Great biodiversity - Great at night when big sharks, big sting rays, big turtules, big eels can be seen.  Much less impressive during day dives.

One of the best! - It is rather easy dive. I dived Maaya Thila about 15 times. I saw there my first sharks 7 years ago and since then almost every year. They are always there(grey reef and whitetips). Unbelievable at night - hunting barracudas, one "friendly" residential 2 m barracuda swimming with us for 40 minutes. If you are staying at North Ari Atoll, it is the must.
