Like many dive sites in the Maldives, this dive site has many overhangs and plateaus but it is a very popular dive site for another reason. The overhangs that are facing downwards, are completely covered in soft corals of every colour that create a blue, yellow, green, and mustard canvas along the reef.

The top of the reef is found at around 8 metres and the current is normally very mild. The overhangs are large enough for divers to enter them and take a closer look at the overhanging coral gardens. Along with the soft corals, divers can see many black corals, red sponges, and whip corals. There are many fans and hard corals as well around the flatter part of the reef.

Whilst divers come to see the many soft corals, the abundance of fish is also a draw card. Divers can expect to see many different types of fusilier, coral rock cod, emperor fish, and snappers. There are thousands of basslet, lizardfish, and wrasse. From May to July, the atoll is visited by large numbers of sharks and manta rays and divers can expect to see these then.
