This dive site is very close to Ko Rok Nai and so has similar great dive conditions. These two islands are part of Ko Lanta’s National Marine Park and so they have some very well preserved dive sites. They are both named after the Rok, a small animal in Thailand, which can be spotted on both of the islands. Divers can also spot giant monitor lizards on the beaches, some of which can get to more than a meter in length.
The dive site is relatively shallow and has a large diversity of marine life. It has some beautiful corals forming a coral garden that awaits curious divers. These are mainly made up of soft corals such as Gorgonian fans, and these are interspersed with hard corals.
It has a maximum depth of 20 meters and the abundance of coral, with many nooks and crannies, makes it a great spot for some muck diving. It is also a great spot for beginners, and for student divers. The reef slopes down gently to a depth of 20 meters where it merges with the sandy bottom.
There are many puffer fish at this site, and snappers join them, as do anemone fish. On the outside of the reef, it is also common to see white tip reef sharks and eagle rays. If you are a lucky diver, you may even spot a Hawksbill Turtle.
