Also called: Twin Rocks, or just The Twins.

On the other side of Koh Nang Yuan from the Japanese Garden site is the Twin Peaks location, named for two large coral boulders that make up the bulk of the formation. The top of the boulders are five to eight meters below the surface, so the site is pretty much for scuba divers only. The area seems to have a rich variety of marine life, including some rare clownfish.

The sea on this side of Koh Nang Yuan can be a bit rough, but there is little or no current beneath the waves. The best months are supposed to be April and May.

Maximum Depth is 18 meters.

Visibility is generally quite good, in the 5 to 20 meter range.

The site - and all of Koh Nang Yuan - is only about 10 minutes by boat from Sairee Beach on Koh Tao.
