After a great day at the beach you can enjoy a cold beer and chill out at the bar of the Haad Tien Beach Resort.

It seems wierd that too rugged to escape proof! Alcatraz...


Koh Tao to Suratthani or Chumporn meant to political prisoners. Strange, but true, from 1933 until 1947 the island housed political prisoners. Being located approximately 70 kilometres from Suratthani or Chumporn meant it was very hard to escape from! Alcatraz...piece of cake. In 1947, then Khun A-Paiwong, Thailand's then Prime Minister, asked for and received a Royal Pardon for Koh Tao's prisoners and with thanks to a gracious act by The King of Thailand. The given name KoToa means Turtle Island; many say that the designation is due to the islands appearance which is meant to appear to be an upside down turtle whilst many others maintain it is from the day's when the water nearby the island was rich with turtles and the island was their breeding grounds. From the days of being a prison camp, through to its current development, Turtle island has retained it's magic, though it now caters for everybody's tastes and budgets.

Koh Phangan. Surrounded by 4x4. Kohtao has a lot of popular things to do one being resorts for their clients, and over the years many of these resorts changed into a quite lavish. During the last 13 years Koh Tao has changed in many ways as it strived to become one of the foremost dive islands in Thailand, bringing in all levels of water lovers and divers alike.

Koh Phangan. It has much to offer but hasn't lost what attracted travellers here in the first place, its still a little piece of tropical paradisefor all to share and enjoy. Around 1947, Khun A-Paiwong, Thailands Prime Minister at the time, asked for & received a royal pardon for the islands inmates and thanks to a gracious act by His Majesty the King. They were repatriated and conveyed to Suratthani on the nearby mainland and the island was uninhabited once more. This was the same year that the initial settlers started to claim a big piece of terrain on what is now identified as Sai Ree Beach. These were the two brothers Khun Ueam and Khun Oh who came to Ko Taoby a boat from the neighbouring island of KohPhangan. The most popular of the beach, Sairee Beachalways are crowded with sun worshippers but there's also quieter, more secluded bays and beaches.
