This reef is located to the east of island 4 (Ko Miang) in front of “Haad-Lek” or the “small beach”, below Anita's Reef. The bay is ideal for mooring at night - and great views of the islands. Corals line up from north to south on the islands, and gently slope down from 5 meters to 10 meters to a depth of 26 meters.
On the sand bottom on the outskirts of the reef, stingrays and garden eels can be seen. On occasion, big rays like the Jenkin’s ray can be seen. Along the reef, many small reef creatures appear, including lionfish, boxfish, angelfish, butterfly fish, and moray eels. Special creatures such as twin-spotted lionfish have also been spotted.
After dark, you can find different creatures, such as cuttlefish, squid, lobster, various reef crabs, decorator crabs, many types of shrimp in crevices, and nudibranchs. Nurse sharks sometimes come hunting for their crustacean meals at this time.
This dive site is not too deep and very convenient for boats mooring by night, so it is suitable for a night dive or check dive. Diving in this area is comparatively easy because there are many mooring buoys. You can start the dive at any buoy, follow the reefs and get back to the boat easily.
