This is the smallest of the islands bordering the crystal clear waters of the lagoon. On the lagoon side, the reef is shallow and gently shelving, perfect for snorkelling. On the sea-facing side of the island the reef forms a steep wall. At the foot of the wall is an overhang where you will find some really interesting large rock boulders, covered in soft and hard corals. There are a couple of small caves and plenty of fractures in the limestone where you may find all sorts of macro-life.
You will find a huge variety of fish here including great barracuda, a group of lionfish, a huge school of yellow snapper, and many well camouflaged scorpionfish. At the foot of the reef live two garden eels, which are great fun to watch. There are also many different species of nudibranchs, pipefish and shrimps.
This dive site is usually dived along with Koh Haa 2 in the same dive due to their small size and close proximity.
