Resort Description

Holiday Home @ Dhigurah Dive Blue is a small guesthouse on Dhigurah Island, 4 minutes walk from the beach. 

The South Ari Marine Protected Area offers famous dive sites for mantas and whale sharks. Over 40 biodiverse reefs, wrecks, wall dives and pinnacles set the scene for drift and shark diving. Macro creatures include leaf fish, ghost pipefish, frog fish, nudibranchs and more.  

The island is a long (3.2km) stretch of white sand home to around 600 locals. The interior is filled with white sandy pathways and Maldivian vegetation. 

Walking tours, movie nights, water sports, cycling, canoeing, cooking lessons and fishing trips are offered.  

What to see

The Ari Atoll is famous among divers for its volume of pelagic species. It is not uncommon to see manta rays, whale sharks, hammerheads, guitar sharks, turtles, grey reef sharks and eagle rays all within a week’s diving.

While the Ari Atoll may be heaven for big species, it features a good deal of macro life as well. Frogfish, zebra morays, nudibranchs, blueline snappers and hundreds of other colorful fish species reside here.

Wherever you dive in the Ari Atoll, you are sure to be slack-jawed at least once a day by the sheer number of pelagic species you will encounter.
