Thailand :: Phuket : Shark Point

This is a tiny island called Hin Mu Sang situated around 25km east of Phuket. It gets the name as there are nearly always leopard sharks around its base on the sand 20 meters below. A diver can be almost guaranteed to spot one here. Besides the leopard sharks the site consists of three pinnacles that are covered in soft corals that home an abundance of marine life. Nutrient rich currents can be strong here so visiting pelagics are not uncommon. The Thai government declared this site a marine sanctuary in 1992 so all forms of fishing and collecting are prohibited.
