In the middle of the Biyadhoo Kandu, at the north of Kandooma island located this great thila, considered one of the best dive sites in North Male. The west edge of the thila is called Jack Corner, the best time to do this dive site is with strong outgoing current, where barracudas, grey reef sharks, white tip sharks, groupers, jacks and trevally will stay around the corner, while other fishes stay on the reef. Below Jack Corner there is small cave at 23m/75ft with lots of snapper and big eye trevally inside. Very strong currents ( > 5 knots).
