Mu Ko Similan national park
The Similan Islands group has the clearest water and the whitest sand beaches. It has the most fish in terms of number and variety. There are huge schools of fish including snapper, fusilier, surgeon fish, rabbit fish, parrot fish and so much more. There is a good chance of seeing turtles munching away on the coral or blue spotted stingray hiding on the sandy sea bed. There’s a fair chance of seeing leopard sharks. Pelagic fish encounters with manta rays and whale sharks while not common do happen sometimes.
The coral at the Similan Islands is a mix of hard and soft coral. The fringing reefs on the eastern sides of the islands slope gradually from the shallows to beyond 30 metres deep. On the western sides of the islands there are dramatic granite boulder formations which start above water and continue down below the surface. They are dotted with large gorgonian sea fans, sea whips and barrel sponges, they make stunning underwater seascapes.
