East of Eden – Island 7

Another beautiful and popular Similan Islands dive site, East of Eden is situated on the eastern side of Island 7 and is made popular by the large clusters of staghorn coral and coral crops. Gently sloping from 5 to 40 metres it is suitable to all level of divers.

The highlight of the dive is again another large rock, similar in size to Hin Muan Deaw on Anita’s Reef. Named Gluay-Mai (the orchid garden) it is littered with lovely and colorful soft coral with the highlight being some hot pink anemone coral at the top of the rock. Starting at 20 metres and reaching to 12 metres Gluay-Mai is another rock that you could spend an entire dive on.
