snorkeling

You can snorkel with Master Divers or book one of the many trips available – just ask at your resort of nearest travel agent. You can hire your own longtail too which will take you where you want to go or you can jump on a taxi to one of Koh Taos beaches.

10 Pin Bowling and Mini Golf

10 Pin Bowling, Mini Golf & driving range

Just a few minutes along the main road from Mae Haad to Chalock Baan Kao, Steve runs a 10 Pin Bowling alley and mini golf too. This is great for a bit of a giggle and something different – its open all day and evening too (apart from Monday) – so you can catch a game whenever you want! Steve has just opened a driving range too for those of you who take your golf a little more seriously. If all that putting has worked up and appetite then Steve’s restaurant serves DIY pizza, chill con carne and great lasange too.

Captain Nemos Pool Hall

Captain Nemos Pool Hall

Wanna play pool?.. then Captain Nemos Pool Hall is where you need to go. It’s in Mae Haad. Walk up the hill from the Safety Stop and Cafe Del Sol and Nemos is half way up on the left hand side.

Kayaking

Kayaking

Kayaks can be rented from Master Divers and most beaches on Koh Tao. We particularly like kayaking from Master Divers and exploring the southern bays all the way around to the headland just before Chalok. More information about beaches can be found here.

Walking

Walking

There are some great walks, just remember to set off early and take plenty of water and money to buy more if heading to a beach. Leaving Sairee by the road that runs passed the boxing stadium, you have a number of walks to make. The first one is sign posted off to the right after te boxing stadium and just as the road starts to turn to the left and get steeper. This leads to Leam Tien – it’s our favourite walk as it’s quite leafy and shady. There is a monster hill though and there aren’t really views until you get there. The resort here closed around half a year ago which means the road has overgrown but still passable. There are no facilities when you get there so be sure to take enough water and a snack too. However there is a road leaving this one on the right – if you are adventurous then you can follow this to a view point. The roads to Hin Wong and Mango Bay are found by just continuing on the road passed the boxing stadium. Mango Bay is a sign posted left turn and for Hin Wong you carry straight on. Theres also a lovely coastal walk from Master Divers which explores the coastline almost all the way to Chalock Baan Kao.

Yoga

Yoga

There are always yoga classes to go to here on Koh Tao but their locations do move around. If you are coming here then you can ask us for an update otherwise, head to Blue Wind – just walk a few mins passed the 7-11 on the main road and you will find them on the left hand side. This one never moves!

Muay Thai (thai boxing) and Gym

Muay Thai (thai boxing) and Gym

Leave the 7-11 on the main road in Sairee and walk up the hill. After about 10-15mins you’ll find the stadium and gym. There are regular fights, watch out for flyers, regular classes and longer courses too. The gym has different options for you too – so pop in.

Zipline

island to island zip line

Fly between the two peaks of Koh Nangyuan on a zipline. What better location could there be to fuel your adrenaline and fly across the beautiful waters around Koh Nangyuan. Trips leave both morning and afternoon and can include time on the island to relax and snorkel too. Contact Charly and Tim at Good Time Adventures on Sairee Beach for more information.

Splashdance
