Koh Tao is a real divers’ paradise, well, any water sport to be exact but diving is the life there. Mae Haad Pier is located just in the middle of the town and from the first steps you take it immerses you into a very vibrant place. You will find bars, restaurants, stalls and lots of people mulling around there. We used Airbnb to find a place to stay since hotels can be very pricey and chose a great location right in the middle of town. Just a 5 minute walk to the Mae Haad Beach, lots of scooter rentals, crepe stalls and my personal favorite, an awesome bakery with fresh and warm buns every morning????
