Shark Point consists of three sub sea pinnacles, the largest just breaking the surface and appearing as a barren rock outcropping.
Also known as Hin Muang or Shark Rock. This site commonly has strong ocean currents that bring nutrient rich water which tends to draw in Whale Sharks and other pelagics for feeding. Divers here are virtually guaranteed to swim amongst enormous schools of Great Barracuda, Five-lined Snappers, Gold-striped Fusiliers and the occasional Leopard Shark resting quietly on the seabed. The reef consists of three main sections and most divers could spend several days at least exploring the site which is arguably the most popular of all the local day-diving sites. Currents can be brisk at this site but they tend run parallel to the reef sections and allow for an excellent drift dive back to the dive boat
