Baarah Caves

Welcome to Baarah Island, a stunning dive site located on the south side of Haa Alif, Maldives. This dive spot offers an incredible underwater experience for divers of all levels, from beginners to advanced.

As you descend into the crystal-clear waters, you'll be greeted by a deep sheer wall that reaches depths of 25-30 meters. This impressive wall starts from the top reef, which lies at approximately 7 meters. Along the wall and inside the small overhangs and openings, you'll discover an abundance of exciting features such as deep caverns, ledges, and small caves.

Be prepared to encounter a variety of marine life during your dive. Keep your eyes peeled for white tip and nurse sharks, as they can often be spotted resting in the small caves and along the wall at around 16 meters. Rays gracefully glide through the waters, while lobsters scuttle along, adding to the spectacle. The deep caverns also offer a haven for macro life, with countless species waiting to be discovered.

Venturing further, you'll uncover a thriving underwater community. Stingrays, white tip sharks, and lobsters continue to make appearances in the small caves, providing an exhilarating sight. Above the reef, you'll witness schools of fusiliers and snappers, creating a beautiful ballet of fish. Dogtooth tunas, barracudas, eagle rays, and turtles gracefully glide through the blue depths, completing the enchanting scene.

With a visibility of 19 meters and a maximum depth of 20 meters, Baarah Island provides an optimal environment for exploration. Whether you're a novice diver or an experienced pro, this captivating dive site offers an array of underwater treasures.

Discover the wonders of Baarah Island and embark on an unforgettable diving adventure in the Maldives.
