Hin Daeng (Red Rock)

Richelieu Rock is the best dive site in Northern Andaman, then Hin Deang and Hin Muang, the striking twin outcrops alone in the open sea, are undoubtedly be the best of Southern Andaman. Meaning ‘red rock’ in Thai, Hin Deang is covered with red soft corals, which makes the rock appear red. Only three small pinnacles are visible from the surface, but once underwater, the vast form of Hin Deang stretches 30-40 mt down before reaching the sandy bottom. A long rocky wall consisting of soft corals, sea fans, and black coral stretches from the west to the south side of Hin Deang, reaching to the sandy bottom 40-45 mt underwater. The east and northeast side, on the other hand, is a reef slope with pinnacles and hard corals. The contour slopes down to the sand to depths of around 35-40 mt. Divers can also swim across the big channel on the north side of Hin Deang, which leads to the west side. The hard coral reefs that top the pinnacles are good for snorkeling and are only 5-10 mt deep.
