DIVING AND SNORKELING

Koh Phangan also has lovely sites around the island which are perfect for both beginners and trained divers.

From easy dives off the beach to longer dive trips by boat, you can experience the world of tropical diving. This year, we have already seen some big fish such as groupers, schools of adult barracuda and some small harmless sharks.

Local dive operators can offer introductory (experience) dives, beginners courses (usually 4 days) and further training through advanced up to professional level. Many of Koh Phangan's sites are well suited to training purposes with colorful fish and also smooth, sandy bottoms for painless and environmentally friendly learning.

For the trained diver, the west coast of Koh Phangan offers the best diving with some fine hard coral reefs at depth up to 20 metres. There are also some islets which offer small walls, soft and filtered coral, and large schools of fishes.

Dive trips are also available to further sites such as Koh Wao Yai (in the north of Ang Thong National Marine Park) where the water is so clear that you can see as far as 20 metres away or the famous Hin Bai (Sail Rock). Here the dives are deeper with a great range of marine life, spectacular underwater scenery and chance to meet bigger fish -even whales or sharks can be encountered.

For snorkeling sites, you can find almost everywhere in Koh Phangan (except the east coast). The shoreline of Koh Phangan is rocky with some sandy beaches and a wide variety of coral and tropical fish. The water is warm and pleasant all year long, make you snorkel for hours.

One of the best sites is in Mae Haad Bay, where living coral can be found just below the surface a few meters out. Make your own choice and enjoy nature as you like. But please take care of our treasure, nature lovers respect the beauty of the earth.
