Five Rocks is in Dhigurahshu Kandu, just northeast of Digurah Thila. This pinnacle has broken into five pieces that reach from the sandy seafloor at 40m to about 12m. Carved with numerous overhangs, these pinnacles are exposed to the nutrient-rich ocean currents and are carpeted with multihued oft corals. Swirling above the pinnacles are jacks, black-and-white snappers and fusiliers. Where the thila split, the rocks are pitted with caves and huge undercuts. These are adorned with a delicate blanket of soft corals and encrusting sponges. Packed with long-jawed squirrelfish, oriental sweetlips, anthias and moray eels this sections are a favorite with photographers. Broad gorgonian sea fans, black coral trees and crinoids mark the deeper part of the thila. Whitetip reef sharks and stingrays frequent the deeper slopes of the five rocks.
