Diving

Staying at Reethi beach offers access to some of the best diving in the Maldives in the relatively unexplored Baa Atoll. The house reef is on a channel along the western side of the island. It harbours a wealth of marine life and must be one of the best house reefs in the Maldives. During the northeast monsoon (May - September) it is not uncommon to see Whale Sharks and Mantas.The marine species are Guitar Ray, Eagle Ray, Frog Fish, Leaf Fish, Stone Fish and Nudibranchs. The majority of dive sites are reached within 20 minutes by boat - the furthest being just under an hour. Over a third of the diving is on Thilas (submerged reefs), some of which are split by canyons and even by Maldivian standards, are literally teeming with fish and under the overhangs, sea fans and black corals are found. It is not uncommon to see Sharks, Barracudas, large Groupers, Napoleon Wrasse and Mantas (in season); The Outer Reefs of the north-eastern Baa Atoll slope gently down into the blue and one often comes across large Turtles and Eagle Rays, incredibly rare pink fire coral, fantastic soft corals and much larger fish in the blue. Two of the more popular sites  include " Donfan Thila" with it's unique underwater landscape and it's massive amount of marine life. The 'Blue Hole' is as the name suggests is a blue hole with  an entrance at 23 metres and exit at a 8 metres level.
