W Maldives sits upon one of the best house reefs in the Maldives. The oval-shaped paradise is home to hundreds of species of marine life ready to be explored. Accessible from anywhere on the resort, jump in with snorkelling gear at any time and enter a whole different world.

Guests can have the adventure of a lifetime by swimming with reef sharks and turtles just outside their retreats, an experience they will never forget. For those looking to venture into deeper waters the diving & watersports center DOWN UNDER & WAVE offers a myriad of water activities.

The house reef is home to schools of Angel, Parrot, Hawk, and Moorish fish. One can glide along tiers of colorful corals and discover diverse eco-systems boasting coral gardens, sea fans, starfish and hermit crabs. Swim further to the edge of the reef and watch juvenile sharks, stingrays, dolphins, and turtles roam the deep waters, coming close to the reefs from time to time.

Grab the black light torch and discover the magical bio-fluorescence experience during night diving or snorkeling. Deep within is the W under water monument with corals growing around.
