If you want to dive in places where every dive holds promise of massive schools of fish and big pelagic marine life like whale sharks and manta rays, Koh Lipe is not the place to go. You can be lucky here, sightings of some of the bigger stuff do happen, but it will never be guaranteed. What you will see though, are some very healthy reefs, full of colorful soft coral gardens, and amazing topography. It is the Andaman Sea, meaning that the diversity of fish here is very large. No doubt you will see many different species on one single dive. The variation of the dive sites is just as great, and you will rarely turn up at one site and find another boat there. Some dive sites are calm and peaceful and perfect for getting you down in gear, others are fun drift dives with a confident current pushing you along the reef while you watch everything pass by like a movie on a screen. Both great types of diving!
Koh Lipe might be the most magical place in the Andaman Sea. Situated in the south west of Thailand in the Tarutao National Park and part of the Butang archipelago, this is truly paradise for backpackers and others seeking the island life as it used to be. This is one of the very few islands where the corals are in pristine condition even on the main beach and absolutely perfect for diving.

The whole island is charmingly basic, and so is the DJL Resort. As a standard, we have created the packages with dorm rooms. The dorm rooms are simple but clean and with A/C. However, upon booking, you can always chose to upgrade to a private room for an extra fee... The Private rooms does not have A/C, but a fan to keep you cool at night.
