Breakfast Bend – one of the best reefs in the area, with vibrant colors and fish. Typical of the Eastern side of the Similans, there is a nice shallow flat area from 0-8 meters (0-25 feet) that is rich in small bommies interspersed with sandy patches. Plenty of fish, making the shallows great for snorkeling and beginning dives.
