      Swimming and Snorkeling in Bandar Khiran

The water is clear, the sand is white, and the suroundings rocky. What else do we need for a wonderful swim together with tropical multicolor fishes? Among other fishes, you'll see here : surgeon, tiger, parrot, trunk, anemone, butterfly, horn fishes, groupers, and even sometimes green turtles or squds… ATTENTION : When the sea is rough, this cove is not suitable for snorkeling ; we go to another one which is also nice and suitable for snorkeling, but the seabed is not so rich.
