ABOUT HANIFARU LAGOON

Hanifaru Lagoon plan
With the kind permission of iDive Maldives

The protected lagoon of Hanifaru is authorized for snorkelers only, who must be accompanied by a certified guide from the Environment Agency. This unique site allows hundreds of Manta rays to find plankton during rising tide, high tide and just after slack high tide. The best moment to spot rays is during the southwest monsoon, especially in August. Full moon and new moon periods are the best moments of the month to enjoy the site. The lagoon is accessible for divers of all levels.
You will find further information on www.mantatrust.org and diving instructions at the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) (www.epa.gov.mv).
