Maybe, you are thinking by now Koh Tao is only for divers with nothing else to do. Well, you are mistaken.
The good thing about divers is, that they spent most of their time in the water. So you could start the day with the obvious and relax on a quiet, empty beach.
If that gets a bit boring you can get active in many ways: water skiing, wake boarding, kayaking, wind surfing or sailing lessons.
You can do rock climbing, trekking, mountain biking, play mini golf or Petanque & learn the flying trapeze.
Why not charter a real sailing yacht for a customized day tour or rent a longtail boat to go snorkelling in one of the many bays around the island and getting a first glimpse of the spectacular underwater world or visit the neighbouring little island Nangyuan, with its unique triple beach.
Stay in shape at the professional gyms, take Thai boxing lessons or let off steam at submission fights.
Explore the sights & heights on foot or mountain bike. The stunning views are totally worth the effort.
After all these activities in the hot climate you feel probably exhausted.
A traditional Thai massage should not be missed. It will relieve your strained body & revive your spirit. An aromatic oil, herbal stamp or hot lava stone massage plus a herbal steam bath will relax and add to your well-being.
Why not develop your inner strength and heal body, mind & spirit? Tai Chi & Yoga are practised & taught daily.
You see, the turtle has a lot to offer for non-divers after all.
