Siam Bay is just a stone's throw from Bungalow Bay yet it's so much quieter the average depth is between 10 and 22 metres. Visibility is normally between 10 metres and 20 metres. Currents within the bay are normally mild.
There are several large rocks that guard the edge of the Island. Inside the bay, there are lots of hard corals such as table corals and Staghorn Corals to explore. In the middle of the bay at a depth of between eighteen metres and twenty metres out on the sand, there is an artificial reef.
Bizarrely this perhaps the only place in the world you can see a full-size Elephant underwater (actually there are two!). There is also an enormous Oyster Shell and a Temple.
