Koh Haa has something for everybody to enjoy! The Koh Lanta National Marine Park includes the five islands called Koh Haa, which is simply stunning in every way and by far our most popular diving and snorkeling site. The five islands are made up of limestone rocks jutting out of the ocean, creating splendid scenery both on the surface and under the water.
Diving at Ko Haa is suitable for divers and snorkellers of all levels. Ko Haa’s scuba diving highlights include The Lagoon, The Cathedral, and The Chimney. There are also underwater pinnacles, drop-offs, walls, bolders and other caverns, inter-connected chambers and swim-throughs to explore. We make daily dive trips to Ko Haa every day on board our luxury dive boat MV Moskito. Ko Haa, which means ‘Five Islands’ in Thai, has a central lagoon area that is ideal for beginner divers. It offers a safe and relaxed starting point for you to take your first underwater breaths and there are some extremely friendly little Porcupine Puffer Fish, ready to make your acquaintance in the large, sandy bay area. The bay slopes gently onto the reef allowing you to progress into your first dive effortlessly.
The marine life that can be found at Ko Haa varies from rare Ghost Pipefish measuring only a few centimetres, to an abundance of Octopus hiding amongst the rocks and crevices. A Hawksbill Turtle is often seen swimming amongst the pristine coral. Marble Rays, Eagle Rays, Whale Sharks and even Manta Rays are spotted here occasionally. You can’t predict exactly what you’ll see, but it’s always a pleasant and rewarding surprise! Ko Haa at a Glance
