Packing for Thailand? Your vacation will be far from perfect if you don’t explore the underwater havens that your destination is famous for. Don’t miss out on scuba diving and snorkelling experiences of a lifetime. Swim with shoals of colourful fish, explore shipwrecks, and marvel at the seabed rock formations and coral gardens. The underwater visibility is up to 100 feet at some of these beach diving destinations in Thailand.

The Similans are a collection on nine island scattered like emeralds amidst the clear blue Andaman Sea. The ethereal seascape above the surface is matched by an equally enchanting underwater world of rocks and sea-life. The crystal-clear waters are infested with multicoloured fish and blue turtles. Feed them some bread, and they’ll surround you like a colourful crowd.
Ao Sane Beach in Phuket

You’ll need to make some effort to get here, as the reclusive beach is still off most tours. This also makes it a secluded and relatively unexplored beach in Phuket. Thickets of rainforest encircle this crescent-shaped lagoon that contains transparent blue waters and some most exotic underwater scenery. Both scuba diving and snorkelling are available. You can rent diving gear and even get your first diving lesson.

Laem Singh Beach

A secret beach at one time, Laem Singh Beach can be rather crowded these days. Waters are clear in sunny weather, and some stunning formations of rocks and corals invite divers to indulge. The shallow basin makes this beach ideal for snorkelling.

Laem Ka Beach

A gem of a beach hidden from plain view in the far-south of Phuket, you’ll need to become a bit of an explorer to reach here. A couple of tents on the beach sell and rent diving gear and dish out diving lessons. The underwater world is exquisite, with stunning rock formations and fascinating marine-life.

Kata Noi Beach

The rocky seabed at the secluded Kata Noi Beach provides plenty of pockets for fish and turtle to hide and for divers to explore. Quieter than most Thailand beaches, it’s a paradise for divers, surfers and beach-lovers.  Play hide-and-seek with sea creatures and get awed by underwater beauty.
