Manta rays are the Maldives’ signature species. Plenty of people travel to the archipelago just to catch a glimpse of these giant ‘birds of the deep blue’, and North Ari Atoll is their great stronghold. Whether diving or snorkelling, if you choose the right spot, there’s a good chance of seeing them.

Elsewhere, giant whale sharks are common in May, while several species of dolphin and whale may be encountered at any time of year. Nondivers can, of course, sample the multi-coloured splendour of local sea life at any of the coral reefs surrounding their resort.
