Maalhos Thila

Also known as Blue Caves, this thila dive site is famous for its amazing array of blue and purple soft corals. The name comes from the large overhangs which you can easily swim inside of and have a look around.

Other than the magnificent coral life, here you can enjoy large schools of blue-striped snapper, interesting macro life, as well as grey reef sharks and white tip reef sharks.
