Today I bring you to Lily Beach Resort & Spa for a dreamy snorkeling !
In one of my previous post about snorkeling in Maldives, I gave you a tip about choosing your right resort in order to have the best from the Maldives snorkeling reefs. Lily Beach is a part of it among other resorts.
Snorkeling at Huvahendhoo Island, known as Lily Beach Resort & Spa.
Lily Beach Water Villas have direct access to an amazing snorkeling. All of them. If you love snorkeling and want to stay in a water villa, the resort is definitely one of the best choice you will have in Maldives.
It was a very short introduction about this rich subject. So, let’s go further…
One of the best way to make your choice and prepare the right holidays if you are a snorkeling lover or want to discover this great activity, is to observe the aerial photos of the resort you have spotted.
These bird-eye-views on the islands are essential as they will allow you to discover not only the island and its infrastructures, but also, and this is our main focus today, its marine environment.
Located South-East of Ari Atoll, Lily Beach is the ideal example of the “perfect” House-Reef.
The island is located on a very narrow reef with nice slopes and big walls, reachable directly from the beach and the Water-Villas.
The snorkeling is rapidly amazing, ideal for beginners and/or confirmed according to the locations – please visit the Diving Center at you arrival in order to get all the necessary informations and not to miss anything.
Lily Beach is blessed by Nature in matter of Coral reefs
The lagoon of the Atoll is very close and ideally deep and the geographical location of the island itself – close to the Atoll channels- allow to watch a very exciting sea life :
- eagle rays
- reef sharks
- frog fishes
- lion fishes
- parrot fishes
- …without forgetting thousands of multicolor reef fishes … a great delight for the children !
Obviously, I cannot enumerate here all species, as almost everything is possible.
During the Summer Monsoon season (May to November) you might be lucky enough to meet mantas and… whale sharks!
If you like adventure, you should not miss the night snorkel around the island reef, just 10m away from the dive center.
Lily Beach Resort and Spa is a 5***** All Inclusive Resort, the snorkeling gear is free.

Dear Dreaming of Maldives
I am very impressed by this page, actually me and my husband are professional snorkeler, and we had nice time at W retreat & Spa last November, I am writing now from Hilton Irufushi Maldives, we are shocked and got frustrated by the low quality of house reef here. we are thinking of Lily Beach for our break iin April, any advice for us??? Thank you agian for this fabulous blog.
Thank you for your nice comment!
I am surprised that you’ve been advised to chose Iru Fushi for snorkeling. The Resort has indeed a poor reef and walls are located quite far from the island itself. The environment is definitely great for wide sandy lagoon lovers.
Lily Beach is The Resort for snorkeling. The Reefs are A-MA-ZING.
You can read all information about the Resort on our special page “Lily Beach Dreamy Resort of The Month” at http://www.dreamingofmaldives.com/lily-beach-maldives.html for much more details ( villas, restaurants, What to do etc…). If the concept is for you, then you should stay there. No doubt that you will like it.
We wish a beautiful 2012 Year !
