As one of the best snorkelling spots on the planet, Hanifaru Bay is undoubtedly the jewel in the Baa Atoll’s coral reef crown. The whole atoll is home to more than one thousand species of fish and over 250 types of coral, while Hanifaru Bay provides a sanctuary for the world’s highest concentration of manta rays and whale sharks, making it a paradise for marine life lovers and underwater adventurers. Each year during the southwest monsoon season, hundreds of sharks and rays flock to the region in search of the zooplankton which funnels into the bay. The best way to experience the bay’s incredible
ecology is to stay on the luxurious private island of Soneva Fushi (a 20 minute boat ride away), for exceptional snorkelling expeditions, followed by uninterrupted beach lounging and intimate candle-lit dinners.
