Most popular dive sites

One of the main diving areas is Koh Haa, which is formed by five islands and offers a large variety of unique dive sites like the Chimney, Twin Cathedral, or Koh Ha Lagoon. The scenery is impressive, including coral-covered boulders, stunning caverns, and spectacular swim-throughs, as well as amazing hard-coral gardens. Other popular diving areas are Koh Rok Nok and Koh Rok Nai, which are characterized by shallow reefs and clear waters. Because of the shallow reefs, they are very suitable for snorkeling outings. They are enchanting, with pristine hard corals and untouched local dive sites such as Koh Mook, Koh Wean, Koh Kradan, and Hin Nok. These dive sites offer a vast diversity of marine macro life. Some very popular dive sites are Hin Daeng (average depth of 25m/82ft, max. depth of 45m/148ft) and Hin Muang (average depth of 25m/82ft, max. depth of 70m/230ft), which are quite close to each other. These are two submerged rocks that are covered with soft corals, anemones, and gorgonians, and are rated as some of the best dive spots in the world. Huge schools of fish can be spotted here.
