Koh Tao Activities
There’s plenty of Koh Tao activities to keep every type of traveller or holiday maker fully entertained. Maybe you thought that Koh Tao was only for scuba divers with nothing else to do. Well you’re mistaken. There’s a magnitude of other Koh Tao activities, whether you prefer things at a leisurely pace or prefer taking things to the extreme. How about heading to the hills of Koh Tao. Hiking is a popular activity, with several viewpoints highlighting the gorgeous panoramic views of the island. For a more thrilling adventure in the hills, one may want to try and rock climbing or even rent a dirt-bike and try the motorbike track for an adrenaline kick.
If you enjoy high flying, then a flying trapeze has been set up on Koh Tao for the brave at heart. Flying Trapeze is an absolutely unforgettable experience. Anyone can do it no matter what your age or fitness level. For something less adventurous, but equally fun, try Koh Tao’s mini golf and bowling centre. For those wishing to integrate further into the Koh Tao local culture, volunteer activities are possible. Animal lovers can volunteer at the Koh Tao Animal Clinic and spend some time with furry friends. Beach clean-ups above and below water are often organised and free for volunteers. Ask your nearest dive shop about a clean-up schedule. Finally, if you love children, you can volunteer at the local school and help out with teaching. The best way to integrate into Koh Tao is knowing the locals, and these are sure ways to get you involved.
Scuba Diving is not the only water-based sport you can do whilst you stay on Koh Tao – there’s snorkelling, freediving, windsurfing and kayaking. If you much prefer to keep your Koh Tao activities at the surface of the water than underneath it, then fear not, Koh Tao has plenty to offer. A great way to explore the different beaches and beautiful bays around Koh Tao is by hiring a kayak for the day. The calm waters around Koh Tao are perfect for cruising around the island at your leisure and rocking up at where ever takes your fancy. Kayaks can be hired for a small fee at most of the busy beach areas.
