Koh Sak Most Visited Pattaya Island
This Pattaya near island dive site must be the most dived site by many of Pattaya’s dive shops as a training site, care must be taken when in the centre of the bay or on the surface due to tour boats and jet skis, surface markers are a must. The east and west headlands do offer some interesting shallow reef and under water artificial reef project, as little as 3m (10 ft) in the centre of the bay at low tide.
