Tourist Attractions

Giraavaru Cave and Kuda Haa

Only five minutes by dhoni from the resort, the two-part thila of Kuda Haa is known for its variety of marine life, including a diversity of colourful fish and turtles. Equally close to the resort, Giraavaru Cave features overhangs and caves, and is home to large schools of midnight snappers, pelagic fish and eagle rays. 

Kuda Faru, Lion's Head, Old Shark Point and Kikki Reef

Just 15 minutes away from the island, Old Shark Point, a shark feeding spot located in a channel between North and South Malé Atolls, presents a world to explore featuring canyons, edges and caves. Sightings include morays, eagle rays, large pelagic fish, stingrays and Napoleons in the caves and washouts, and sharks occasionally. Less than 20 minutes away from the resort by dhoni lays one of Maldives’ most popular dive spots, Kikki Reef, with its 100-metre wall dive, coral-filled overhangs, and marine life. Suitable for divers of all levels, Kikki Reef is best enjoyed at depths of between five and 15 metres where there are caves and ledges galore. Deriving its name from a lion’s head shaped overhang, Lion’s Head makes for a thrilling diving experience, offering the opportunity to see red-toothed triggerfish, sea turtles, Napoleons, leaf fish, stone fish, fusiliers, tunas and sharks. Lion’s Head’s intriguing caves and crevices teem with marine life.  Kuda Faru, 10 minutes away from the island, is best for viewing reef sharks, while soft and hard coral form the top of the reef. The large overhang at 27 metres depth is populated with squirrelfish, turtles, Napoleons and nurse sharks.

Maldives Victory Wreck

Diving the wreck of the Maldives Victory freighter is a fascinating experience. Reached by a 45-minute dhoni ride, this 30-metre deep dive is recommended for advanced divers.   Sunk in 1981, the 110-metre-long freighter is encrusted with coral.
