“Other (false) Banana Reefs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

I was staying on Maafushi island on South Male atoll. The hotel manager arranged a snorkelling excursion to what he called "Banana Reef",and even after we showed him the real Banana Reef on a map, he insisted that his was the only Banana Reef. It is something of a scam, although there were a lot of pretty fish at this fake, but it's pretty ordinary, and it looks as though a lot of the coral is dead or dying. Be sure you go to the real Banana Reef, which I guess is near Full Moon island.
