Kandolhu Island Beach
Even in the Maldives, the blissful beauty of Kandolhu Island Beach is unsurpassed. Located 70 kilometres southwest of Malé in the North Ari Atoll, the circular sandy beach is lapped by emerald-green waters that are home to one of the liveliest coral reefs in the country, as well as some of the best diving around.
Also known as the Blue Caves, Maalhos Thila is a shallow pinnacle dive prized for its kaleidoscopic colours, while the Fesdu Wreck, once a 30m coastal fishing trawler, now forms a 30m-deep artificial reef awash with marine creatures. The island’s lush green interior is also home to a choice selection of resort restaurants too.
