Identifying Coral Types – Learning on a Dive

When you begin to look at reef as individual corals, the diving experience becomes way more interesting as there is a lot to learn about the coral types.

Soft and Hard Coral

The two main types of corals are the soft and the hard coral. You can find both in most reefs, especially in the Maldives.

Staghorn Coral

Originating in the Caribbean, this coral grows upward towards the sunlight. Not very strong, these corals can fall apart for a slight kick, thus, be careful when you swim around them.

Elkhorn Coral

Another Caribbean coral, this is an active species that has huge colonies; sometimes bigger than a human being. Elkhorn is also considered a reef-building coral as they become rock after they die.

Lettuce Coral

If you are diving at a site close to your Maldives Island resort the likes of Naladhu Private Island Maldives, this is a coral you will most likely see often.

Things to do in Hua Hin, Thailand – On a Holiday Near the Sea

A cosy town by the beach, Hua Hin is a quiet place in Thailand that takes you away from the bustle and noise of the city and other tourist-oriented cities.

The Beach

The Hua Hin beach stretches for about 8 kilometres and is certainly one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Thailand. With soft white sand and endless rows of palm trees, this beach is calmer than expected. Not too many people flock to the place, maybe because resorts the likes of AVANI Hua Hin Resort & Villas and more are located right on the beach, making a few parts of the beach private.

Wat Khao Takiab

One of the most popular things to do in Hua Hin is climbing up the Monkey Mountain. To see the temple, you must climb about 100 steps up the mountain, and pass a few curious monkeys on the way.

This night market is loved by both the locals and the visitors as it has so many things to offer. From food to unique souvenirs, this place has it all.

Sam Phan Nam

This is floating market, but unlike the other one in Thailand, this market is built on stilts, over an artificially created lake.
