Addu Manta Point

The southernmost atoll of the Maldives, Addu Atoll (previously known as Seenu Atoll) is the only one that was not affected by the 1998 global coral-bleaching event. Addu is world-famous for its large manta rays, the British Loyalty (the biggest wreck in the Maldives), sharks, turtles and a population of big fish year round. It is also known for its brilliant coral patches in the north, and broad barrier reefs with several islands on the east and west. There are a total of four channels (kandus) in this atoll, Gan Kandu, Viligili Kandu, Maa Kandu and Kuda Kandu. There are also a few overhangs and drop-offs scattered around the region. Currents are not as forceful as in other parts of the Maldives, so it’s a great dive location for novices, but it won’t disappoint experienced scuba divers looking for a thrilling dive excursion either.
