West of Eden is situated on the west side of Ko Pa- Yu AKA Island 7 this is a typical western Similan Island dive site comprising of giant granite boulders.
Although this is not as beautiful as it’s Island 7 eastern counterpart West of Eden is a very enjoyable dive. It is a great exploration dive with some nice canyons, giant sea fans and soft corals.
You should be able to find plenty of lobsters on this site amongst other interesting things including Red Fire Gobies, Cowrie Shells and Stonefish.
The boulders are definitely the highlight and traveling to far north or south will produce rubble so take your time and enjoy these massive creations. Keep an ear out for the creaking boulder, quite an eerie sound when diving.
