Thulusdhoo, Maldives

Fundiving - Dorm acc. (5 days / 4 nights. Incl. 4 dives)

The diving
Thulusdhoo is a destination that brings together the best of the Maldives: the laid back local island vibe, beautiful beaches, hammocks between palm trees and good diving. What makes Thulusdhoo different from other great destinations, is a strong environmental focus and the work that is being done to re-establish coral on reefs that have been damaged during the coral bleaching event that occurred in 2016 in the Maldives and elsewhere.

The diving includes sites with turtles on tap, ripping current dives with loads of sharks and rays with gamefish hunting overhead, sites where the massive schools of colourful reef fish are so laid back that you can swim into and become part of the school. Several manta cleaning stations are in the area around Thulusdhoo for perfect encounters with these gentle giants. The manta ray season is from June to October.

A unique aspect of Thulusdhoo is that many guesthouses line the beach, all with their hammocks and chillout spaces creating one of the best beach vibes available in the Maldives. Being a surfing destination as well means that Thulusdhoo is a mecca for the young, fit and active crowd, so you will fit right in!

Location
Thulusdhoo is an island known for diving and surfing, within 30min of the capital Malé. A beautiful beach with palm trees and a turquoise lagoon is the view of a number of guesthouses that line the beach, with their cafes, swinging chairs and hammocks. Here, the surfing and the diving crowds live side by side on the beach. One block away is the real Maldives, the local village with its steady, slow pace of life, white sandy streets and green plants everywhere. It is all very pretty!

If you want to work on your tan, there are sun beds on the beach in front of the guesthouse and bikinis are definitely OK.

Your guesthouse – Surf Camp
With a beachfront location and fantastic view of the ocean, you'll find Surf Camp. Your breakfast will be served on the veranda which is 30 paces away from the water. The guesthouse is very popular with surfers as well as divers which provides a great atmosphere.

Your Room – Surf Camp dorms
4 people in simple dorm rooms located on the first floor. The rooms of the first floor open to a cozy communal recreation lounge with a view of the beach and the sea 30 paces from the building. Each dorm room has A/C, Fan, WIFI and private bathroom with warm shower. Dorms are cleaned daily. The rooms are by default split between male and female, but mixed dorm rooms might occur in high season. Therefore, no absolute guarantee is given for female-only dorm rooms.
