Scuba diving in Three Palms
The Three Palm dive site is located at the southern side of Rasdhoo Atoll, Maldives, only 10 minutes away from the island of Kuramathi. The dive site features a beautiful wall that can be dived at various depths, so this dive site is suitable for divers with different levels of experience. The wall is overgrown with colorful soft and hard corals, where careful divers and keen photographers can spot some interesting types of nudibranchs. When they descend slowly along the wall at a depth of around 15-25m/49-82ft divers will see three impressive coral blocks that resemble huge palm trees, hence the name of this dive site.
When to go
Divers can dive at the Three Palm dive site all year round. However, the best diving conditions are from December to May. The average water temperature is 26-29C/79-84F throughout the year.
What to see
When exploring the wall, divers will see beautiful soft and hard corals scattered along the wall with all the associated fauna, including various types of colorful nudibranchs. In surrounding waters divers can see cruising stingrays, whitetip reef sharks, hawksbill turtles, and barracudas.
