Bays 4 and 5 Racha Yai

Bays 4 and 5 are dive sites situated at the south east end of Racha Yai. They are not commonly dived however in recent times have started to gain popularity.

Both bays have shallow water to begin the dive however both have rock formations that drop away to about 30 metres and beyond. The rock formation are proving to be popular given that they run deep and it offers divers something to look at rather than the sandy bays where the coral ends around the 18 – 20m mark. Visibility is often better here as well due to the rocks, depth and lack of general activity on the sites.

Manta rays and Eagle rays have been spotted in these waters.
