Huvadhu Atoll - Ayada Resort

The private island of Magudhuva is a 5-star Ayada resort, located in the pristine Huvadhu Atoll less than 20 miles above the equator. It is rated among the top 25 resorts in the world as well as Top Resort in the Indian Ocean 2014 and has received a Green Star Diamond Award in recognition of its efforts to protect and preserve. Huvadhu Atoll is a highly rated favourite within the Maldives for great land-based diving and snorkeling, with good house reefs and access to sites further from shore. This is also a great base for surfing, with small boat trips available out to the best waves.

The dive centre offers excursions to a range of local dive sites suited to most levels of experience, including coral gardens, channels and thilas within an hour’s boat ride. Marine highlights can include sharks, turtles, eagle rays, large pelagic fish, healthy coral gardens and colourful reef fish. Experienced divers may be rewarded with a leopard shark encounter during a channel dive! The remote Huvadhu atoll remains largely undisturbed and unexplored by divers; some of the dive sites here are so newly discovered that they have not yet been named. Day and night dives are offered, as well as courses from beginner to more advanced certifications.
