Aow Leuk Bay - Koh Tao
Situated in a sheltered bay at the south of Koh Tao, Aow Leuk bay features a healthy coral reef which fringes the coast-line. On the outer side of the reef is a sandy bottom with scattered rocks, on which you can find numerous species of Goby, and occasionally Barracuda, Mackerels and Trevallies.
As with most inshore reefs, there are countless species of marine life to be found here, ranging from the common species of Wrasses, Parrotfish, Butterflyfish and Damselfish.
In addition to these common inhabitants of the reef, there's also the possibility of an encounter with less common species such as Turtles and Pipefish and Seahorses .
Although it is considered an ideal site for student divers, Aow Leuk also makes for an interesting and relaxing dive for more experienced divers seeking to maximize their dive time.
Snorkelling Note: Due to the sheltered and shallow nature of this site, it is perfect for snorkellingand swimming at most times of year.
