By Longtail Boat
You can easily rent a Longtail boat and spend the hole day out on the sea. They take you around the island and take to the most wonderful snorkeling spots there is, and you just jump in from the boat. Mostly they stop at Mango Bay for lunch. You can also take the longtail boat over to Ko Nang Yuan from Sairee Beach and visit one of the most famous beach in the world.
This is probably the most convenient way to get around and there are plenty of rental shops all around the island. Rates start at 300 THB per day (24 hours) including incuranse for small scratches. We cooperate with Paramee Motorbike and they pick you up and take you to the shop or they deliver a bike to the house.
Koh Tao is a relatively small, hilly island with distances often no more than a few kilometers apart. Most of the main public roads are made of concrete and the private stretches often consists of a mix of concrete and dirt track. The roads are narrow and can also be steep in parts and therefore not really suited for car driving.
Taxi companies operate all over the island. Always agree on the fare with the driver before commencing the journey. Rates between our villas into the town of Maad Head should be around 500 THB. We recommend Mr Bear Taxi service which has reliable drivers and cars.
There are so many nice view points and the island is full of small beautiful beaches and bays to discover so do explore them and enjoy.
