Ali Thila offers steep walls on all sides of the coral formation, ending at 35-40 metres with a sandy bottom. The reef is covered in black coral trees, which are the perfect hiding place for long nose hawk fish. Many bright pink anemones with clown fish and the rare fimbriated moray can also be found here. Where the current hits the reef, schooling bat fish and banner fish can be found.
