Adventurous Things to do on Dhigurah Island - Top Thrilling Activities to Enjoy on Dhigurah Island

Blessed with all the natural attributes characteristic of a Maldivian paradise, Dhigurah Island is an adventurer's dream destination. From exploring the underwater landscapes off the coast of the island to island hopping, here are the best things to do during a tour of Dhigurah Island.



Tipped to be among the best base locations for a diving holiday, those who are staying at The Residence Maldives Dhigurah will find idyllic diving hubs right on their doorstep. As one of the best things to do in Maldives, no trip to the paradise archipelago would be complete without exploring the coral reefs and the marine life that make the islands a prime diving destination. Some of the top dive sites are located within close range of Dhigurah Island. Just 10 minutes from the island is Kudarah Thila where one can spot sharks and reef fish while Manta Point is also a great diving hub where the area's namesake species congregate between December and April. Broken Rock is another dive site that's easily accessible from the island while Dhidhdhoo Beyru is a well-known shark and manta ray hotspot from May to September.



Due to the rich marine life heritage of the dive sites around its periphery, Dhigurah is also a snorkeller's paradise. Whale sharks are some of the most commonly spotted species on snorkelling expeditions in this area.


Island Hopping

Adventurers should not miss out on the chance to explore the handful of inhabited islands located near Dhigurah. Lined with stunning beaches and tropical jungles, these islands offer travellers the chance to venture beyond their resort base on Dhigurah Island.


Night Fishing

As one of the most unique activities available to tourists on Dhigurah Island, a fishing expedition in the veil of the night can be a totally different experience from a daytime fishing tour. Setting out around 10 pm, night fishing excursions do not venture too far beyond the outskirts of the island to enjoy a spot of line fishing by starlight. The most memorable part of a night fishing stint in this area is that most tour operators also include a barbeque dinner of one's catch at the conclusion of the tour.


Dolphin Watching Safari

Tourists who are based in Dhigurah may be surprised to find that dolphins can be spotted from the shore of this pristine island, but nothing will prepare one for an up-close encounter with the mammals on an organised dolphin-watching tour.


Wine and Dine like a Local

No trip to Dhigurah Island would be complete without savouring the local delicacies served up in its top restaurants. A culinary adventure awaits all those who pay a visit to some of the best eateries on the island. Hermit's is known for its Biryani while Absolute Thai is a grilled fish and Tom Yum haven for the masses. Other restaurants worth checking out, on the other hand, include the Malaveli Restaurant, the Long Beach Restaurant and Café Xenzibar.
