Approximately 8 km’s South/East from Phi Phi Don you will find a small rocky outcrop breaking the surface by only 1 meter, Below lies Hin Bida also known as Phi Phi Shark Point. Rising dramatically from a sandy seabed at a maximum of 18 meters the site consists of a small rocky reef covered in a carpet of anemones and colourful soft corals. This is one dive site that truly lives up to it’s name with sightings of Leopard Sharks almost guaranteed.
The dive site is also home to a huge variety of tropical marine life Lionfish, large Groupers and Coral trout can all be seen feeding on the large schools of Glassfish that cling to the reef for protection. Cuttlefish and Octopus also found here on most dives and Barracuda, Tuna and Trevally regularly patrol the blue water around the reef looking for their next meal. The giant Whale shark can be seen passing through during the high season migrating northwards, all making this a fantastic dive site to add to your logbook. This dive site can also be accessed from koh Lanta.
