Had a fabulous week at Nakari. The food is outstanding here so much effort has gone into it and it shows. A bit more fun and relaxed than Shagra, they could do with injecting it back there too. Preferred the house reef at Shagra but still had some fabulous dives. Do the trip to dolphin house. Incredible diving plus the chance to snorkel with the dolphins, we were lucky and did, informative trip. Do take the time to wander along the beach and pick up the litter, it's amazing what you find. Sadly all washed in from the liveaboards but not in horrendous amounts, every little stroll with a bag helps. Definitely could do with A/C in the en suite huts. Finally found out the best way to sleep was with my feet at the head of the bed so I was closer to the fan. Stunning sunsets to be seen too. Tip, plenty of insect repellent on in the evenings here.
