Scuba Diving in Ko Lanta, Thailand

Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: Ko Rok

Location: Ko Lanta, Thailand

Description: Pinnacle dive sites

Depth: 3 - 22 metres (10 - 72 feet)

Visibility: 15 - 30 metres (50 - 100 feet)

Rating: *****

The two sister-islands of Ko Rok offer beautiful diving with fabulous beaches and are suitable for divers and snorkellers of all levels. Located approximately 25km south of Ko Haa and visible on the horizon from Kan Tieng Bay, Ko Rok offers relatively shallow diving with abundant marine life and thriving corals in the shallower areas. The shallow channel between the islands reaches a maximum depth of 15m, which makes Ko Rok a great destination for students, beginner divers and snorkellers.

The uninhabited islands of Ko Rok (Ko Rok Nai - Inner Rock, and Ko Rok Nok - Outer Rock) are part of Ko Lanta's National Marine Park and are named after a small furry animal (called 'rok' in Thai), which can occasionally be spotted on the islands. Giant monitor lizards (often over a metre in length!) are regularly seen on the beautiful, powder-white sandy beaches, which are among prettiest in Thailand. Hard corals, interspersed with a few more colourful, soft corals, dominate the deeper areas on the east side of Ko Rok Nok. The marine life that can be found at Ko Rok varies from abundant and colourful reef fish to black-tip reef sharks, which can be spotted, cruising past the reef and if you're lucky you can find a hawksbill turtle near the beach. The spectacular twin beaches, crystal clear water and abundant wildlife, both above and below the water, make for memorable day for all the family.
