You can explore Koh Tao’s bays and coral reefs at your own pace and you can reach most of them very easily by scooter.

Let's get physical

Feel like you need some physical activity?  Why not rent a stand-up paddleboard or kayak?  The sea conditions around Koh Tao make this ideal with low to zero waves and weak to mild currents around the island for most of the year.  You can rent them from most of the beaches for 30 minutes or an hour or longer if you feel adventurous.

Being a small tropical island, Koh Tao has a lot of water-based activities available. 

Other Activities in Koh Tao

Other activities in Koh Tao

Once you have finished your scuba diving course there are many other activities in Koh Tao that you can do.  Relax at one of the many great beaches such as Aow Leuk, Tanote Bay, Freedom Beach or Jansom Beach.  You can work on your tan and read book. Unfortunately, you now have to pay to get to most beaches when access used to be free.  But, all offer azure blue waters great for swimming or snorkeling.  With beautiful surroundings and a place or two to eat or drink and relax.  Not really activities in Koh Tao, but you are on holiday after all so why not enjoy.

Need something more adventurous? There is rock climbing, bouldering, abseiling, hiking trails and more. Plus snorkeling trips around the island, but diving is better.

If you are in to sport fishing they are a few boats that go far way from the dive sites.  Just ask at your reception.

If you have the energy to burn why not practice yoga or work up a sweat at the Muay Thai Training Gym. They have regular fight nights each month where you can watch several fights of different weight categories. It makes for a great night out.

Fancy a real workout? Then try Koh Tao Crossfit,  they have daily, weekly or monthly passes.  It doesn’t matter  if you have never done it before, they have coaches ready to help you. And there are 3 other different gyms that you can try.
