This atoll is the location of many different dive sites and has examples of all of the different types of dive sites in the Maldives. Divers can choose between channels, pinnacles, reefs, and wall dives in a small area and many divers choose to visit the atoll by liveaboard to be able to visit as many sites as possible. The two most famous sites here are Maya Thila, a pinnacle dive, and Fish Head, a site known for having a diverse range of fish. There are also three wreck dives that can be completed as well and these are often used as excellent night dives.

The outside reef is also commonly dived to 40 metres, as it has very deep sections that descend down to below 160 metres. These types of depths mean one thing and one thing only – pelagic fish. Most reef sharks are spotted here at the outer reef including grey reef sharks, white tip reef sharks, and black tip reef sharks. Added to this, there is a good chance to see hammerhead sharks, lemon sharks, silvertip sharks, and nurse sharks. There are stingrays, eagles rays, and between November and April, manta rays. Turtles are commonly spotted and divers can see both green and hawksbill turtles.

On other parts of the reef where the depths are shallower, divers will be able to see ribbon eels, ghost pipefish, frogfish, leaf fish, moray eels, groupers, large schools of trevally, tuna, and barracuda. This list is not limited and divers should be able to see a larger amount of marine life. Given the variety of dive sites available, there really is something for every diver on this atoll.
