Koh Haa 3

This is second largest island at Koh Haa. The lagoon and a small, soft white-sand beach are found on its east side, whilst the west side has a sloping reef exposed to the open sea. Hence, snorkelling is the main activity on the east side, and diving to the west. The north and south tips of the island have steeper drop-offs that are covered in both soft and hard corals. There is a large rock covered in coral towards the southern end of the west side which is a great place to find nudibranchs.

Whilst diving on the west side, keep a look out into the blue as manta and devil rays can be spotted here. You will also see large numbers of golden trevallies, along with sizeable great barracuda, hunting the schools of snapper. There is also a group of small black-tip reef sharks towards the northern end of the island, but it is normally the snorkellers that see these as they are very timid and the diver’s bubbles scare them off. Banded sea kraits, moray eels and scorpionfish are seen more regularly on the west slope than other close-by locations. Sea whips are abundant at the northerly end.
