About 110Km south of the Capital Male, you find the beautiful island of Dhigurah- a small destination in size, but a paradise for those who love diving and underwater explorations. As the island ends with a gorgeous sandbank, you will also find it to be so picturesque.
For someone who thinks of engaging in island hopping from a nearby resort such as Kandolhu Maldives, the Dhigurah island will be one of the best options because they are closely located.
Getting to Dhigurah
There is no direct flight you can find to reach this island destination. But there are speedboats and a local ferry you can catch from Male, that are in operation on a daily basis.
An ideal island to explore the rare species
Dhigurah is popular for its amazing underwater world, and especially the whale sharks. You can also see turtles, blacktip reef sharks, and manta rays during your explorations- through diving or snorkelling.
Be cautious of this!
If you decide to stay at a Maldives luxury resort in Dhigurah, make sure that you don’t go on sunbathing or walk around in swimwear on Friday because it’s totally prohibited- and if you do, you are fined 100USD!
