Omadhoo is located in South Ari Atoll and that is about 70 kilometers far from the capital Male. About 800 people live on Omadhoo but this shouldn’t bother you at all like on many other islands in Maldives it’s not busy here. At this moment bikini beach area officially rather small, but guests can go outside and locals won’t say anything. The beach is clean and nice with long sandbank with water “entrance” to a house reef. There are several sandbanks near Omadhoo, the largest one is located near the island of Hangamedhoo. Picnic island is rather large and it is about 20-25 minutes by dingy from Omadhoo.
Dhigurah is located 96 km southeast of Male in southern Ari Atoll. The length of the island is approximately 4 km. Its width (in its widest part) is 300 m so its shape is quite prolonged. The island gets narrower in its southern direction and ends with a sandbank. Most visitors travel here for the close proximity of the whale shark watching spots.
Picnic island visiting with dinner
One of the best place to feel the wildlife of Maldives is visiting of uninhabited islands. But the most wonderful thing is the opportunity to take a tent and stay on the island for the night. Just imagine – spending the night on an uninhabited island in the middle of the ocean! By the way the there is mobile internet connection as well, 4G, civilization! But well just spending a day by yourselves only on an uninhabited island is also quite enjoying. The island itself is very beautiful with a white beach that surrounds the whole island. There is a house reef where you can see a lot of fish, rays and sometimes turtles.
Manta ray snorkeling
Watching Manta Rays can be described as a dance, as some of nature’s most elegant creatures glide around you in the water, twisting and turning with the currents, providing a truly mesmerising spectacle. Every year, Manta interactions top the lists of Maldives holiday highlights, and those who have been fortunate to witness these displays will understand why. In one time you can see up to 7-10 mantas. They are very friendly and can touch you with their wings. You shouldn’t scare of it.
Whale shark snorkeling
Whale shark safari is truly a spectacular action. The waters around Maldives are teeming with life and one ofthe most celebrated creatures is the whale shark. These creatures are quite huge and are reputed as one of the largest fish in the sea. An adult shark can reach up to an astounding 12 meters in length. Regardless its size a whale shark is not dangerous at all – whale sharks are filtered feeding sharks that feed on mostly plankton. These are harmless majestic sea creatures living in the depths of the ocean. Watching them elegantly swimming through the currents of the ocean is very moving and enjoyable.
One of the most authentic activities is fishing under the magical starlit Maldivian sky. This is a vital activity practised by the locals for generations, which today is attracting exquisitive travelers who wish to take part in the adventure themselves. This might become an ideal family pastime or a memorable couple evening which typically ends up with a barbecue from your catch of the night.
