Beach Diving Phuket
Shore dives from Phuket’s west coast beaches.
Two options for beach diving in Phuket are:
- On the south reef of Kata Noi beach
- At Le Meridien house reef (Karon Noi beach) just south of Patong beach.
It’s easy diving for those who don’t want to spend all day on a boat.
These Phuket shore diving reefs are shallow with a max depth of about 10 metres.
The hard coral reefs are a bit sandy but still support plenty of fish life including lionfish, scorpionfish, parrotfish, eels and more.
Blue Spotted stingrays can be seen in the sandy patches.
Critters include seahorse and ornate ghost pipefish.
These are great dives for training or for night dives.
