This submerged granite pinnacle lies to the east of Ko Torinla and is often dived first thing in a morning. Attached to the permanent mooring buoy, the top of the pinnacle has become home to a herd of around 15 Hump Head Parrot Fish, which are rarely seen in groups away from this site. Often they will also have a pair of Napoleon Wrasse with them, presumably enjoying the company of other large fish. Schools of Big Eye Snapper and Yellow Goat Fish inhabit various places around the pinnacle as well as various Parrot Fish, Butterfly Fish, and Angel Fish. It is not unusual to see both Kuhl's Rays and White Tip Reef Sharks sleeping on the sand in deeper areas here as well as various macro critters on the rocks themselves, including Flabellina and Risbecia Nudibranchs.
