A day of exploring the underwater treasures of the Maldives is a bucket list item for every diver. Don your gear and have some of the most preserved reef in the area almost all to yourself. The dreamscape underneath the water surface around Hurawalhi is inhabited by a whopping amount and variety of reef fish, turtles and coral. The stars of the show are certainly reef sharks, which patrol the reefs and are a regular sight at many of the dive sites, as well as our favourites – manta rays. Watching one getting a ‘spa treatment’ at the nearby cleaning station, or seeing one barrel roll at the feeding station just off Hurawalhi, is exhilarating and memorable – to say the least!
