao by boat from the next island of Koh Phangan, KohTao was still under protection of the king in those days but it didn't stop those fortune seekers from claiming their stake of land. A enormous variety of fishes and some beautiful coral reefs offer divers a unique experience. Other day time activitiesnow include kite surfing and Jungle Treks.
