It seems bizarre that such a tourist paradiseshould have been firstly set up as a top-security prison. Bizarre, but true. From about 1933 until 1947 the island was home to political prisoners. Being nearly seventy km from the nearby mainland meant it was fairly escape proof! Alcatraz...piece of cake. KoTao is surrounded by a lot of Whale sharks and Black Tip Sharks as well.

Mesmerised by the tropical beaches, the back of beyond aura, and of course the cheap living, backpackers soon arrived in droves.
