route MLE MLE male ari vaavu meemu thaa only

The classical route visiting the central atolls of the  Maldives, known as "Best of Maldives", "Central Atolls" or "Magic Maldives", but . . . even going a bit more South. This route gives you a very nice impression of what it is what Maldives has to offer. Almost all highlights can be seen during this trip.

UNESCO made the Baa Atoll a "Biosphere" , so that it is protected and contributes to research and conservation. You also find here the famous Hanifaru Bay, where, with a little luck, in the rainy season, often many dozens of Mantas can be seen (snorkelling) at the same time.

The Ari Atoll has it all. Amazing thila's as well as great channels. In principle you can see pretty much most stuff Maldives has to offer: nice colourful reefs with plenty of fish, but also sharks and manta rays. With a bit of luck you might even spot a whale-shark as in the South there is a population that seems to be there all year round.

The Vaavu Atoll has a some good channels as well as an amazing opportunity to see many nurse sharks during a night dive near Alimatha.

South Malé has some great divespots, especially the channels and thilas on the east are, with a bit of luck of the currents, overwhelming.
