Golden Wall features several vertical walls, caves and overhangs. Along the exterior of the reef the wall is covered with yellow sponges and is teeming with colorful reef fish. The dive begins on the outer reef and then extends into a channel.

When to go

Although diving in Maldives is available all year round, the high season is from December to May. The average water temperature stays within 25C/77F-30C/86F range.

What to see

With visibility being pretty good, divers will appreciate the opportunity to photograph local marine life and stunning soft corals. While doing this dive it’s possible to spot napoleons, moray eels, turtles and lots of reef fish. During the times when the current is stronger divers may also observe stingrays, eagle rays (especially in the channel where they prefer to congregate), sharks, schools of trevally and tuna who are attracted to this site.
