A dive site named “Bushy East” shows an amazing reef architecture which is always under construction and never will be finished. A very unusual place, especially on the Maldives.
The dive site is located at Addu Atoll, the most southern part of the Maldives. This place was never affected by coral bleaching because of the current situation.
The reef was a recommendation from Axel Horn, Diverland Gan.

    this is amazing and beautiful Norbert. in some ways, it seems to be like the subjects I take picture of in the forest. lichen, moss and mushrooms ;)

  • That’s true Manon, but this are stone corals. It looks like plants but it is made from lime and build by millions of tiny coral polyps. Thank you.
