Burma :: Mergui : Three Islets (Shark Cave)

This spot is also called Shark Cave Island and has three rocks rising from 40 metres deep to above the surface, it offers some of the best marine life in the Archipelago and cannot all be seen in one single dive. Huge shoals of snappers and fusiliers swirl around you as you begin the descent down the coral covered walls, it is one of the better spots to find harlequin shrimp and harlequin ghost pipefish.

For the thrill seekers there is a huge canyon to the north of the middle island and leads to a cave at around 16 metres, the entrance is usually guarded by several grey reef sharks that may lose their shyness and swim upto you if you stay quiet and motionless. The tunnel is around 20 metres long and has many cup corals and sponges along its walls, take care of possible surge within the tunnel.
