    Have you looked at the KoTao section of the site? There's sub sections for the individual beaches...

    October will be fairly busy, but as November has the poorest conditions for divers, the trade will be dropping off a little.

    Hi Bob,

    Perhaps around the southeast corner of the island -- somewhere like Sai Thong is a very chilled out spot, and I believe there's a dive shop affiliated with them...

    Bobjim, I'd recommend southern part of island - Chalok bay. Black Tip is a good place, but very hard to reach. I thing, sometimes you will want to visit shops / internet-cafe etc :)
    I stayed in Chalok in the May 2005. Quiet place, but with 7-11 and all the amenities. Concerning diveshop, I can recommend Stingray Divers (situated on Chalok). I taken AOWD, deep diver course and several fun dives from them, while staying in nearest J.P. Resort :)
