Diving Hints and Currents:
Apart from Kudarah Thila, Broken Rock is most probably the most well-known dive site in the South Ari Atoll. This Thila is literally a broken rock with a 2-metre wide canyon that splits the small Thila in two parts, from the west to east, giving the reef its name. This canyon is the main attraction on this wonderful submerged reef. Broken Rock is covered in soft corals and only one diver can enter the canyon at a time. On the north side at a depth of around 25-30m, there are two big coral blocks with overhangs and beautiful fan corals which are well worth a visit. The top reef at Broken Rock has great hard coral growth and is an ideal place to find invertebrates like leaf fish and nudibranchs. Depth and strong currents make this Thila suitable only for experienced divers. A dive torch and a surface balloon are both strongly recommended at Broken Rock.
