Twins or Aow Sam is a spectacular dive site which can be found just off Nang Yuan Bay number 3. It consists out of two very pretty and steep rocky outcroppings or boulders and a nearby deeper 'little brother'. There is a very nice swim through at the deeper pinnacle which looks like a stone archway.
The first pinnacle houses a few hundreds of curious and small yellowtail barracuda's. The many nooks and crannies inside the rocks are perfect spots to see blue ringed angel fish, porcupine fish and coloured flatworms. In between the two pinnacles is a large congregation of Clarke's anemone fish which is only one of the many colonies of green, blue, and red anemones and their inhabitants. Its white sand is perfect to see spotted fantail rays and sea cucumbers. Fish which are commonly seen here, especially near the western deeper second pinnacle, are blacktip reef sharks, wrasses, groupers, barracuda and moray eels. It is in one word a perfect destination for snorkellers and divers at such a distance to one of the most beautiful bays of Thailand, Koh Nang Yuan or the Princess Islands.
