Known for its easy diving, clear calm water and a good variety of marine life, this beautiful tropical island offers ideal diving conditions and is located just 1hr 15mins from Phuket. The east side has mainly hard coral fringe reefs, and at the northeast tip lies the wreck of the Andaman Explorer. Set in a beautiful sand-fringed bay, the west side of the island offers underwater scenery akin to the north side with arguably better coral growth.
Beginners start their dive in a shallow bay with a sandy bottom, surrounded by colourful coral gardens. Certified divers will be dropped in deeper water (60 feet) and will enjoy exciting drift dives encountering blue-spotted stingray, shoals of barracuda, grouper, colourful reef fish and the unforgettable trigger fish.
