UNESCO WORLD BIOSPHERE RESERVE
Amilla is in the heart of a special reserve famed for its remarkable marine life and clear waters. It’s perfect for diving and snorkelling any time of year.
From June to October, manta rays and whale sharks reign supreme. Then the devil rays, stingrays and eagle rays reclaim their kingdom. Diversity and sheer abundance of marine life rarely rivalled.
Baa Atoll UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve is resplendent with marine life. Biosphere reserves are designated by UNESCO with the goal of preserving their exceptional biodiversity. With special protected status, a remarkable number of aquatic creatures and a dazzling array of reef fish flourish.
The reserve expands across the entire atoll; a heart-shaped coral ring stretching 23 miles (38km) wide and 28 miles (46km) long. There are 75 islands, but less than three square miles of the atoll is land.
The warm, shallow waters are perfect for exploring year-round, with something to tempt explorers of all ages. Your neighbours will include spinner and bottlenose dolphins, turtles, manta rays, eagle rays, whale sharks, small reef sharks, squirrelfish, trumpetfish, lionfish, batfish, butterflyfish and angelfish, to name but a few.
Amilla Maldives is proud to have one of the Baa Atoll’s most unique reef formations right on its very own house reef. Accessible with a short boat ride, the Amilla Blue Hole is a unique reef formation for snorkellers to explore. And the jewel in the crown of our reserve is Hanifaru Bay – discover more under ‘Experiences’.
HOUSE REEF SNORKELLING
A vibrant underwater world beckons, metres from your bed. Clownfish, squirrelfish and angelfish sew rainbow patterns through the crystal-clear lagoon.

Only 100 metres from our main beach and 50 metres from the end of the water villa jetty is the famous Blue Hole. Explore this wonder of nature right on our house reef by snorkelling or diving. Plunge into the blue heart of this incredible, mysterious reef formation.
HANIFARU BAY SNORKELLING ADVENTURE
Hanifaru Bay is a world-renowned site within Baa Atoll UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. A horseshoe-shaped bay where when the tide, moon, and other conditions are right, mantas and whale sharks aggregate in unprecedented numbers from June to October.
Baa Atoll is one of the best places in the Maldives – if not the world – to spot manta rays and is a well known place to experience the best snorkelling in Maldives.
The Baa Atoll UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve was created in recognition of the incredible biodiversity and importance of the underwater ecosystem in this area.
Reef mantas can have a wingspan of up to 3.3m and whale sharks – technically not sharks but actually the largest fish in the ocean – can grow up to 12m long. Both mantas and whale sharks are generally elusive creatures and are vulnerable to extinction, which makes Baa Atoll – and Hanifaru Bay – even more special.
Mantas typically grace the waters of Baa Atoll UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve between May and November. Peak times for spotting them during this period is during the full moon and the new moon. Whale sharks are also found year-round in the Maldives and from May to November they migrate to Baa Atoll.
Our water-sports team at H.U.B. are pros at tracking mantas and whale sharks. Join them for a thrilling snorkel excursion where we’ll go in search of mantas or whale sharks.
Hanifaru Bay is a world-famous snorkelling site, renowned for attracting exceptionally high numbers of magnificent manta rays and gentle whale sharks.
The incredible site is only 4.8 miles (7.8km) from Amilla Fushi so we’re in a prime location for easy access to Hanifaru Bay. The best season to visit Hanifaru is between May and November.
Why Hanifaru Bay is World-Famous
Mantas and whale sharks aggregate here in extraordinarily large numbers to feed on the zooplankton that becomes trapped in Hanifaru Bay, making for an amazing spectacle if you’re lucky enough to witness it. At its peak there could be as many as 100 mantas plus several whale sharks feeding there at the same time.
Hanifaru is one of the only places in the world where so many mantas and whale sharks aggregate in such unusually high numbers, which has led to international recognition and it being celebrated in major publications including National Geographic.
As the jewel in the crown of the Baa Atoll UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, Hanifaru Bay has been a Marine Protected Area since 2009.
This means the creatures frequenting the area are protected and there are rules in place that protect the environment and limit the number of visitors allowed in the area at the same time.
Coral reefs and many sea-creatures glow at night with natural fluorescence, normally naked to the human eye. Our experienced guide will escort you on a mind-bending snorkelling journey at sunset.
Embark on an exciting adventure to explore some of the most spectacular coral reefs around Baa Atoll. Search for green turtles, reef sharks, napoleon wrasse, moray eels, and much, much more.
