Other Things to do in Rasdhoo
Perhaps the most breathtaking and amazing place to visit in the Maldives is
the nearby chain of uninhabited islands and sandbanks.
These islands have lagoons, where you can see a real 50 shades of blue with
a beautiful reef in the center. A lot of fish live on the reef, which themselves swim up to
you because they expect something delicious from you. They are already taught this.
Therefore, if you still decide to feed them, then take a bit of bread in a plastic bottle
and mix it with water. But be careful, there can be a lot of them.
You can walk on water!
The second thing is the ability to walk by water between these islands and
sandbanks. There is some magic in the sandbanks because you are on a piece of land without
any plants or palms in the middle of the ocean! Isn’t that fascinating?
The outer reef of the lagoon is rich in its wildlife and you can see sharks,
stingrays, and turtles. But there is always a current between Rasdhoo and the lagoon, so we
strongly do not recommend swimming alone there!
Between Rasdhoo and Thoddoo there is a place where a group of dolphins
gathers in the evenings. They are very friendly and follow the boat. Sometimes they swim so
close that you can even touch them (but you shouldn’t do that). But officially you can’t
swim with them. You can try, who knows, maybe you are lucky and they will come to you.
Usually, night fishing is an evening activity. No need to be a professional
fisherman to catch a fish in the Maldives. It is enough to have only reels and fishing
lines. Here’s a site for more diving information from around the world.
