Black Tip Dive Resort
Peaceful diver village

Black Tip Dive Resort offers a variety of clean and comfortable accommodation to fit a variety of budgets, although their prices are perhaps high relative to elsewhere on the island.
Geared primarily toward divers and students of its PADI courses, Black Tip gives substantial discounts to divers, making for much more reasonable room rates. The bungalows are up the hill from the beach and are scattered around a lovely garden landscape. The staff seem a little indifferent towards helping you. Kayaks (100B/hour) and snorkels (50B/day) can be rented for exploring the offshore coral reefs and rocky headlands of Ko Tao's isolated east coast. Black Tip also has a laidback restaurant and a swimming pool -- a little greenish -- which is often used for diver training. A good relaxed spot for divers.
