Manta Point

Mantas during north-east monsoon season

Emas Thila also knows as Manta Point is about 1 Km long and is a gathering point for Mantas during the north-east monsoon season.  It is also an excellent drift dive on both the north and south sides of the Thila.  The reef top is at 15 meters and on the western side of the Thila but rises to around 10 meters on the Eastern side.  Mantas mostly focus on some coral rocks on the reef top on the outside of the Thila.  Along the reef edge is a shallow ledge at 15 meters.  The outside reef slopes gently to 30 meters before dropping more steeply on the outside wall.
