Black Tip Dive Resort and Watersport Center Review

Located on Tanote Bay, on Koh Tao's eastern shore, this resort makes a perfect base for snorkeling because of the colorful coral, the interesting fish, and even the small black-tip reef sharks that cruise around at sunset. Discounts are available if you sign up for a dive course, so this is an ideal place to do your scuba certification. Set in a nicely landscaped garden on the hill above the bay, the accommodations are a stylish blend of natural wood and painted, curvaceous concrete walls. A pickup-truck taxi makes the run to Mae Haad five times daily, and a taxi-boat for trips around the island is available from the Mt. Reef Resort at the south end of the bay.
