This dive site consists of 3 thilas which are located in a sheltered location in the channel between Lily Beach and Vilamendhoo. Protected from current most of the time, the reef is suitable for all to enjoy. The middle Thila is especially charming, covered with hard corals and wonderful coral blocks, with glassfish and squirrel fish in between. On them you can often find flatworms. Stingrays can be found in the sand and, if you are lucky, you might find sleeping nurse sharks in the overhang.
