Diving & fishing:

Baa Atoll is rapidly becoming a well-known destination for diving enthusiasts, above all during the period between May and November. There are plenty of fish in the small shoal of Dhonfanu and in the marine reserve of Dhigalhi Haa. But the most interesting spot in the atoll is the coral ring of Hanifaaru. On the western side the coral reef splits into two, creating a cul-de-sac corridor, which you enter opposite the fine deserted island of Hanifaarurah. During the South-West monsoon, in the presence of an out-flowing current, large quantities of plankton are drawn inside the corridor, with high concentrations at the dead end. This occurrence attracts many mantas and some whale sharks, both great predators of plankton: a sight which is unique in its kind (photos by National Geographic available here). All you need is a mask and a pair of flippers. Lhaviyani also has unique dives to offer: the massive wrecks of the Shipyard, the amazing corner of the Kuredu Kandu and the wonderfull Fushifaru Thila, rich of sharks from November to April and mantas in the rest of the year.
