The Similan Islands
Hideaway Bay is located on the west side of Similan Island Five. Shallow, protected waters and sandy bottom makes this an ideal site for novice divers or those completing further educational exercises, for example, Navigation. Octopus, moray, and many varieties of reef fish can be found among the bommies which scatter this attractive bay, making for good snorkeling in the shallower areas. At around 12 meters a series of statues have been placed in a large arc. The Thai Zodiac, memorials to the Tsunami victims, and two mermaids can be found if you follow the path of the arc and can make for a fun ‘selfie’ if you bring your camera.
