Description: The thila is 40 min out of Hanimaadhoo Island. Suitable for Advanced divers only
The dive spot is made of two separated thilas, the highest point of the first thila is at around 14 mt and it drops to its base until 30 mt. Here it is possible to dive around big rocks separated from the reef that, compared to the reef wall, are the hotspots of marine diversity. Usually the dive has to be done in drift as medium to strong currents can be present. The rocks are covered by nice soft corals and it’s possible to see eagle rays, tuna fish, sharks and all sorts of reef fishes. Barefoot Thila offers great subjects for both photos and videos. Torch light is highly recommended to explore the several overhangs.
