One of the most beautiful diving sites in the Maldives, the HP Reef, located at the North Male Atoll, is also referred to as the 'Girifushi Thila' and the 'Rainbow Reef', the latter owing to the plethora of brightly coloured corals that adorn the seabed. The resplendent reef is full of astonishing formations, which include crevices, splendid caves, huge blocks, and a whopping vertical swim-through chimney which reaches up to a height of 25 metres.
A large portion of the HP Reef is laden with bright blue, orange, and yellow corals, including gorgonians, sea fans, and sea whips, while hundreds of small fish, eagle rays, barracudas, grey reef sharks, and dog-toothed tunas throng the place on a frequent basis. The HP Reef is a year-round site for diving. With dives that reach up to the depths of 40 metres, this reef is an ideal spot for those who seek to uncover the fascinating mysteries of the world underwater. At present, this is a Protected Marine Area in the island nation of the Maldives.
