Haad Gruad, the private beach

Haad Gruad is a small private beach located between Haad Yao and Haad Salad on the north eastern part of Koh Phangan. It is one of least known dive site on the island due to the access.

Haad Gruad has a long shallow reef stretching along the bay and to the outskirt on both side. Big rocks and corals line the bottom. You can find many of the reef fish common to the region. There is also chances to see some bigger fish like the great barracuda since the bay is located at a point which reach further in the ocean than the two bays located on each side.

At Plongée Koh Phangan Diving we earned special permission to access and use the premises of the local resort. If you want to dive this site make sure to contact us.
