Aow Mao

Aow Mao

Aow Mao is one of the hidden gems of Koh Tao, found on the East of Koh Tao. This is a terrific dive site for all levels of divers. Diving along both coastlines is lovely, and there are beautiful rock formations and swim throughs that hide a wide range of marine life, ranging from Harlequin Sweetlips through to huge groupers. Due to the small beach it’s also a fantastic training site, and another place we use for our shallow water skill training.
