Meedhupparu is the only resort island in this atoll, and for this reason it offers exclusive access to dozens of uninhabited islands and remote dive sites in Raa Atoll. This is a large, all-inclusive resort that spreads over 17 hectares/43 acres of land and has a full array of facilities. In every way this is a naturally perfect resort with lush, thick vegetation, excellent white beaches all around the island, and a shallow, translucent lagoon that is vital for water sports. The main tourist activities include swimming and sunbathing, windsurfing and kitesurfing, water skiing, canoeing, and catamaran sailing, but the most popular activities are snorkeling and scuba diving. Just a few meters from the beach there is a house reef, ideal for snorkelers and novice divers to practice their skills. For more experienced divers there are more than 30 dive sites with more challenging diving conditions and an enormous amount of marine life. Such sites as Fenfushi Giri, Kuroshigiri Canyon are really worth visiting.
