The most part of the little island of Koh Ma is made up of steep rock cliff and not really accessible on land. But underwater, it is a whole different thing. Koh Ma has to be the most beautiful dive site of Koh Phangan. This reef is protected pretty much all year around from the bad weather and is vibrant of life.
Sadly Koh Ma is victim of the development of the bay with increasing number of visitors. Be cautious of where you put your fins and hands and leave only bubbles behind.
