The Rangali Madivaru dive site is located at the southwest point of the big reef plateau near the island of Rangali. The well-known feature of this site is the plethora of manta rays that use this place as the cleaning station during the northeast monsoon. The site was named after this (“Madi” means “ray” in the local language). The reef's highest point at Rangali Madivaru is 8m/26ft, from which it smoothly slopes to the sea floor to 30m/98ft deep. The northern part of the reef has many overhangs, caves, and cracks with an abundance of critters inside. Because of the strong currents that can often appear, the site is mostly recommended for very experienced divers.
