Diving or snorkelling in the Maldives simply means surrounding yourself with Manta rays, whale sharks and marine turtles while witnessing the most extensive coral reef system in the Indian Ocean. Here are some of the best diving and snorkeling sites for you to try if you get a chance one day.
To explore this first-ever dive site, all you’ve got to do is to check in to a nearby resort the likes of Grand Park Kodhipparu and step out! Mind-blowing views of the corals, fish, and squirrelfish are all yours then.
Rasfari is a great diving spot for many travellers spending their beach escapes at Maldives island resorts. It is also a wonderful site to spot grey reef sharks and silvertip sharks.
Advance divers prefer this site and it also provides the best shark shows in the Indian Ocean. Among the creatures that will come to you to greet you, there can be eagle rays and jackfish as well.
Maaya Thila is a great spot to try out moonlight diving. You don’t need to be an advanced diver to try this experience out, but the ultimate experience can be more than just awesome.
