ABOUT MIYARU KANDU

Edit

A protected marine area, Miyaru Kandu offers divers a wonderful place to explore the many caves, coral formations and ocean life in the region. This particular location is comprised of the main channel which runs nearly 300 meters and is filled with marine life. Miyaru Kandu is on the southern side of the passage and located next to a prominent reef. The entire channel and surrounding area have been declared a protected marine area.

You will see many coral rocks and formations that are covered in coral growth as well. There is one particular rock that rises a stunning 10 meters above the floor of the ocean which is certainly a popular sight. In addition, there is a rather prominent cave on the north corner of the diving area that is roughly 30 meters. This is the place to spot the numerous marine life in the area.

Abundant Sea Life:
You can find a myriad of ocean life in Miyaru Kandu starting with the coral that envelope the area quite nicely, providing a home for the numerous pelagic fish, saddled puffer fish, lizard fish and blue-faced angel fish. However, the very name “Miyaru” is Dhihevi for “shark”, so it is no surprise to see an abundance of grey reef sharks, white-tip or black tip in great numbers.
For those who enjoy watching sharks, this is the place to be. Fortunately, these are reef sharks so they present very little to any danger as long as you keep a respectable distance. However, the sharks are so used to divers that a closer inspection may be possible.
