Resort Description

Clove Beach offers year-round mantas and convenient local island accomodation in the Maldives.

The guesthouse provides budget minded divers with large, new rooms with air-conditioning, free WiFi, en-suite bathrooms and flat screen TVs. The guesthouse is located on a local island just down the road from Gan Airport - ideal for those seeking short and affordable transfers. As it is a local island, this option is great for those looking to meet locals and get a taste of real Maldivian life.

Nearby you'll discover healthy coral reefs home to mantas throughout the year.
