Located on the south-east side of Koh Phi Phi Ley, the edges of Lohsamah Bay offer relaxed wall diving, with a maximum depth of 25m just outside the bay, and much shallower depths inside. With their crevices and overhangs, the walls are home to a wide variety of marine life, so take a torch so that you can see inside the cracks.
Lohsamah Bay Information

- Diver level: Beginner
- Currents: Mild

Lionfish, scorpionfish and porcupine pufferfish are commonly found here, along with sea whips, beautiful gorgonians, and bubble coral on which the turtles like to feast. On the eastern side of the bay, a narrow canyon, wide enough for a single diver can be found at 15m and is well worth exploring. The sandy sea bed is scattered with brain coral, a good hiding place for nocturnal reef critters and moray eels, and in the sand itself you can find garden eels, blue spotted stingrays, and even leopard sharks if you’re lucky.
