While the Maldives is certainly blessed with beautiful beaches and it will difficult to peel yourself away from these postcard-perfect stretches of sand, the Maldives has so much more to offer. Its iridescent lagoons are a haven for snorkellers and divers with myriad marine life to discover.

Snorkelling or swimming with manta rays is one of most unforgettable activities you can do in the Maldives and while they visit the Maldivian archipelago throughout the entire year, they visit different atolls at different times of year. The plankton-rich waters of Hanifaru Bay in the Baa Atoll is one of the places to see them (between May and October) but if you want to find out where's best to stay to swim with manta rays at a particular time of year, get in touch with one of our travel specialists.
