Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi’s House reef

is a unique place for divers and snorkelers alike. While the length of the island and lagoon surrounding reef adds up to a total length of more than 7 km there are a total of 5 dive sites including Maldives best Manta Point, the stretch accessible from the island spans a length of over 1.5 km. As outstanding as Fairmont Maldives is in hosting guests, the Housereef has the same capability for hosting marine live. Almost anything you can imagine in the Maldives has been seen there already, including a passing Whale shark! The reef starts as shallow as 2 meters and drops down to the sandy bottom at around 15 to 20 meters. Following the sandy slope coral blocks can be found until depth levels of 25 meters. The coral life is dominated by healthy hard corals in all possible colors and the fish life is vibrant. While hawksbill turtles can be spotted easily with the right eye by snorkelers and divers, a manta cleaning station at a depth of 15 to 18 meters on the central east side stays reserved for our divers. The same can be said for the guitar ray, occasionally spotted by lucky divers…

But no need to worry about missing out if one does not know how to breath under water yet. Eagle rays, huge school of snappers including the blue striped snappers commonly known as banana fish, sweetlips and lobster show up regularly at any level. Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi’s Housereef is also an ideal place for night dives and host some very unique crabs and other rare night life…

Still not enough?
