Quiet and idyllic, Angsana is one of the most natural and beautiful resorts in the Maldives and offers superb shore and boat diving. Managed by the renowned Banyan Tree group, this spa resort is exclusive with a distinct boutique feel and a high standard of service.

Located in the middle of North Male atoll and surrounded by a beautiful turquoise lagoon, Angsana is a tiny circular island with dense and lush vegetation at its centre - it is one of the most photographed islands in the Maldives. Snorkelling and diving from the resort are excellent; turtles, sharks and schools of fish can be seen just metres off the beach on the pristine house reef, which is easily accessible from the shore day or night. Angsana was one of the first eco-friendly resorts in the Maldives; they have a policy aimed at minimising the effects of tourism which includes using biodegradable detergents, solar water heating and effective rubbish disposal schemes.

Angsana offers excellent boat and house reef diving. The house reef, which is easily accessible for both snorkellers and divers, has five entry points from around the island. The reef gradually drops away from the beach to a depth of approximately 30 metres. The reef walls and caves are home to a wealth of marine species, including large schools of trevally, sharks, moray eels and octopus. On the south side of the house reef, there is a small wreck at 25 metres. Angsana’s location allows access to some of the best dive sites on both the south-west and south-east sides of North Male atoll, making it an excellent diving island year round. With more than 40 dive sites within reach, there are great options for all divers, from novice right through to advanced. During the south west monsoon, there is a very active manta point where large numbers of manta rays can be seen as they come in to be cleaned. If you are lucky, you may even spot a whaleshark! As an eco-friendly resort, Angsana runs regular marine biology courses and they have their own, ongoing scientific marine project taking place on the island that monitors and stimulates coral growth. If you are interested to know more, they would be delighted to show you the project and discuss their results.
