CHRISTMAS POINT – Koh Ba-Ngu
Similan Island Nine
Christmas point is a series granite boulders on the north-west of Similan Island Nine.
Many of these large boulders continue down to a depth of 40 meters, while others are stacked and create arched swim-throughs at around 24 meters – giant grouper and sweetlips are often found hiding here. The cracks and fissures are covered in soft corals and sea fans where you’ll find porcelain crabs, nudibranch, and anemones.
Eagle Ray have been seen around the edge of the site along with ribbon eels and pipefish, and schools of long nosed emperors, fusiliers, and blue fin trevally are common sights.
Be sure to bring your camera for this one as the network of boulders and channels make for a great photo.
