Small reef fish, nudibranchs and bigger pelagics like tuna and sharks, especially grey reef sharks, and eagle rays live amongst the predominantly hard coral here, some of which has grown up in the shape of a lion's head, other sections of which has grown into other colourful formations. As well as the coral growths there's a steep wall and an overhang.

This dive is off Thilafushi Island, also called the Trash Island, 'cause it's not the prettiest island in the Maldives, it's sadly been damaged by oil and gas drilling nearby, but the rest of the reef is protected and in quite good condition still. The water here is warm, about 30 degrees, but there are strong currents so this is a dive more suited to intermediate or advanced divers.
