Diving in Medhufushi
When to go to Medhufushi
The weather on Meemu Atoll, as well as the rest of Maldives, is ruled by the two monsoons: the northeast monsoon, which brings dry and sunny weather, and the southwest monsoon, which is accompanied by intense rainfall. The best season for diving is during the northeast monsoon, from December to April, because this time has the best visibility and also warm water. due Still, diving during the southeast monsoon wet season can also be good. During the monsoon the rains are heavy but short, and there is often sunny weather. Also, there are more manta rays and whale sharks present during the southwest monsoon. The average annual air temperature is 32-34C/90-93F, the sea water temperature is between 30-32C/87-90F throughout the year, and the low sea temperature here is 26C/79F. What to see The dive sites near the island of Medhufushi have a background of bright, healthy corals, and divers can spot very diverse sea fauna species, including various reef fish, turtles, Napoleon wrasses, various kinds of sharks and rays, and dolphins.
Scuba diving in Medhufushi
The island of Medhufushi is located in the eastern part of Meemu Atoll, and despite being only 900m/0.5mi long and 90m/295ft wide, it is one of the two islands in Meemu Atoll that have a developed tourism infrastructure. Medhufushi has beautiful, white beaches for getting some sun after swimming in the clear lagoon water. At the same time, various water sports activities are available: wakeboarding, kitesurfing, waterskiing, and tubing. There is a range of conditions for diving, from extra-easy to challenging levels of difficulty. The small island of Medhufushi is located in a spacious lagoon that has a range of dive sites ideal for learning to dive, with easy and relaxing dives. One of the inner lagoon sites, Turtle Bay, has a rich reef with multiple overhangs that is easy to navigate and is a habitat for diverse fish. Plenty of dive sites are located outside the lagoon, where more experienced divers will face challenging conditions worthy of their skills. One of these sites, Muli Corner, is another place where turtles congregate, but there are powerful currents. Some of the dives not to be missed are Medhufushi Thila (astonishing reef with numerous overhangs and vibrant, soft corals), the Giant Clam site (astonishes divers with its diverse topography of caves, caverns, and overhangs), and Triple Rock (exceptionally diverse fish float through large coral formations).
