Time from Lily Beach:
One of our most northerly dive sites lies in the Omadhoo channel, two thilas meet, to give it the nickname of the “Big Valley”. In the area between the thilas large coral blocks form an interesting
landscape. With numerous overhangs along the reef there are many colourful hard and soft corals, as well as the infamous long-nose hawkfish hiding in the black corals. Looking out into the blue, divers can often see napoleon wrasse, barracuda, eagle rays and white tip reef sharks. Large schools of bannerfish, snappers and fusiliers are found swarming above the reef top. Omadhoo is widely regarded as one of the true highlights of South Ari Atoll.
