MAIN DIVE AREAS ON THE NORTH COAST
This is one of the best travel tips for visitors as Mnemnba Atoll is probably the best diving area on the whole island and offers a variety of diving sites that are suitable for both beginners and experienced divers, with visibility often in excess of 20 metres. Thanks to the circular shape of the island there are many sites that are sheltered from drifts, and Mnemba, in particular, has a shallow but rich coral reef, with excellent dives at considerable depths and incredible water clarity for good photography.
Tumbatu offers diving from depths of two to eighteen meters and on the west side of the Island, divers will be met by a healthy and colorful reef with stunning hard coral, turtles, cuttlefish, rays and other marine life. Tumbatu is also well-known for shallow reef snorkeling.
