Hin Daeng and Hin Muang

One of Thailand’s best diving spots is Hin Daeng and Hin Muang. These are two dive sites right next to one another, and only one is visible above the surface at low tides. They are exposed pinnacles many miles from the nearest land and are very popular with more experienced scuba divers. Although newly-certified Open Water divers are able to visit Hin Daeng and Hin Muang, most diving centres insist on a minimum number of dives and a certification level a little higher than the basic PADI or SSI Open Water. There’s nothing here for snorkellers, but there’s plenty of great coral and marine life to make it well worth visiting and taking part in two or three dives on the same day.

Hin Muang is one of the best dive sites in Thailand. However, it is often not talked about because divers refer to its sister site, Hin Daeng, instead. Hin Muang is deep, exciting and home to lots of healthy and interesting marine life. Large fish, such as whale Sharks and Manta Rays are often seen here.


Hin Daeng is probably Thailand’s second best known scuba diving site, with the most well-known being Richelieu Rock. Hin Daeng is a deep, exciting and sometimes challenging dive site, but one that should always be on diver’s list of places to go in Thailand. It’s miles from nowhere and nothing to look at from above the surface, but under the water this is a dive site that can be enjoyed again and again.
