Thudufushi reef snorkeling
Thudufushi has a reef that can be easily explored for about 2/3 of the island's circumference and it can be approached with a short swim directly from the beach, through a couple of passes (a pass is a natural or artificial channel dug into the reef, putting in communication the island's lagoon with the open sea). In this page, you may get an idea about the Maldives coralline barrier and the Maldives reef that can be found snorkelling around most islands.
Snorkelling on Thudufushi reef, the first encounter is a nice turtle... just few metres away from the beach!
