This is an ideal site for novice divers. One of the most beautiful bays on the island, you will typically moor up in 6-10m (20-35ft) and begin your dive over some pristine sand - look out for the elusive snake eels that poke their heads out of their burrows.
Swimming over to either side of the bay you will encounter a rock wall that will lead you into deeper water where larger fish roam and coral outgrowths become more prevalent.
Aow Leuk is the best place on the island to come across turtles and there is superb snorkeling and sunbathing to be done in the bay. Look for mole cowries, triggers, morays, and angelfish that will come pretty close to you!
