Miyaru thila and Miyaru Faru
Close to one another, these reefs are named after Sharks, as the word Miyaru roughly translates into Shark. This is an awesome place to see sharks. There is a large overhang at about 90 ft, and you can cling onto this area and get a great vantage of the action in the location. Usually seen with an ingoing current, the sharks are usually accompanied by sightings of other pelagics like barracuda, trevally and tuna. Eagle rays are occasional visitors and are seen hunting around the reef.
The Miyaru Thila is in the middle of the nearby channel to the north. The long, narrow reef is located at 40ft depth and has a lot of large coral rocks on the northern edge. Huge schools of fusilier, napoleon, eagle rays and trevally are attracted to this reef, and powder blue surgeons are occasional sightings. Both these reefs are good to dive with an incoming current.
