KOH RIN EAST. 12° 47.820N, 100° 42.269E

Anchorages here offer reasonable day-stop protection in the southwest season and can be used during calmer days in the northeast season.

Anchor off the beach in 7-9 metres on a sandy bottom. Take care to avoid the coral heads, which lurk for the most part at the southern end of the bay. The swimming and snorkelling is good both here and farther north along the reef edge, although the currents can be strong around mid-tide.

Anchor in 4-6 metres close to the drop-offs either north or south of this pair of low-lying islands, which are jointly surrounded by a fringing reef. The water is usually clear, and the snorkelling and diving is best around slack water or neap tides. This makes a day-stop only.
