The most visited of the bay, Sairee Beach most of the time are filled up with sun worshippers but there's also less visited, more hidden beaches and bays.
The settlers lives mainly consisted of harvesting coconuts, growing vegetables and fruit and of course nourishing themselves with fishing. In those days reaching Koh Taorequired a treacherous boat ride from nearby islands or the mainland, if and when the weather& seas permitted, but the inhabitants continued to increase steadily all the same, even when the simple life was hard and without a large amount return.
They were all pardoned and transported to Suratthani on the mainland and the island was a desert island yet again.
A culture shock to most people, but generally the island reacted with a passion to these new visitors, over the following months much change has taken place, new resorts, with more facilities, a new array of restaurants offering different food from all over the globe.
Occasionally progress can be a wonderful thing, it's a good thing KoTao has kept its chilled atmosphere, ]it is,it's] still nigh on impossible to find a crowded beach.
Kho Tao consists of a amazing paradise infringed with shaddy palms and crystal clear turquoise waters.
Ko Tao now has 24 hour electricity on the islandtoo and finally they have had a water reservoir built to make sure that even in the dry periods there is enough water for all.
Without question, Kho Tao has some of most postcard like beaches anywhere in SE Asia.
