Koh Haa Yai

The largest of the Has Islands is Koh Has (5) Yai (big). She has a steep cliff perpendicular to sea level makes it way from sea level down to about 30 metres.

Koh Haa Yai is surrounded by hard coral reefs and has a lovely rock wall on the south side of the island. This levels out to about 30 metres to a sandy bottom that has a mixture of soft corals, sea fans and had corals.

There are two underwater caves on the south-east side. The entrance to the first cave is 12 metres. This cave does get narrower as you entered cave penetration is not recommended unless you are certified.

The second cave is a cavern as such and s to the east of the first cave. The entrance is split in two and is spacious and well lit. This cave is know as the “Cathedral” because of the light that is reflected from the surface.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?
