Spotlight Koh Tao 2023

We are proud to announce the dates for our 2nd annual Spotlight Koh Tao event! 

Following the huge success of Spotlight Koh Tao 2022, we are delighted to announce the second year of our island-wide conservation event.

We look forward to welcoming back visitors and esteemed guests from Thailand and around the world to join our environmentally-themed celebration.

During recent years, there have been times when it has felt like the earth is standing still. But mother nature never rests. In these times, more than ever, it has been important for the Koh Tao community to drive forward with land and sea revitalization projects, so that the generations to follow can enjoy the beauty and natural wonder of our island for years to come.

For decades, Koh Tao has enjoyed a well-deserved reputation as a world-class diving destination. However, our coral reefs have suffered from degradation due to both natural and anthropogenic disturbances, including coastal development, sedimentation, destructive fishing, and tourism-related activities. To combat these destructive forces, our environmentally-focused local community has joined forces with private businesses and government organizations to develop coral reef rehabilitation projects.
