Activities & Recreation

Snorkeling
The reef around Vilamendhoo is spectacular and very close to the beach. It is a wonderful experience to see the reef and its marine life while snorkeling. To go to the reef, simply walk into the water and snorkel to the inside of the reef. Snorkel through any of the 10 “channels” through the reef to reach the outside of the reef, along the “wall". Snorkel along the reef, in the direction against the current, as there is always some current, sometimes strong.­ If the current is too strong for your experience or comfort, then return inside the reef and return to the beach. When done snorkeling, return through any of
the 10 “channels” through the reef to reach the beach

Diving
The Maldives are beautiful coral islands surrounded by living reef, 26 Atolls in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Water temperature is warm (26 - 30 degrees Celsius) and varies with depth (0 - 30 meters).

Coral is fragile and grows very slowly, about 2.5 cm per year, so to avoid damage, do not touch or step on it. In 1998, the extraordinarily warm waters of El Nino passed throughout the oceans, including the Maldives.­The high temperature killed much coral, resulting in its bleached appearance. Now, the coral is growing, again, and we hope this continues so that in the future, it will be as magnificent as it was in the past.

We also see an abundance and variety of other marine creatures found on the living reef, including 150 species of tropical fish such as sweet lips, trigger fish, butterfly fish, porcupine fish and many more.

Water Sports Center
In addition to snorkeling and diving, there is a variety of other water sports equipment to enjoy including windsurfing, catamaran and kayak. Equipment can be rented and lessons can be booked at the Water Sports Center

Water Sports services are subject to availability and weather conditions. Damage, loss, etc, to the equipment will be charged to the guest at repair or replacement value. Guests may not use any water sports equipment without prior approval from the Water Sports Center staff.

Sports Facilities
