Scuba diving in Hin Muang
Hin Muang is located near Hin Daeng and boasts the the highest vertical wall in Thai waters. This is one of the top 10 dive site in the world.

The site itself is a long narrow ridge which rises from the ocean floor at a depth of approximately 65m/213ft and goes to its highest point of approximately 8m/26ft. It can be accessed by a permanent buoy line near the shallowest point. The diver travels along the walls and steep reefs that the site consists of, including the peaks providing cleaner stations where manta rays and whale sharks swim very close to be groomed by the smaller reef fishes.
