Since 2011, the rainbow caves have been part of a UNESCO preservation area and so the diving here is fantastic as the marine life is in great condition. The landscape here is characteristic of the Maldives with many overhangs, caves, and pinnacles.

The overhangs are normally covered in soft corals and divers can investigate these to spot the many shrimps, crabs, nudibranchs, and other macro life that seek protection within the corals. As the marine life is protected, the area has many opportunities for fantastic photography and it is becoming a popular spot to capture photos of very healthy corals.

There is an abundance of fish as well here and without the interference of fishing, the marine life is blossoming. Divers can normally definitely spot batfish, pufferfish, oriental sweetlips, lionfish, moray eels, barracuda, scorpionfish, banner fish, wrasse, parrotfish, and fusiliers. Rare types of marine life are also usually spotted here and so divers often come here to see marine life such as dolphins, lemon sharks, white tip reef sharks, black tip reef sharks, grey reef sharks, manta rays, eagle rays, and even whale sharks.
