DIVING, SNORKELING & WATERSPORTS
The snorkelling and diving experience at Mirihi is second to none. The resort’s Ocean Pro Dive Centre provides facilities and instruction for first-timers through to experienced divers. Regular trips are available for divers and snorkelers to visit a range of over 40 incredible dive sites with a chance of sighting spectacular Whale Sharks. However, you don’t have to be a scuba diver to discover the magic of the deep – the resort has one of the best house reefs in the Maldives, it’s a snorkelers paradise – and the snorkelling adventure awaits at the foot of steps from your villa’s sundeck into the lagoon, where the magnificent reef awaits. Night Snorkelling is also a MUST, allowing you to venture into another world and observe sleeping fish, see different kinds of marine life and discover the vibrancy of the coral’s colours.
Complimentary watersports are also available including kayaks, stand-up paddles and windsurfing. You can also go fishing or hire a speedboat or Dhoni for a private boat trip, or join one of the excursions on offer, including: island hopping; a visit to a local cultural island; whale shark safari, dolphins at sunset cruise or a snorkelling safari.
Nothing can be more romantic than a stroll along the beach in the moonlight, mesmerized by the display of a million twinkling stars, away from any light pollution – except perhaps taking that wonderment one step further and gazing at the planets up close through the lens of an ultra high-powered telescope, set up on the beach with an astronomy guide. Watch the moons orbiting Saturn and see the craters on Mars. Awesome!

Get in touch with your spiritual side by starting each morning with a complimentary yoga session in the pavilion, and guided meditation session in the afternoon.
