For those seeking Robinson Crusoe-style solitude, private island resort Gili Lankanfushi is as tranquil as they come, and with several renowned aquatic spots on its doorstep, it’s the perfect place for beginners to learn the ropes. In partnership with PADI-certified Ocean Paradise Dive Centre, the resort offers Discover Scuba Diving sessions designed to introduce guests to the wonders under the water. As well as a drill of the basic skills required in the turquoise lagoon that surrounds Gili Lankanfushi’s overwater villas, you’ll be taken on an excursion to Turtle Reef for a boat dive.

For the more experienced divers, the longer PADI Scuba Diver Certification course involves theory tests, quizzes and practical diving sessions, where you’ll work on breathing and buoyancy skills before putting your knowledge to the test at a number of awe-inspiring nearby sites, including Maagiri South, the perfect place to see turtles, moray eels, shrimps and anemones.

Whatever your level of experience, you can opt to take part in the resort’s eco initiatives by joining a science dive to help collect valuable conservation data – all while lapping up the warm waters and enjoying the underwater spectacle.
