Hin Deang/Hin Muang

Hin Muang (Purple Rock)

This dive site got its name from the large amount of purple soft corals that completely cover the rocks and can be seen throughout the dive. The site itself is a long narrow ridge which rises from the ocean floor at a depth of approximately 65 meters and goes to its highest point of approximately 8 meters. It can be accessed by a permanent buoy line near the shallowest point. The diver travels along the walls and steep reefs that the site consists of, including the peaks providing cleaner stations where manta rays and whale sharks swim very close to be groomed by the smaller reef fishes. With a plethora of marine life inhabiting the site, looking out into the blue also offers the chance of seeing trevallies, rainbow runners, barracudas, mackerel and tuna fish hunting in schools.
