North Male Atoll offers its guests perfect conditions for water sports and beach vacation. For example, it’s, of course, diving. There are several wonderful marine reserves in the local waters. You’ll be probably encouraged to dive in Girifushi Thila where you can see perhaps the most colourful and flamboyant coral reef of the Maldives. We highly recommend you to dive in one of the highest underwater rocks, then you should definitely do diving in Rasfali and Embudhu Canu where you can see reef sharks and have an excursion to a sunken ship. Specialists particularly recommend diving on the outside of reefs as it’s where you can watch a bunch of tropical fishes, mollusks and the most fascinating corals. These trips are usually for professionals as there are undercurrents on the outside. To make your dives as safe as it’s possible, you have to get a special drift-diver certificate. Underwater caves covered with corals where thousands of fishes swim are extremely breathtaking as well, you can see them on Banana Reef near Hulhule Island. There are perfect conditions for beginners there. First of all, diving schools where you can take courses, rent equipment and dive with an experienced instructor are almost on every island.

You’ll be able to see barracudas, bunches of sardines, sea turtles, and, certainly, sharks.
