The Maldives is undeniably one of the best destinations to go diving. Here are the top four must-visit dive sites which will afford you an unforgettable underwater adventure.
A protected marine area, the Embudhoo has really strong currents. It’s a great place to spot eagle rays and napoleons. The southern point of the channel is known as the Shark Point due to a large number of grey reef sharks that gather here.
Yet another protected area, Guraidhoo Kandu contains several spots to explore. There many overhangs and a colourful reef which one can explore as it is good with both ingoing and outgoing currents. This point can be easily reached from many a Maldives resort including the likes of Velassaru Maldives as well.
Considered to be one of the best dive sites in the Maldives, the Kandoom Caves is a hit with many tourists who come to the archipelago on diving expeditions. The caves are home to giant moray eels, tube corals, sea fans and sponges among a host of other marine life.
Kuda Giri Wreck
Ideal for beginners or for night dives, the Kuda Giri Wreck has a maximum diving depth of around 40m and has an average visibility of 10-20 meters. The ship exterior is covered with algae, corals, sponges and many types of reef fish.
