Diving Koh Haa (The Five Islands)
Diving Koh Haa has something for everybody to enjoy! The Koh Lanta National Marine Park includes the five islands called Koh Haa, which is simply stunning in every way and by far our most popular diving and snorkeling site. The five islands are made up of limestone rocks jutting out of the ocean, creating splendid scenery both on the surface and under the water. Koh haa has a central Lagoon with a little white sandy beach, crystal clear waters and a large variety of Marine Life. The bay slopes onto the reef allowing you to progress into your first dive efortlessly.
Koh Haa is famous for the “Cathedral” where divers can explore the mysterious two large caverns formed at one of the islands. There are also stunning coral walls, schooling fish, Clown fish, Porcupine Pufferfish, Snapper, Barracuda, Scorpionfish lots of macro and, if you look carefully, we often find some quite unusual aquatic life like the Ornate Ghost Pipe fish, and Harlequin shrimp. And, best of all, you might get lucky and see a Whale shark!
The lagoon at Koh Haa also provides a nice protected area for snorkeling and is suitable for all levels and ages. It’s also an underwater photographers paradise!
