“Fantastic dive site”
Review of Banana Reef

Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

Banana reef is one of the best dive site of north male atoll where Snorkelers and divers can enjoy at the same time. We organize this dive 3 time a week.

I´ve been to Banana Reef at least three times and, even though there are many nice areas to dive which are close to Male´, I consider this one to be the best. There is a huge amount of colorful fish to see along that reef and the table corals on the top are quite big and well preserved. Most likely you´ll get to see eels, quite a decent amount of anemone fish and a few schools of fish. I´ve also seen turtles there but not in every trip. If you´re lucky, on your way back to Male´ or Hulhumale´ you´ll get to see some dolphins swimming around too.

Great choice of site close to the airport so no need to stay in a resort. You can just stay in Hulhumale guest house and get a dive trip from there if you are only after the diving in Maldives. This site is just stunning! colorful, calm, lots of fish and rocks teeming with soft and hard sponges. I would love to come back here again with an underwater camera this time.

In and around reef, overhangs, schools of fish, warm water! Coral was beautiful too. All good for my first dive in the Maldives.

Most marine life I have ever seen in a single place. You couldn't see the reef for all the fish at times!
