Banana Reef is located inside the atoll, north of Male', past the airport and west of Farukolhu Fushi. The reef is shaped like a banana: hence its name. This is a spectacular dive for beginners and advanced divers. If the current is mild, all divers can enjoy this beautiful reef with lots of soft coral, small canyons and overhangs. At the northeast corner you can swim around some large boulders separated from the reef, fully grown with brilliantly colored soft corals. There are big schools of fusiliers, oriental sweet lips and snappers.

The middle of the reef has a huge overhang created by the currents. From here to the west the reef is a vertical wall and is home to many red tooth trigger fish. The whole site is a fabulous dive. The southern site is a wall with some small caves and again many red tooth trigger fish. The top of the reef is shallow so it is ideal for snorkelers. However if there is an incoming current through the channel, only experienced divers should dive the site as the strong currents produce a washing machine effect that can make buoyancy control difficult. This site is a protected marine area.
