Shark Island

Shark Island is a remote islet off the southern tip of Koh Tao. You can dive on both sides of the island, but there is often a relatively good current, so it is recommended for intermediate divers and above. The depth gradually increases off the island, but if you dive along the island, you can see coral beds and other sandy creatures at a depth of 15 to 10 meters.

In the relatively shallow areas, you can see damsel damselfish and butterflyfish that coexist with the coral, while at a certain depth, you can see fusillars and trevally on the current.
