Lhaviyani Atoll is one of the Maldives’ most popular and diverse diving destinations typified for its sparkling water, fringing coral reefs, plummeting channels and encounters with pelagic species like sharks and manta rays.
Dive sites like Felivaru Kandu have frequent visits from the resident manta rays as they serve as busy cleaning stations. Some of the area largest species wait patiently for their spa sessions with tiny reef fish offering their services.
Out in the blue you will spot sharks and tuna cruising the reef's edge. While encounters are much less frequent, keep an eye out for whale sharks making an appearance.
