Maldives - Sunlight Thila

Sunlight Thila is a formation of two small reefs that attract giant manta rays between March and October - when the winds from the south carry a large amount of plankton to this area. Between the reefs lies a 70-meter long sandy bottom boasting small coral formations with plenty of cleaner wrasses. Larger reef can be found nearby the coral blocks inhibited by various schooling reef fishes. Lionfish and triggerfish can be found in the area with occasional visits from green sea turtles.
