What to see

Most of the marine life in the South Male Atoll is of the larger variety due to the strong currents that favor the area. It is here that divers spot eagle rays, turtles, grey sharks, reef sharks, mantas, whale sharks, schools of fusiliers, barracuda, trevally and even hammerhead sharks (from May to November).

Of course, smaller marine life also exists, especially in the interior of the atoll. To the delight of divers, anemones, shrimp, lionfish, squirrelfish, soldierfish, unicorn fish, morays and batfish are commonly spotted.

Wherever you dive, the wild ride known as the South Male Atoll is sure to give you at least one “wow” moment.

COMO  Cocoa  Island  is  an  intimate  private  island  in  the  Maldives,  located  among  South  Malé͛s  sandy  atolls.

 The  resort  possesses  an  impressive  house  reef  wrapped  in  white  beaches  and  turquoise  waters,  with  a  long  sandbank  extending  into  the  ocean.  Look out for dolphins, turtles, reef fish and macro creatures nestled amongst coral gardens.

33  elegant  individual  villas  are  reached  by  wooden  walkways. Natural  materials  are  carried  through  to  the  clean-lined,  airy  interiors  where  the  inside/outside  space  merges,  with  floor-to-ceiling  glass  windows  opening  up  to  a  private  deck  for  slipping  in  and  out  of  the  water.  

Ufaa,  the  resort͛s  restaurant,  serves  Mediterranean  and  Indian  cuisine  with  an  emphasis  on  fresh  local  produce  and  seafood,  while  Faru  Bar  is  one  of  the  best  places  to  watch  the  famous  Maldivian  sunset.  

COMO  Cocoa  Island͛s  award-winning  COMO  Shambhala  Retreat  offers  rebalancing  treatments,  massages  and  facials.
