Koh Nang Yuan Pinnacle - Koh Tao

Koh Nang Yuan Pinnacle at a Glance

Depth: 4 - 24 m
Currents: nil
Season: Feb. - Nov.

Also called: Red Rock or Hin Daeng.

The pinnacle is a stone stack that starts a meter or so below the surface. The pillar itself isn't that interesting, but it's where most people start their dive. After descending, most divers head toward the shore and drift down along towards the Japanese Garden. If you head straight for Nang Yuan island from the pinnacle, you'll find a nice swim-through in the shore rocks.

I encountered a less skittish than usual Moorish idol on my last dive here. I kept my hands tucked in and swam right up to it. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera with me. Isn't that how it always is?
