West of Eden is a relatively quiet dive site that has some excellent coral and marine life. Sometimes known as West of Six, West of Eden is a dive site located within the National Park of the Similan Islands and is very good dive that is very typical of the area. Most divers head to the more popular, East of Eden dive site, and this dive site was explored as an alternative to the overcrowded eastern spot.

The site is made up of some granite boulders that have some crevices, canyons, small caves, and other nooks and crannies for divers to explore. The boulders are covered in many different types of coral including sponges, soft corals, and many Gorgonian sea fans.

Currents are normally very good and do not get above a moderate level and the depth of the site goes down to about 30 meters making the site good for divers of all levels. Although the currents are mild, the dive can make an excellent drift dive as it allows divers to see many of the bommies, coral gardens, and parts of the boulder. Divers will need to stop to explore any interesting parts of the boulder.

Marine life found here includes black tip reef sharks, and white tip reef sharks at deeper parts of the dive, glassfish in large schools, red and purple fire gobies, stonefish, frogfish, ghost pipefish, nudibranchs, and Hawksbill turtles. It is also common to see pelagic fish such as groupers, trevally, and barracuda, cruising in the blue water surrounding the reef.
