Ideal for beginners and advanced divers Vaavu Atoll is a relatively untouched emergent paradise, made up of 19 beautiful islands and atolls, it is the smallest and least commercialised area of the Maldives. This is apparent when you go diving as the pristine and clear blue warm waters are teeming with fish and larger marine life, as well as channels, submerged pinnacles, walls and overhangs. There are 23 dive sites to explore, the experienced and friendly dive team who runs the resort’s dive centre will ensure you get to the top spots. To guarantee sighting the mantas we recommend you plan your holiday between May and July, the rest of the year you will definitely spot grey and white tip reef sharks, huge shoals of barracuda, snapper and trevally.
