Sports & Leisure

Join our excursions for some excitement or to discover the Maldives and the traditional way of life of its inhabitants.

Available excursions include sunset and morning fishing, deep sea fishing, island-hopping, dolphin-watching, snorkeling and special honeymoon excursions.


Island Hopping

Island hopping – see traditional Maldivian houses, with many made of local vegetation and thatch, or coral stones. You will also see the mosque where the Muslim people pray five times a day, visit the local island school and see the many beautiful children. The beauty, culture and way of life on a small island will be explained by your Guest Relations Officer as you make your way through the village.


Snorkeling is the practice of swimming on or through a body of water while equipped with a diving mask, a shaped breathing tube called a snorkel, and usually swim-fins.

Fish are the main attraction versus the coral/ sponges – excellent number and variety of fish.
Reef access points have been introduced.
Access is quite easy.   Walk across the island from the restaurant/ bar area to area shown on the map below as ‘good snorkeling’.
Current – direction varies, off the North beach.
Check the current, walk to your chosen end and wander in at signposted access point.   If current looks strong just wait a bit for it to weaken.

  • Due to strong currents we do not recommend snorkeling or swimming on the east side of the island especially exit 6 – exit 8.
  • Current movement changes from high to low tides during the same day, always check the current (Call reception to check tide movements)
  • Full moon and a New moon cause stronger and unpredictable currents.
    1. Stronger current warnings: Between exit 7 and 8.
    2. Point 3 – near Water Villa’s as it is further away.
  • Do not ever snorkel near exit 7 – exit 8, due to very strong currents, even if you are an experienced swimmer. SAFETY COMES FIRST!

The best snorkeling area is a nice, extensive, house reef where visibility is usually good.

Big Game Fishing

Heart pumping challenges on the open sea. The glint of sun and the tang of salt. A surge of adrenaline as a huge fin breaks the surface. A marlin: toe-to-toe with the admiral of the ocean. The ultimate fishing experience. Land the catch of a lifetime.

Night Fishing

Enjoy the traditional Maldivian “hand – reel bottom fishing”, with our experienced Dhoni crew. You can catch Red Snapper, Barracuda, Groupers, all are fantastic for eating. The dhoni crew will search for the best place to fish and assists you with bait and reeling in the big ones. When you catch your own fish, the Chef will prepare it for you the following day for lunch or dinner in the Main Restaurant. Fishing is known to be relaxing, but add to this the serenity of being on the blue ocean and the song that it sings to you will make this trip a lasting memory.
