Best Scuba Diving Sites in Krabi (Thailand)

The province of Krabi in the west coast of Thailand is as beautiful under the water as it is above it. Scuba diving in Krabi scene attracts thousands of tourists and divers alike from all over the world every year, and the experience offered by the beaches and offshore Krabi dive sites is totally worth it. Moving away from the rugged limestone hills, lush green mangroves and bustling cities, the peninsular coast along the Andaman Sea offers the best spots for scuba diving in Krabi.
