Scuba diving is a must do when you visit Koh Tao. Visibility under water can be up to 40 meters but normally it is 15-20 meters. Avoid diving in November where the visibility can be as low as 5 meters. Diving in Koh Tao you get to experience a stunning marine life fish in all colors of the rainbow. You might even get lucky and see the famous whale shark when diving here.
Though diving is the main activity at Koh Tao, the cozy town also offers beautiful hikes, delicous food and fun nightlife. It is hard not to be tempted to stay here forever with its down-to-earth diver's vibe.
