Vattaru Kandu

Diving in Vaavu

A remote channel dive on the southern edge of Vattaru Falhu, Vattaru Kandu is not too demanding unless the currents are running at full speed. The reef next to Vattaru is a fine snorkelling area. Around the entrance are many caves and overhangs with soft corals, sea fans and abundant fish life – barracuda, fusilier and white-tip reef sharks.

Turtles are commonly seen here, as are manta rays from December to April.

Vattaru Kandu is now a designated Protected Marine Area.
