Hin Wong Pinnacle

Hin Wong Pinnacle is located on the east side of Koh Tao, off the coast of Hinwon Bay. We recommend this site for intermediate and above divers because the current is relatively strong on many days. The main rock is not very large, but the entire dive site is wide and has a few scattered rocks.

If you look offshore, you’ll see big horse mackerel, bluefin tuna, hornets, and other fish. The main rock is an overhang, and in the crevices between the rock and the sandy area, you should be able to observe macroscopic fish such as crocodiles and various species of shrimp.
