Giraavaru Kuda Haa Thila
Level: Open Water Diver
Distance from Centara Ras Fushi: 5 minutes
There are two peaks over a length of about 100 meter and although the thila does not have many spectacular rock features as other sites do, it is a Marine Protected Area and the fish life is as prolific and diverse as any reef in the Maldives. The twin peaks rise from the atoll floor to 10 meter and 8 meter and among the delicate coral on the reef top are numerous species of damselfish. Circling above the reef are large schools of flame bassets and blue-striped snappers. There are also many freckled hawk fish, long-nose filefish, scorpion fish and, as always on a site like this, sharks and Giant trevally’s hunting their prey.
