Richelieu Rock is probably Thailand’s most famous dive site and probably its best. Reported to be one of Jacques Cousteau’s favourite sites. She is so good that often liveaboard trips will do multiple dives on her.

Marked by a pinnacle which is just one metre above the water during low tide and disappears during high tide. A horse shoe rock formation it has the most abundance of soft corals of any site in Thailand.
