Koh Tao Activities

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

Time for Relaxation

Once you have finished your scuba diving course you can relax at one of the many great beaches such as Aow Leuk, Tanote Bay, Freedom beach or Jansom beach. 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; beautiful surroundings and a place or two to eat or drink and relax.

Need something more adventurous? There is rock climbing, abseiling, hiking trails and more.

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 workout? Then try Koh Tao Crossfit,  they have day, weekly or monthly passes.
