Ko Tao  Information:

Koh Tao  (Turtle Island) is an island in Thailand and forms part

of the Chumphon Archipelago on the western shore of the

Gulf of Thailand. It covers an area of about 21 km².

Administratively it forms a district of Surat Thani Province. 

The economy of the island is almost exclusively centred on tourism,

especially scuba diving. 


The island is an important breeding ground for hawksbill

and green turtles. The development of tourism has negatively

impacted the health of these grounds, but a breeding programme

organised in 2004 by the Royal Thai Navy and KT-DOC, a coalition

of local scuba diving centres, has reintroduced hundreds of

juvenile turtles to the island's ecosystem.


The island is well known for scuba diving and snorkeling,

as well as hiking, rock climbing, and bouldering.
