This small and beautiful reef lies only 10 minutes northwest of Lily Beach. It has many small overhangs abundant with fish life. Schools of fusiliers surround the thila with sharks, jack fish and mackerels hunting on the top reef. Interesting safety stop with nudibranches, scorpion fish, lionfish and anemones, maybe even a turtle, octopus or colourful mantis shrimp. An unbelievable reef with everything every time. Fish soup with great macro life!
