Best house reef in the Maldives?

There’s a lot of talk around about who has the best house reef in the Maldives & i’m pretty sure every resort thinks theirs is best. All I can say is that I could go to Ellaidhoo, or to give it its official name, Ellaidhoo by Cinnamon, Maldives, & dive 3 times a day on their house reef & not get bored. Saying that, Dive & Sail offer some pretty good boat dives too, most notably in my case to Fish head & Manta kandu.

Always take a test shot in the mirror to check your strobes are firing correctly, then realise one of them is severely under power & will die imminently 🙁

1 of 6 or 7 Manta rays we saw on a morning trip to Manta Kandu.

Pretty looking resort huh? Even better when the baby Black tip reef sharks were swimming around in that lagoon. Ellaidhoo Maldives is certainly a top resort with a fantastic house reef and deserves to be on your list of destinations to visit, made all the better by some great food served up in the restaurant too.
