Rasdhoo Island, Maldives

Learn to Dive - Rasdhoo - DORM (6 days / 5 nights. Incl. 4 dives)

The diving
Dangling like a string of pearls below the Indian subcontinent, the Maldives has always been the picture perfect fantasy of tropical island holidays. With only lush islands in the horizon for hundreds of miles, the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean is a paradise for water lovers. What sets the Maldives apart from other  destinations is the teeming abundance of marine life. Due to the strict sustainable fishing policies, the ecosystems are intact and the reefs are healthy and BEAUTIFUL!
The location of Rasdhoo is within easy reach of some of the most legendary dive sites where all kinds of amazing sea creatures gives the impression of swimming around in a perfect aquarium. It is rather amazing really.

Together with your instructor, you will start slowly from the beach, learning the skills in water that is shallow and clear, and slowly progressing through the course and out on to the reef. It does not get much more unspoiled and we consider it quite an extraordinary place to get your license to dive.

Rasdhoo is a fine little atoll 32 miles west of the capital Male. Consisting of only four islands and a deserted sandbank, the numbers of visitors to this atoll is charmingly low, and Rasdhoo Island still enjoys a largely undiscovered status. Staying on a local inhabited island provides a very different, very REAL Maldivian experience, where the locals are eager to welcome explorers. Rasdhoo has a population of 1200, and is very proud to have a post office and even an ATM.

Your resort
Rasdhoo Island Inn is the pioneer guesthouse on Rasdhoo, with a quiet tasteful atmosphere and only six rooms. It is also the home of a recently opened watersports center. The outdoor dining area has a white sand floor where dinner is served to the evening prayers of the Muezzin of the island mosque. Adam and Molly are your friendly hosts at the house, but if you want the beach, the water edge is only half a minute away.

Your Room
Rooms come with tile flooring, airconditioning, queen size beds, flatscreen satellite television and fridge (You will not find beers in the fridge though, since alcohol is outlawed on all local inhabited islands). All rooms overlook the garden and have private bathrooms with hot and cold water. Free Wifi in the lobby area.
