ABOUT ANGTHONG MARINE PARK - KOH YIPPON/HIN YIPPON

Edit

Koh Yippon (meaning "Japanese Island in Thai) and its smaller neighbor Hin Yippon (meaning "Japanese Rock" in Thai) are two islands situated at the north of Angthong Marine Park.
These beautiful islands are located to the west of Koh Pha-Ngan and are interesting dive sites full of overhangs and “swim-throughs”, combined with sloping reefs starting at around 2m in depth.

An incredible diversity of both hard and soft corals adorn these reefs, making them the perfect habitat for Banded Sea Snakes (Kraits), Fusiliers, Parrotfish, Wrasse, and various species of Angelfish and Butterflyfish.

Explore the nooks and crannies and you’ll also find Moray Eels, Stingrays, Crabs and Shrimps.

Snorkeling Note: Due to its calm, shallow water and abundance of colourful, healthy corals and marine life, Angthong Marine Park offers an ideal location for snorkelers and swimmers..
