South Ari Atoll is one of the prominent locations in the Maldives to catch sight of the resident Manta Ray and Whale Shark populations in the Indian Ocean. Whale sharks are the largest fish species in the world with an average Maldivian whale shark measuring up to 6m in length. Manta Rays are slightly smaller than their counterparts but boast an impressive wingspan of 5m.
Despite their large size, both species are completely harmless to humans and the chance to swim alongside these creatures is a rarity in the world. Therefore, an ocean adventure is one of the most sought-after experiences at Lily Beach where the resort offers guests the chance to get up close and personal with these gentle giants.
Sandbanks are the ideal place to plan getaways where nothing exists except pristine white sand beaches, turquoise waters and the company of a loved one. A sandbank trip is quintessential to any Maldivian experience and can be fashioned into a romantic escapade or surprise for couples.
Walking barefoot on untouched stretches of sand while taking in the panoramic views of blue waters will give guests the real feeling of being in a paradisial destination. Of course, guests can arrange to capture their unforgettable moments on a drone or elevate their sandbank experience by opting to have a BBQ lunch on the site.
The Maldives is not only blessed by picture-perfect backgrounds but by some of the most inspiring marine creatures. Dolphins are a frequent addition to the horizon at sunrise, a peak time when they enter the atoll. By venturing out onto the waters on a dhoni, guests can glimpse these friendly creatures as they playfully leap in and out of the waters.
Both spinner dolphins and bottlenose dolphins are sighted in South Ari Atoll, hence catching a pod of dolphins glide past the dhoni will definitely be a highlight of your Maldivian vacay.
