Hin Rap South or Hin Laab is one of the best known and most crowded dive sites in the area just five kilometres south of Ko Chang often starting at the pier of Khlong Phrao Beach. Its main underwater features are some huge boulders, a large pinnacle coming from 18 meter deep and some coral shelves filled with soft corals and gorgonians. There is some evidence of dynamite fishing which is luckily forbidden nowadays. Fish are still small here compared to neighbouring sites but both fish as coral life have started a phenomenal recovery.
You will find many whip corals, feather stars and barrel sponges. Fish such as gobies, anthias, some giant clams and moorish idols are common. One of the highlights is a small range of rocks called the Blue Mountains only 200 meters away, famous because of its excellent blue to white glow coming from bright sunrays. It is a great, shallow and often high current dive site but perfect for novice divers, advanced scuba fanatics and even snorkellers will like this area if the weather is calm. It is one of the better sites in Koh Chang and if you would like to do just one dive we recommend this one.
