Kanuhura Corner is situated on the East side of the Lhaviyani Atoll. It is a mildly sloping outreef with a rounded corner at the entrance to the channel. The top reef right throughout the dive is shallow between 8m up to 5 m/26-16ft, and then it drops down onto a sandy ledge and in some areas it drop off steeply. When there is a low current it is ideal to swim out along the channel edge. The site is suitable for all dever levels, maximum depth is 25m/82ft.
