Whether you are a diver, a snorkeller or not even keen on water activities, there are many wonderful and unique places in the Maldives that you shouldn’t miss visiting or experiencing. Milaidhoo is the prime location for some of the best dive and snorkel sites in the Maldives as well as being a picture prefect tropical island to explore. Here are some of the must-see places in the Maldives:
1. Baa Atoll
The popular Baa Atoll is known by fans of the Maldives as one of the most beautiful atolls of this island destination. The atoll is recognised globally for its biodiversity, having been designated as the first UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in the Maldives since 2011. Besides visiting the famous Hanifaru Bay, the atoll is especially beautiful when seen from above as the islands from which it is formed are like a necklace of gems scattered in the ocean.
2. Hanifaru Bay
There is no way to talk about the Maldives or Baa Atoll without mentioning the famous Hanifaru Bay. This compact and shallow bay is the biggest known Manta Ray feeding station in the world, where snorkellers have the chance to swim with hundreds of Manta Rays and even with the occasional whale shark. A true once in a lifetime experience, not to be missed.
3. Sandbank or a deserted island
This is probably the most simple thing to do – spending a day with your friends, family or partner on a sandbank or deserted island. While a sandbank has little to no greenery, a deserted island has lush vegetation and shade but no human installations, which makes the trip even more adventurous and special. From resorts like Milaidhoo you can visit a neighbouring sandbank or deserted island and even enjoy unique dining experiences there too.
4. An abundance of diving attractions.
Divers in the Maldives are spoiled for choice and can pick and choose what they wish to see or which underwater creature they would like to encounter – as long as they are common in the Maldives. Of course, it always depends on mother nature’s mood, however the chances for you to tick off several underwater experiences on your bucket list are high.
