This is a lovely little dive site going to a depth of about 18 meters. The visibility is normally around 15 meters and the current is normally quite calm.

It can be found on the North West side of Phi Phi Leh and it is a wall dove with many soft corals. Some have said that this is some of the best soft coral formation in Thailand. As it is relatively shallow, all level of divers can enjoy the colourful coral on show. Divers first pass a sandy area, which leads to the wall.

Amongst the corals there are many unusual marine species including Ornate Ghost Pipefish and the Tiger Tail Seahorse, which hide amongst the soft coral. It takes a certain patience to find them but it is a search well worth the effort.

To the left of the wall, there are some boulders that are home to moray eels as well as Blue Spotted Stingrays. Coral banded Sea Snakes can also be found here and in other places on the dive. There are some swim throughs with some lovely purple and red soft coral, covered in small glassfish and it is easy to spot trevally and mackerel fish as well. Divers should also see angelfish, many juvenile fish, barracuda, scorpion fish, yellow snapper and Hawksbills turtles and if divers look closely, they will be able to spot the ghost pipefish. Sharks spotted here include black tipped reef sharks and leopard sharks.
