If you plan Diving In Thailand than you should dive Hin Daeng (Red Rock) which is a great Scuba Diving Phuket dive site.
Hin Daeng is very close to Hin Muang (approx 500 meters apart) consists of walls, plateaus and rocks. A submerged pinnacle, where three rocks just break the surface.
This is one of the very few dive sites in Thailand where you can see grey reef sharks.
Whale sharks and manta rays are also known to visit this dive spot. Here you also might see leopard sharks, great barracudas, octopus, and plenty of cleaner shrimps.
In the north there is a valley with small boulders inside which are completely jeweled with soft coral. Try and take a look in the cracks and crevices for many species of pipefish found here.
