Stonehenge is our favourite dive site because of its diversity of species as well as its topography. Its name is due to the large monoliths positioned like menhirs on the bottom. There’s a large hard coral reef and an incredible soft coral garden. While diving here, if you’re lucky, you may see mackerel, tuna, devil rays, seahorse & ghost pipefish. Depth: 5 – 25 m.
Talang is a small island around 10 minutes boat ride from Ko Lipe, maximum 35 m, and one of our most favourite dive sites. Seahorses, Pipefish and Nudibranches can be found while diving here as well as many cleaning stations inhabited by shrimps. Stonefish, Scorpionfish, Lionfish, Boxfish, Sting Rays & Travellies are abundantly present. This site is suitable for both fun dives and dive courses.

8 miles rock is Lipe’s Koh Lipes furthest – 8 miles south. It consists of a pinnacle in the middle of the sea. Its summit is at 16 m and from there it slopes down to a depth of over 50 m. It’s here that we have the best chance of seeing a whale shark or some large rays. Because this is a deep site we only take advanced divers wearing dive computers on this dive.
