The Maldives’ calm, shallow waters provide the perfect place to learn sailing while the open water can offer challenges for the more experienced.
For those who don’t dive, there is no need to miss out on the spectacular marine life of the Maldives. With just a mask and flippers, there is plenty to see around each resort and in the lagoon, with Maalifushi’s undisturbed waters making for some excellent opportunities. Children also much enjoy snorkelling, with complimentary gear provided to guests of Maalifushi.
The Maldives are rapidly becoming popular among surfers, with some great long curving atoll reef waves. Farms break is 25 minutes away on guided boat trip with Tropic surf. The waves here are medium-sized while more challenging barrels are also available within reach of the resort. Best of all, crowds are non-existent.
Although the Maldives are rated amongst the top ten diving destinations in the world, many experienced divers would put them in the top five. The sheer abundance of marine life and the clear visibility make this one of the greatest underwater regions on the planet, with Thaa Atoll’s particular status in the dive world assured by seasonal sightings of whale sharks, hammerheads and Manta Rays. All of this is within easy reach of Maalifushi.
Fishing is part of the Indian Ocean culture, heritage and for many in the islands, forms a vital livelihood. Thaa Atoll in particular has some of the most productive waters, and a very well regarded fishing industry. Resort guests who want to go fishing have access to our expertise, equipment and boat captains.
