Big Fishes Reef Wall
This dive site has many times been listed as one of the top ten dive sites in the world. It's situated about 30 nautical miles off Koh Lanta and with its diverse and abundant marine life, you are sure not to be disappointed. Located only 500 metres away from Hin Daeng, dive centers usually offer a one day trip diving two spectacular dive sites.
Hin Muang (Purple Rock) is usually the first of the two dives, due to its depth. You descend down the buoy line and once at 12m come across the top of the pinnacle completely covered in purple soft corals (hence it’s name), continuing down to a maximum depth of 70m, this has the deepest drop off in Thai waters.
Hin Muang is a 200 metre long pinnacle that runs east to west. Pelagics are not uncommon. As many as 6 to 7 giant manta ray can be seen at a time, and they can remain for the entire length of your dive sometimes. Other big fish to see are the great barracuda, leopard sharks, reef sharks and giant moray eels. Visibility can reach up to a stunning 30m. Turning your back to the reef and looking out into the blue can be a rewarding experience, it is out there that you may see the approach of a Whale Shark, the largest fish in the ocean!!!!
