Reethi Giri means ‘beautiful underwater island’ in Dhivehi, and the reef itself is a small sloping reef with large coral blocks scattered along it. One of the large coral blocks located on the top reef is home to a resident nurse shark, and is also full with anthias of all different colours. Large schools of neon and lunar fusiliers swim around the reef and are sometimes hunted by jack fish. You can see the brightly coloured clown triggerfish and the shy porcupine fish tucked away in the small overhangs. Long-nose butterfly fish, banner fish, and angelfish are also found on Reethi Giri.
