Kandholhu has one of the best house reefs in Maldives – when in 1998 El Nino raged in the Maldives, this reef stayed virtually untouched. The slight damage which did occur has recovered fully in the years since.

The Dive School on Kandholhu offers diving in very small groups on some of the nearby top-ten dive sites of the Maldives.


Fan coral A dive instructor or divemaster is on every dive to guide you through the highlights of the Maldivian underwater world.

Because Kandholhu is very small with only a few bungalows, individual supervision of your diving activities is guaranteed. Whether it is your first dive, or you are diving with sharks, you will always have an instructor close by.

Kandholhu has one of the few Decompression chambers in the Maldives, a safety bonus offering you piece of mind under water.

Kandholhu is an exceptionally beautiful small island. Its lush tropical vegetation and white sandy beaches are encircled by a coral reef, renowned as one of the best in the Maldives.
