Coral coverage in this area is a little "hit-and-miss" with some
areas being home to very healthy hard coral gardens and others
featuring only average reef health. However, what seems quite
consistent is the abundance and diversity of fish life in this
area. Many sites exhibit astonishing biomass as well as an
impressive variety of species.
Baa Atoll is known to be one of the better places in the
Maldives for diving with manta rays and whale sharks and at the
right time of year this is virtually guaranteed. This makes this
part of the country very exciting for divers. Add to the fantastic
marine life some of the very best hotels in the islands and you
will not be disappointed.
