Elephant Head Rock

Elephant Head consists of huge granite boulders found between Similan Islands #7 and #8.  The boulders start down in the sand at 50 meters and rise up, stretching to above the surface.

Sharks are more frequent here, and if you look in under rocks you might be lucky enought to see baby sharks.  Check out for Octopus, pretty Nudibranchs, Boxfish and many other colourful fish.

Quite often we get to see different kinds of Rays, and there is usually schools of Baracudas at Elephant Head and other big predators.

There is often a current running through the dive site, but there are plenty of rocks and boulders to hide behind.
