Koh Lipe Diving is famous for the small sea dwellers. However close to Koh Lipe at 8 miles rock you can also spot big fishes. We had just one day of diving on Koh Lipe. Therefore we decided to dive the 8 miles rock and Stonehenge.

8 miles rock Koh Lipe
8 miles rock is a deep dive spot. The top of the rock is in around 16 metres depth and is going down to 50 metres. The current can be really strong there. 8 miles rock is just a dive side for experienced divers.
8 miles rock is quite famous to spot big fishes. We found some really big, massive groupers in a depth of 40 metres. However the reef is full of life. You can find barracudas, travellies and a lot more.
Stonehenge Koh Lipe
After the deep dive at 8 miles rock we dived a more shallower dive side: Stonehenge. Stonehenge is an amazing dive side. A lot of soft corals and a lot of small sea dwellers: ghost pipefishes, squad shrimps, anemone shrimps, devil scorpion fishes, stone fishes and a lot more. Due to the current the dive side can be tricky as well. However Stonehenge is a great spot and beside the small sea dwellers you can spot big schools of barracudas.
