Koh Tao is renowned for world-class diving, and over 50 spectacular dive sites surround the island. To support our thriving diving economy and prevent damage to the coral reefs and marine ecosystem, mooring buoys are frequently installed and maintained. The use of dedicated mooring buoys protects divers and prevents damage caused by boats dropping anchors over the reef.
Koh Tao is well known as a tropical haven with spectacular beaches and dive sites. However, constant effort is required to keep them in pristine condition. Debris builds up through a combination of natural and manmade factors, including ocean pollution, land runoff, and irresponsible trash disposal practices. To combat these destructive forces, the environmentally-focused local community organizes regular underwater and beach clean-up events.
