Thulusdhoo, Maldives

Fundiving - Private 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!

Thulusdho is an island where 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!
There is no alcohol on the island, but often, there is a really cool bar-boat just off the island, where you can quench your thirst with a cold beer, while the sun goes down and the tropical heat makes way for the comfortable evening breeze. From June to October you might even see manta rays feeding on the plankton which is attracted by the lights of the bar-boat! Take a mask and snorkel with you and join them in the warm water for an amazing encounter with these gentle giants.

Your guesthouse – Akiri Surf Grand
Just 20 meters from the bikini-beach you'll find the relaxed guesthouse of Akiri Surf Grand, and a few minutes of walking in the opposite direction will bring you to the dive center.
Your breakfast will be served in the cozy restaurant or outdoors in the lounging garden which is lush and green with endemic vegetation and trees to provide shade. Step out of the garden right onto the Bikini-beach to enjoy the turquoise waters. The guesthouse is very popular with surfers as well as divers which provides a great atmosphere.
