Vakarufalhi Etere Thila is a long and narrow reef starting at eight metres and dropping away to a sandy area below 30 metres. Large overhangs with huge fan corals and whip corals inside, together with coral blocks covered in soft corals make it a truly stunning dive site. Napoleons, white tip reef sharks and grey reef sharks can be seen around the deeper areas of the reef, while on the top reef look out for beautiful anemones, puffer fish, nudibranches and turtles.
