Kuda Kandu is a small channel with two small thilas lying inside. With a small ingoing current you can cross the channel along the edge at about 30 metres. Look out for eagle rays, sharks and turtles as well as schools of rainbow runners passing by. The outreefs on both sides slope down from 5 metres to 30 metres and then drop off steeply. Many different varieties of moray eels can be found here. Schools of humpback snappers and oriental sweet lips congregate around the coral blocks.
