Similan Islands diving sites

'Similan' means nine. It refers to the nine islands that are lined up from north to south about 70km. from the mainland. Very clear water from the Indian Ocean bathes these granite islands and, without a doubt, provides the islands with the most beautiful beaches and underwater tourist attractions in Thailand.

The marine environment is well protected by the national park. The charm of the soft corals and sea fans make the area one of the top ten most beautiful dive sites-aboard boats ready to serve you, no one can deny that this archipelago is in a league of its own.

The most interesting dive sites are the underwater rocks such as Shark Rock, where Silvertip Sharks are often found; this site also has a beautiful and exciting wall dive. Christmas Point is another site, and its large overlaid rocks form crevices that are full of beautiful sea fans and soft corals; it's another world. For those who love big fish the choice must be Hin Pusar, its underwater rocks are at a depth of 70 metres, a very challenging site. For those who prefer something more relaxing, the soft corals and sea fans at East of Eden and Island No. 5 should not be missed.
