Dive site: Mahal Caves
If you sail in the south direction inside the atoll you’ll arrive to Mahal caves, a giri (pinnacle formation) that is a 40-minute boat ride from the resort. It’s a comfortable dive site that all levels of divers can enjoy. The top of the giri is around 3 meters deep, populated by hard corals and different species of reef fishes. Descending few meters you can admire a colourful wall of beautiful soft corals and caves that host eels, lionfish and lobsters. At 20 meters of the pinnacle you will find a sandy bottom. If you love macro, this site is perfect for you. We suggest having a torch with you to find small animals, like nudibranchs and shrimps. In addition, if you keep an eye watching the ocean side, there’s a chance to see snappers, tunas, bluefin trevally, and sometimes whitetip reef sharks.
