Maldives Angaga<br/>Dhigurah Tila

Overhangs and soft corals.

17km South-East of Angaga Island is the reef of Dhigurah Tila. It is the largest reef in the area at almost 500 metres in length. The overhangs are the big draw here and it is a good idea to take a torch to fully enjoy the experience. Small to large overhangs vary in depth from 15 to 25m on the north-east and north-west sides. All are covered with colourful soft corals, gorgonian sea fans and whip corals.

Aside from the stunning scenery, Dhigurah Tila is often a good spot to find napolean wrasse, white tip sharks and sting rays on the sandy bottom. Huge tunas and jackfish are often seen hunting in the blue while sweetlips and groupers are generally found sheltering in the overhangs. As in the photo, sweetlips can be out and about above the reef being cleaned too!
