Why we like it 

This island resort is the perfect place to enjoy the underwater world of the Indian Ocean. Snorkel some of the world's most treasured reefs within a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. Plankton blooms during the months of May to November attracting mantas by the hundreds, often accompanied by whale sharks feeding along side of them.
