Just a short distance north of Boulder City this reef, Hin Phae in Thai, is the longest reef in the Islands. Several rocks just break the surface (except at high tide) before cascading as deep as 40m. The south side is deeper and covered with large boulders, while the north side slopes away more gently with fields of sand and hard corals sloping into the distance. Marine life is similar to Boulder City, though sightings of Kuhl's Rays and Jenkins Whip Rays do tend to be more common here. Shark Fin is often dived as the last dive if the currents are strong, rather than Boulder, due to its size.
