This is a great dive site where divers have a great chance of spotting Leopard sharks and other larger pelagic fish. Shark Point Phi Phi or Hin Bida is largely made up of a submerged rock that just about breaks the surface of the water. The rock then goes down to about 19 meters on its south side and then 21 meters on its north side. It should not be confused with another Phuket dive site also called Shark Point. It gets its name from the many leopard sharks that can be seen sleeping on the sandy bottom of the ocean of cruising around the edge of the reef.

The rock itself is covered in many anemones and soft corals and so divers can spot many different species of anemone fish. There are many barrel sponges that are home to scorpionfish and it is common to spot giant clams. Plume worms, Christmas tree worms, and feather stars are also found here in large numbers along the rocks wall.

As well as the leopard sharks in abundance, divers can spot boxfish, pufferfish, porcupine fish, damselfish, butterflyfish, bannerfish, parrotfish, fusiliers and blue line snappers many forming large schools around the reef. The cracks of the rock also house octopus, lobsters, and moray eels. Smaller crabs and shrimps can also be spotted in these crevices.
