Scuba Diving Sites
Fushivaru Thila is one of the premier scuba diving sites in the Maldives. Fushivaru Thila is a top-rated Maldives dive site in the Fushivaru Kandi region, located towards the east side of Fushivaru Island, now a protected marine area. Fushivaru Thila dive site is the best diving spot, beating the nearby Fushivaru Corner and Fushivaru Giri, in terms of dive enjoyment and features. Even advanced divers will be spoilt for choice at this stunning Maldives dive spot. The thila is situated close to the edge of the atoll, bang in the middle of a 500m wide channel separating the reefs of Fushivaru and Madhiriguraidhoo Faru. The thila measures 150 meters in length, 50 meters in width, and stands tall at around 10 meters at its highest point. At any given end, the top is at a depth of 16 meters. The thila can be navigated in two ways. The outside part, which is slightly deeper at around 30 meters, is the entrance to the atoll. The entrance part and the thila itself can be explored in one dive, or two separate expeditions. Depending on the current, alongside the cliff edge you will find grey reef sharks, hammerhead sharks, barracuda and eagle rays.
