Surfing

The Maldives is the leading tourist destination and Thulusdhoo Island is one of the best surfing sights, located close to Male with a some excellent surf spots: Chicken and Cokes. The big wave, stable quality of riding and beautiful environment generate high excitement among surfers who are looking for unforgettable surfing adventures in Maldives.

Snorkeling

Let's go for a walk with the fishes! Snorkeling in the Maldives is an unforgettable experience with marine life is one of the best in the world. The abundance and diversity of the underwater world is a source of attraction not only for diving fans, but also for those who are keen on snorkeling. About 70 different types of colorful corals form reefs around Thulusdhoo which are home to over 700 species of fish and other marine creatures.

To fully enjoy snorkeling, you should carefully choose snorkel spots. Reefs are the best places to drift. On Thulusdhoo the best place for snorkeling is Thingiri Point house reef. On the edge of the reef, you can find interesting features like crevices, terraces, caves, and of course currents (do not forget to use fins). As the waters become deeper, the differences in coral and other marine life are clearly distinguishable. Snorkeling becomes more risky when small fish disappear, and their place is taken by much larger marine animals coming here to hunt.

Rays and peaceful whale sharks eat plankton while numerous schools of reef fish of various shapes and colors play among the bright corals. Larger coral reef fish are usually friendly and curious. Snorkeling offers many opportunities: from deep hollows, where groupers and riders live, to sunny shallows with more miniature and more colorful species.

Usually guest houses on Thulusdhoo island provide their guests with snorkeling gear, but sometimes the quality of the mask and the tube leaves much to be desired.

Activities

For such a small island, Thulusdhoo has a surprising amount of recreational and Industrial activity to see and enjoy. Many hotels offer tours aim to show just how the local Maldivian lives, the best, and the more difficult aspects of life in these isolated atolls. Check out the industry including fish drying factories, boat building yards, sea cucumber processing, the Maldives sole Coca-Cola factory and the agricultural section. You can visit the school, the power house, and learn of the islands history.

Maldives are a very active nation, and sports events take place on the island regularly. Football, volleyball and netball are the most popular sports.

Local Maldivian games are also very popular activities on the island. Watch the traditional Bashi game in which only women participate. Bai bala is a full-contact sport for men, involving direct contact when a player of one of the teams tries to break into a circle, touch the opponent and then jump out of the circle before he is caught and possibly injured by his opponents. Participation of tourists in evening sports competitions, as a rule, is welcomed and gives chance to have fun with locals.

On Thulusdhoo Island you have the unique oportunity to see dolphins just in front of the beach. Keep your eyes open while relaxing at the dining area to catch a glimpse of these friendly creatures. If you want you can go on a boat tour to see the dolphins even closer and experience the sounds of the highly intelligent mammals that seem to smile at you while jumping out of the water.

Mingle and chat or play games with the locals, see what's on at the islands sporting grounds, ride bikes, go for a jog or simply relax in the shade. A fire on the beach cooking some fresh fish while enjoying the rising of the moon is a recommended way to spend the evening.
