The recent discovery of a deep sea coral reef in the southern province of Phang Nga opens another site for diving lovers.

Situated some 25 metres beneath the ocean some five sea miles off the coast of Takua Pa district, ‘Kong Hin E Tan’, where the reefs are located, covers about 300 rai (120 acres) and is rich in natural coral life, incluing submassive coral, encrusted coral, anemone-like coral and other sea creatures.

According to an expert at the Phuket Marine Biological Centre (PMBC), the coral reef at Kong Hin E Tan is as beautiful as those at Mu Ko Similan National Park in the same province.
