I went there on June 2014, took OW & AOW courses. Crews and my instructor are awesome and friendly. The beach in front of sunshine divers is very peaceful. You can save more budget here with low cost room. (Reasonable price for rooms at sunshine1 & sunshine2 and good reasons to spend money for diving course here 5 stars PADI... More

Upon arriving, we were picked up at the pier and transported to the gorgeous beach front diving shop. The classrooms sit on the beach with one of the best views of the island. I have found myself drawn to sunshine during the daytimes even when I am not studying or diving, everyone is so approachable and friendly that the atmosphere... More

We stay at sunshine 2 and we dive with the dive club on the beach. A++ Friendly staff low budget bungallows 400b for a night and free during class. Before diving we check with each other club and for us its was perfect. They combine 1 Open and 1 Advance class so we could dive together 3 times.

Very friendly teacher and staff, we were 4 people at the open water course, had a lot of fun and always felt save. Nice place to stay with some bars and restaurants along the beach. You can find a spot to chill and relax, but you can also meet people and go out for a drink.

Having travelled extensively throughout Asia for the past few weeks, it was wonderful to find a beautiful, peaceful cove to soak up the sun, read a book and enjoy a few dives. I heard amazing stories about Koh Tao and Chalok Baan Kao in particular - a step out of the busy scene but also close enough to get a... More

I liked the personal approach and the environment. My teachers were really great, as well as the accomodation. After getting my padi open water, I directly went for adventure diving :) As I met some nice people, I went for fun diving on my last day

I participated in the February IDC run by Sunshine and Bans Diving resorts and it was fantastic. Both Nat Hunt and Guillaume Fargues were extremely knowledgeable and went out of their way to provide extra help. Every aspect was highly organized and well presented, ensuring that every candidate received enough attention and strengthened their skills to a level well beyond... More

My partner and me finally decided to do an open water course. It took us very long to do this decision as we were a little bit scared about this underwater thing. But everyone at Sunshine, especially Katharina, took away our worries and swaped it with confidence and curiosity. We had such a great time doing our open water. Everything... More
