The Sunset and coupled with an idyllic golden sand beach on Koh Tao`s only offer a magnificent sea views.  
Ko Tao is a very small island, only 20 sq km and just about half of that too harsh to get to. At first the islandwas not colonized, visited only by fisherman from nearby islands while seeking refuge during thunderstorms or when they require clean water and supplies. It seems peculiar that such a tourist paradise should have been firstly earmarked as a penal island. Odd, but true. From about 1933 until 1947 the islandwas home to political prisoners. Being virtually seventy kilometers from the mainland meant it was reasonably escape proof! Alcatraz...piece of cake. KoTao is surrounded by loads of Whale sharks and Black Tip Sharks too. Native farmers and fishermen grasped that business people from outside the island were developing Koh Taoto accommodate the needs of all these new clients and they too immediately started to businesses to fulfil all the customers demands. Local farmers and fishermen realised that major business people from other places were developing their island to accommodate to the needs of all these new customers and they too, immediately began to open their own businesses to fulfill all the customers demands. Not like a few years ago, guests can find today everything from economical straightforward wooden huts with thatched roofs to stylish exclusive villas with a private facilities and swimming pool.

In those days getting to KoTao required a treacherous boat journey from the main land or near by islands, if and when the seas &weatherpermitted but the population continued to grow firmly all the same, even when simple life was hard without much reward. Koh Taonow has twenty four hour electricity on the islandtoo and finally they have had a water reservoir made to make sure that even in the dry season there is enough water for all. Arrivals & departures were on the local coconut boats, and even then delays of several days were common practice, so back to the hammock and a world of dreams, the boat will come another day. At first this small islandwas not inhabited, visited only by fisherman from near by islands when looking for shelter during storms at sea or when in need of fresh water and supplies.
