“Did not live up to expectations”
Review of Banana Reef

Reviewed January 2, 2013

There was lots to see and some very interesting spots, but in my opinion, I got a bored on both the dives we did there... mind you it is still a very good dive... just did not live up to the hype

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.
