Mini adventurers can go on a treasure hunt to discover the island’s fauna and flora, dance enthusiasts can learn the traditional Maldivian Bodu Beru dance, and thrill seekers can try the inflatable banana boat ride.

Emily also leads guests on tours along the house reef where she has planted several coral nursery frames and closely monitors their progress.
Water sport enthusiasts can enjoy kayaking, paddle boarding and snorkelling along the house reef. Those feeling even more adventurous can try fly-boarding. This exhilarating water sport combines a jet ski turbine with a wakeboard, enabling guests to fly above the ocean or dive under like a dolphin.
