Koh Tao is undoubtedly the Diving Mecca of South East Asia. But this paradise island offers enough activities to keep non-divers busy throughout their stay.
The advantage of exploring Koh Tao in the daytime is that almost the whole island is off diving during the day, allowing you to explore the island in peace! Start by taking advantage of the magnificent views, a venture to the hilltops will allow you to see the entire length of Koh Phangan, descent to the deserted beaches and take advantage of refreshments offered by many beach side bars and restaurants; cover the island on foot, on bicycle, scooter, motorbike, or, if you want to escape all civilisation, by quad.
Do you want to develop your body and spirit? Switch off with a session of Yoga, Tai Chi, Pilates, Reiki, Chi Gong, massage or reflexology and relax.

Rent a sea kayak and take off on a tour of the island, complete with romantic picnic? Or rent a long tail boat and discover the fishing spots and try out the joy of free diving?
