Although Chumphon is a little known diving spot; its boasts 50 islands with unlimited options for diving. It has an abundant marine life, swimthroughs and caves.

Divers can also enjoy unspoilt diving, as mass development and tourism has not yet been undertaken in Chumphon unlike Phuket and Pattaya. Although, this island lacks the visibility of Andaman, divers can dive well provided that they choose the proper time of the year and they can have a good diving experience whether they are a pro or a novice diver.
