This is a good relatively calm, dive site with many different areas to explore including swim throughs and canyons. This dive site is located in the Similan Islands and it gets its name from the rocks that are above the water. They are said to resemble the shape of a turtle and they make for a great landmark indicated the dive site. Although divers can be treated with sightings of turtles, the name of the dive site does not correlate with the chances of spotting turtles.

The site is made up soft and hard coral fields as well as huge boulder formations. The sandy bottom is at around 25 meters with most of the hard coral being at around 15 meters. Unlike other dive sites in the area, it has generally mild currents and so is a nice and easy dive for divers of all levels. The boulder section of the reef, contains many swim throughs and some canyons as well.

Blue spotted stingrays are very common on this dive site and also along the sandy bottom are large numbers of garden eels. The boulders and reef are home to many marine species including honeycomb eels, triggerfish, trevally, parrotfish, groupers, moray eels, angelfish, snappers, sweetlips, angelfish, and butterfly fish. The site is also used as a night dive as larger lobsters and crabs can be seen in huge numbers.
