The diving sites around Sun Aqua Vilu Reef Maldives have everything to offer, from easy, long reef diving with the possibility to see whale sharks, tuna fish, sharks, eagle rays, mantas and turtles from thila and giri dives with stunning coral formations and an amazing variety of reef fish and gobies.
The variety of corals and reef fishes is greater then in other Atolls and the diving is easier because of the wide channels and the shallower drop offs.
At one dive site the batfish are extremely friendly and play with the divers all dive long.
