Since 2012, the resident marine biology team at our Eco Beach resort has taken naturally broken pieces of coral and planted them in the island’s lagoon, in areas where the corals flourish. What exists now is a little world under the water that is monitored and measured over time. Guests are invited to a Maldives nature experience where they can build on this and add their name or a dedication to the structure – leaving an important environmental legacy for the future.
Our wild Dolphin friends are never far away. They’re easy to spot as they play in the morning sun and bask in the warm evening sun. Morning cruises on select days will take you to see the Spinner dolphins perform their happy acrobatics. Closer to the island, Bottlenose dolphins leap over the wake of the boats. On very rare occasions, Risso’s dolphins are spotted near the island. In November 2015, a pod was seen. These majestic creatures are as dazzling as they are enigmatic.
By taking a personal guided tour with a marine biologist, your Maldives Nature Experience will be so much richer. Learn all about the different species that live in the waters around us. See the myriad characterful, colourful reef fish and the much-spotted timid Blacktip reef sharks, amid some of the best snorkelling spots around the island.
