Paradise Island (Lankanfinolhu) (Kaafu)

Paradise Island (Lankanfinolhu) (Kaafu)



Located NE from N Mal; It measures 800 meters long and 200 m wide.
Reef within 250 m, two entries.

The lagoon is large and very shallow in places, not coral, you can swim without any problem but the snorkeling was disappointing, so the snorkeling excursion are held regularly throughout the day.

We do not recommend Paradise Island for those who want a small island charm. This one looks more like a largeresort hotel that will delight sports and active holiday ... 
Située au NE de Malé N, elle mesure 800 m de long sur 200 m de large.
Récif intérieur à 250 m; deux entrées.

Le lagon est vaste et par endroit très peu profond, sans corail, on peut y nager sans problème mais l'apnée est décevant, c'est pourquoi des excursion en apnée sont régulièrement organisées tout au long de la journée.

Nous déconseillons Paradise Island à ceux qui souhaitent une petite île de charme. Celle-là à plus l'air d'un grand hôtel-club qui ravira les vacanciers actifs et sportifs...
