One of the country’s main attractions, the marine life of the Maldives is truly amazing. As you explore the waters around the islands you will come across a colourful cross-section of marine species including angelfish, butterflyfish, clownfish, parrotfish, triggerfish, whale sharks, manta rays and hawksbill turtles. These waters are also ideal spots to see spotted and spinner dolphins as well as blue, sperm and bryde’s whales. On land the islands are where one can observe a variety of seabird species, while the flying fox and a type of shrew are among the mammals that can be found in the Maldives.
