Koh Tao – Diver’s Paradise.
That’s what they say. Because you only need a few flaps with your fins to get from Sairee Beach, the most popular beach at Koh Tao’s west coast, to the first corals. That’s ideal especially for students – there are so many diving schools that really everybody should strike gold.
After I got certified in Mexico I was dying to descend again. Once we’d chosen to go to Thailand we searched for our first destination online. In the end we chose Koh Tao as this island seemed to be perfect for us: Patrick could get certified and I could refresh my skills – after all I hadn’t been under water for half a year and I didn’t have a lot of routine yet.
