The dive sites of the South Ari Atoll are popular for photo opportunities of healthy reefs, prolific marine life and large pelagic encounters.

A favourite amongst the diving community, Vilamendhoo Island Resort is surrounded by a beautiful lagoon and long stretches of palm fringed white sand beach. There are 40 local dive sites to discover.

Divers can explore the impressive house reef for most of the week, but it's possible to get out on the boat to some incredible dive sites such as Vilamendhoo Caves and Khudarah Thila, a protected marine area and a very popular dive, famous for its soft corals and abundant fish life. There are plenty of channel dives where you can drift along looking out for large pelagic encounters, including turtles, sharks and rays. There are a few wrecks to explore, as well as day trips to look for manta rays and whale sharks.
