Koh Tachai is an island in the world famous Similan Islands. It is an idyllic location in the Andaman Sea with white sandy beaches and azure crystal clear water. The island is located 40km due west from Koh Phra Thong.
Koh Tachai is unique in Thai waters in that it holds equal appeal for both divers and snorkelers. Scuba divers have the opportunity to observe sharks/mantas off Koh Tachai's pinnacle whilst snorkelers enjoy the calm shallow bay. The beaches at Koh Tachai are spectacular with the white sand and clear water. For these reasons it is often referred to as the Maldives of Thailand.
The bay tapers off several hundred metres away from east coast of Koh Tachai. Here the water colour on the surface changes from turquoise to the typical deep blue signifying deeper waters. The scuba diving in this area is still relatively easy and there are greater chances to see larger animals such as leopard sharks resting on the bottom or the occasional manta ray passing by
