Koh Hu Chang Dive and Snorkel Sites


Koh Hu Chang (Thai for elephant ears) is one of the least dived sites around the Pattaya Islands.

Most dive boats tend to visit the other Far islands of Koh Rin and Koh Man Wichai.

The small island pinnacle gets its name from the resemblance to the Thai words Hu Chang which means Elephant Ears.

Although Hu Chang is a small dive site, the sheltered inlet on the west side can offer an ideal introduction to scuba diving for novices, with a pleasant combination of shallow depths, outcrops of corals and open sandy areas.
