Central Atolls

The Maldives - Classic Maldives

The nutrient-rich water surrounding the Central Atolls attracts marine life from the open sea and divers from all over the world. Get up close and personal swimming alongside whale sharks.

These gentle giants are found all year round in the Maldives, tending to favour the western side between May and December before heading east until April. The Marine Protected Area, South Ari Atoll, is one of the best places in the Maldives to snorkel or dive with these amazing creatures.
