Hanifaru Bay Adventure
experience the unesco biosphere reserve
Visiting Hanifaru Bay
Manta rays and whale sharks in the Maldives are wild creatures. We can never guarantee a sighting. Wildlife sightings are subject to weather conditions, the ocean climate and the temperament of these gentle oceanic giants.
As a Marine Protected Area and Maldives UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, regulations regarding the dates and times of visits protect the aquatic wildlife and limit the number of visitors allowed in the area at once.
Diving is not permissible at Hanifaru Bay.
