Located in the South Mal Atoll, just 35 km south of Mal? International Airport via a forty-minute speedboat ride, this tropical isle is favoured because of its close proximity to many excellent dive sites. The Kandooma Channel, Caves and Thila (an undersea mountain) all contribute to making this area one of the most sought after destinations for divers. For the non-divers, the crystal clear waters surrounding the island provide countless popular areas to swim and snorkel. Enthusiastic surfers will also be delighted with the reef breaks on the north east side of the island from the swell that comes in off the ocean.
