Mango Bay


Situated at the north end of Koh Tao and only accessible by boat this picturesque coral bay is normally the first dive site student divers are taken to. With the entrance being done from the beach it is no wonder this is the perfect site for PADI Discover Scuba Diving, PADI Scuba Diver & Open Water Course and even some PADI Adventure Dives or PADI Advanced Open Water dives can be completed here. To start your diving experience the gentle sloping nature of this dive site makes for easy equalization and introductory skills.


Even experienced scuba divers find this an interesting site being one of the few places in Koh Tao where you can find Sea Horses. Hiding among the small pieces of drift wood, and bamboo in the sandy shallows, looking like small leaves swaying on the bottom, these delicate little creatures only seem to come to life when approached. Also on the sandy bottom you can find some very big Hermit Crabs, and the near impossible to see Peacock Sole.


Mango Bay has beautiful coral running down both sides of the bay, and a large patch of coral in the centre. This makes Mango Bay one of the few dive sites which are perfect for non divers wishing to accompany divers on a great day out. Snorkelling is fantastic around here with Sergeant Majors, Parrot Fish and Thick Lipped Mullet just a few inches from the surface, as well as the colourful hard and soft corals to be found. As with most the dive sites around Koh Tao Mango Bay has a vast array of fish species and is a great addition to any log book.
