At Kudadoo Maldives Private Island, moments of magnificence in many ways revolve around the ocean: be it admiring its surreal blues from the comfort of your bed or from a bath tub at the spa, riding its waves with a jet ski, or even dining under it at the adjacent 5.8 Undersea Restaurant at Hurawalhi, there is no joy quite like the one the vast expanses of the Indian Ocean provide. Aligned with Kudadoo’s values of sustainability and experiential travel, eco-friendly and memorable encounters can be had around the island, and among them seeing turtles in their natural habitat is for many residents the absolute winner.

Turtles, predominantly green sea turtles and hawksbill turtles, are prolific in Lhaviyani Atoll, and can be seen at various location, all within a convenient distance from Kudadoo. Have your private butler arrange a snorkelling trip or add a dive at the ‘Turtle Airport’ to your itinerary, or perhaps you’d even prefer to spend an entire day on a luxury wooden yacht and make stops on various coral reefs along the way to dive, snorkel or freedive with turtles – at Kudadoo, some of the world’s most magical marine life awaits.
