Description

Mulaku Kandu has the unusual feature of a large submerged pinnacle rising from very deep water in the centre of the channel. The pinnacle is covered with beautiful soft corals and surrounded by a myriad of marine life. The channels on the western rim of the atoll will also make fantastic dive sites. As they are exposed, the best diving in these would be during the southwest monsoon. The atoll has traditionally been, and still is a popular port of call for vessels plying between the southern atolls and the capital. Boats stopover for the night often at the capital island Muli. The main occupation in the atoll is fishing.

Mulaku Kandu présente l'aspect inhabituel d'un vaste pic submergé s'élevant des profondeurs de l'eau au centre du chenal. Le pic est recouvert de magnifiques coraux et entouré d'une myriade d'êtres aquatiques.
Par tradition, les navires venus du S et se rendant à Male font escale dans cet atoll, en particulier à la capitale, Muli.
L'activité essentielle est la pêche, surtout sur l'île de Dhiggaru.

The reefs of the eastern side of the atoll are in pristine condition and are wonderful for divers and snorkellers alike. There are many thrilling shark dives in the atoll, where divers may be lucky enough to see hammerhead sharks as well as the more common grey reef sharks.
