Where I stayed
Koh Tao is beautful! The Black Tip Dive Resort had a driver waiting for me at the pier which was nice because I didn't have to hassle with a taxi
My bungalow at Black Tip wa rustic but nice. The only downside was the hilly walk to the water which was a trek in the heat. I had planned on getting my scuba certification but changed my mind at the last minute and decided to wait for a time when Terra and I can do it together. I snorkled right off the beach at Black Tip and saw some really cool marine life. Unfortunately I did bring MY snorkle gear from home and for the price to rent, I just went ahead and bought new. Oh well... I then caught the taxi back to the pier where I rented an ATV. There are more scooters than ATV's but I opted for the more expensive ATV because I would have to make my way back to Black Tip for the night and the roads weren't paved and in really bad shape. Otherwise I would have gotten a scooter.
Since I wouldn't be doing the scuba class, there was no reason for me to stay at Black Tip since its pretty secluded (which at times is a good thing) and I wanted to check out the rest of the island. I headed out on my ATV to check out Sairee Beach and see if anyone had any bungalows available.
