Considered by many as one of the best dive sites in the Maldives, the atoll offers pristine reefs on the eastern side and thrilling shark dives - look out for hammerheads and grey reef sharks. This is a more challenging dive site which is not really advised for novice divers and reef hooks are recommended.
The north east is peppered with submerged pinnacles covered predominantly in soft corals, whilst the west will see you surrounded by jacks and snappers. Keep an eye open for sharks and rays at 30m.
One of the most popular channel dives; although relatively shallow, it stretches for 250m and whitetip reef sharks are frequent visitors. So too are schools of jacks, as they surge in among tuna and eagle rays.
Schooling fish and jacks attract large numbers of white tip reef sharks.
Located in a channel, the reef is subject to strong currents at times. The ocean currents carry a lot of nutrients to the reef, supporting an abundance of sea life. The site is well renowned for the soft coral growth, turtles, diverse fish life and invertebrates found on the reef. At the reef slope you may find sharks and eagle rays.
