A snorkeler maneuvers around a small set of rocky outcroppings.
If you haven't guessed from the clarity of the ocean, the visibility for diving and snorkeling are unparalleled on and around this island. In spite of being a PADI licensed open water scuba diver, the thought of watching fish bore me to death never continuously lured me back to the ocean's depths. The great jellyfish debacle of 2010 pretty much sealed my fate to remain on the surface of any large pool of water I enter.
Hilltop bungalows overlooking the ocean.
A cool breeze and a great undisturbed view are available from Pattaya Song Resort, one of the original bungalow establishments of Pattaya beach on Ko Lipe. All this for a mere 500 Baht/night which is a far cry from many of the viewless rooms of overpriced Sita Resort seen in yesterday's photo.
