As its name indicates, the Best of the Maldives route is designed to show you the best side of Maldives! You will get to visit deserted islands, local villages and idyllic sand banks. You will also have the opportunity to experience some breathtaking snorkeling on the reefs and enjoy world famous dive spots with abundance of manta rays, loads of different shark species and giant whale sharks. On this itinerary you will visit five atolls: Vaavu, Rasdhoo, Male, South and North Ari.
Maldives has a very special underwater landscape. The country has 26 gorgeous atolls - ring-shaped coral reefs that end up encircling relatively shallow lagoons. These are usually connected to the open ocean through different points through which the water enters and exits, originating channels (called “kandu” locally) with currents rich in nutrients. Based on the reefs’ geographical formation, diving activity in the Maldives can be carried out in either these channels, in the “thilas” or “giris” (underwater rock pinnacles that develop from 30-40 metres to nearly up the surface) or in the “faru” (the edge of the atolls). Learn more about the coral reef system of the Maldives.
