Details:These two Outcrops; translated as Red Rock and Purple Rock, surge their way from the sea floor over 40 meters below to break the surface of the sea with their craggy tips, the last lonely outpost for sea birds for several nautical miles.Hin Daeng consists of 3 small rocks just breaking the surface. Not very impressive at the surface, but underwater the reef features a dramatic drop-off as the wall reaches a depth of over 50 meters and is a favorite among divers due to its variety of marine life including manta rays.
Only a small distance away lays one of the most beautiful submerged reefs in Thailand, Hin Muang. This reef, the size of a football field, is completely covered with purple anemones and soft corals, and offers the same variety of marine life as Hin Daeng with the chance to see manta rays, gray reef sharks and leopard sharks along with a great range of tropical fish.
