Why we like it

Carpe Diem Beach Resort & Spa enjoys a unique location on the cusp of the Raa and Baa Atolls on Huruvalhi Island, surrounded by a white, sandy beach with an expansive lagoon. Every May, the manta rays swim past the beach in a natural annual migration to Hanifaru Bay, and return every November on their way out. Explore the house reef and water by day – there is even an inflatable Aqua Park in the lagoon – and dance and dine by night. It’s all about adventure, fun and adrenaline-filled
