DIVE RASDHOO - PADI and SSI Scuba Dive Center in Maldives
Rasdhoo: Scuba Dive Hotspot in Maldives
Rasdhoo is a local Island in Maldives, located about 35 miles (65 km) west of Malé Airport. The Island is a Hotspot for Scuba Diving, because it's surrounded by two Channels: Madivaru and Rasdhoo Channel. Here you can spot a lot of big stuff, like sharks, eagle rays, mantas, stingrays and napoleons. Compared to other local islands, Rasdhoo has got a very good infrastructure with many restaurants, supermarkets, hospital, police station and beautiful bikini beach. In 2018 there are more than 20 outstanding guest houses in Rasdhoo, so it shouldn't be a problem for you to find a room. However, we are always happy to assist you in finding exactly what you are looking for.
