Dive Hin Muang (Purple Rock)

Hin Muang is a huge rocky pinnacle on the outer fringes of the Mu Koh Lanta National Park. Covered in literally tens of thousands of purple soft corals and anemones feeding on the currents, Hin Muang is the deepest wall dive in Thailand, with the southern side dropping to around 65m.

Starting at just 10m, the top of Hin Muang is a series of rocky plateaus, each deeper than the previous as it stretches out towards Hin Daeng. As you head down the permanent mooring rope, the rock splits in two and meets again around 20m. From this point you can drop deeper and swim around the reef, however good buoyancy, air consumption and attention to depth are necessary here.

Macro life is abundant on Hin Muang and even though the corals and marine life around this reef are breathtaking, keep an eye out in the blue, because there is always a surprise to be seen there. Schools of Tuna Fish, Barracuda and Jack Fish circle in the blue. Manta rays are often seen here (sometimes many together), and on a lucky day you may also come across Whale Shark.

It has to been taken into consideration that these dive sites are in open sea and therefore sensitive to weather conditions (such as currents and waves) which can make boat journeys a little rougher. These same weather conditions make these sites a perfect feeding ground for Manta Rays, Whale Sharks and all kind of fish, but make them less suitable for beginner divers or snorkelers.

Just a few hundred meters from Hin Muang lies Hin Daeng (Red Rock) which is dived together with Hin Muang in the same trip.
