Thailand :: Others : Koh Lipe

Koh Lipe is the only inhabited island in the Butang group in the Tarutao National Park, deep south Thailand. The protected archipelago is made up of at least 45 islands, Koh Tarutao being the largest and the Butang group lies west of this. Diving here is realtively unspoilt and can be rewarding with at least seven discovered submerged pinnacles and a multitude of other dive spots in the area including 8 Mile Rock ; a pinnacle covered in soft coral dropping to nearly 50 metres deep and Hin Chabang with its wonderful soft coral. All regular Andaman marine inhabitants can be found here including those big pelagics that we all yearn to see.
