Your Destination —
You will be located amidst a pristine reef within the southern rim of the Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll in the southern Maldives, 268 miles south of the capital Male.
Over a 1000 species of fish, coral and other marine life inhabit the waters throughout the Maldives; however given the virtual isolation of the Gaafu Dhaalu atoll, the underwater seascape found here is still undisturbed and untouched awaiting discovery by enthusiasts.
