Ellaidhoo has one of the best house reefs of any resort island in the Maldives, just 20 metres away from the beach. Lobsters, turtles, white tip and grey reef sharks, jack fish, barracudas and tuna fish, just to name a few, can be observed among the beautiful multi-coloured soft corals of the house reef. If you are lucky, you may also see manta and eagle rays passing by. To the south of the island there is a vertical drop-off up to 25 metres with caves at three different levels starting from 6 metres. There is also a small wreck providing shelter for all kinds of small and large fish. Tourists from resort islands as far as North Male’ Atoll visits on diving excursions to see the spectacular house reef of Ellaidhoo.
