Go Cave Diving at the Similan Islands

Thailand

This protected national park consists of nine islands thus the name Similan which is a Yawi (the language of Thai Malays) word meaning ‘nine’. The best dive site is the Elephant Head Rock, so named because its granite boulders resemble an elephant. It has a maze of swim-troughs and spin-cycle currents so care is needed when making a dive.
