Koh Tao - Sairee Beach, Thailand

Fundiving - Dorm room (3 days / 2 nights. Incl. 4 dives)

The diving
Out of all the diving offered on the East coast of Thailand, Koh Tao has the better of it. The island is famous for its laid back atmosphere on land. It is a cool paradise for those wanting to do their initial course or already certified divers continuing their education. It's not a lie, when said that Koh Tao is addictive. Backpackers usually end up staying for weeks.

The reef has taken some damage from the tourism, but due to a massive effort to protect and rebuild the reefs, the corals and the fish life is doing really well. Koh Tao is now offering some really good diving for divers on all levels.
Many dive sites are sheltered reefs with beautiful corals, good visibility, shallow depths and little to no current. Sites are reached in less than 20 minutes by boat. Deeper dive sites with pelagic marine life can be found a short 45 minute boat ride away. All year round lucky divers are encountering Whale sharks, Reef Sharks, Rays and Turtles.

Location – Sairee Beach
Koh Tao in general is packed with different bays and beaches that are well worth visiting with your snorkeling gear. The island itself has a great size in terms of exploration, and it is easy to get around on a scooter. However, if you want a young and very vibrant vibe, Sairee beach is the place to be! The atmosphere is buzzing with hippie happy backpackers hanging out in the cafes, the beach bars and obviously on the beach itself… which is the longest and most popular beach on the island. (you will see why!)

Your accommodation - dorm room
Is right next to the dive center, and in the middle of Sairee beach. Walk out of your room, and within 15 seconds (of walking really slowly) you will be standing on the beach, next to the dive center. The dorm rooms are just above the walking street of Sairee beach. You can look down at the dive center and the beach. If you threw a rock, you could probably hit the beach from the balcony? (that was NOT a challenge! Just a thought...).

Your room
Is a dorm room with 6 single beds, and a cooling fan. There is a little balcony and a larger bathroom with a hot (nice!) shower and the room is daily cleaned. The room is simple, but clean, comfortable and right where you want it, when you come back from diving and in need of a good nap!
