Vilamendhoo’s famous underwater garden – the house reef

The house reef of Vilamendhoo Resort is exceptionally beautiful and starts just a few feet away from the beach. The house reefs dense corral garden circles the island and extend over the narrow lagoon around the overwater villas on the western end.

Guests of all ages can stand from the beach or the jetty to experience abundant marine life. To admire the house reef in its full glory, one must snorkel in and get engulfed by shoals of colourful fish while you swim amidst the corrals. 

Do not be surprised if you come across turtles and baby sharks (harmless) while you snorkel.
