If your ideal Maldives escape comes with the following caveats: quiet and secluded grown-up paradise, sustainable but luxurious, great wellness and spa facilities, an excellent house reef for snorkelling, and uncrowded dive sites, you might think it’s too much to ask but at Kagi Maldives Spa Island you can have everything on your wish list and more!

Located on the secluded tip of North Male Atoll, Kagi is an undiscovered divers’ paradise and home to a Euro-Divers PADI 5* Dive Centre offering the full range of PADI courses and scuba diving activities for divers of all experience levels. Due to its out-of-the-way location, divers at Kagi often enjoy having the dive sites to themselves with just our expert guides, their buddy and their bubbles for company – this gives a private charter-like experience without specifically booking one!

The Maldives is renowned for spectacular diving and at Kagi that’s exactly what you get. Beautiful shallow reefs, steep wall drop-offs, the deeper underwater islands called thilas and channels where the currents flow fast – divers get a huge variety of reefs with no two the same. Marine life is in abundance with all the big bucket list creatures waiting to be seen including sharks, eagle rays, turtles and huge schools of colourful reef fish. Mantas frequent the cleaning stations, colourful soft coral hangs from the ceilings of overhangs. The star of the show amongst our dive sites is Helengeli Thila where, in the right conditions, hundreds of grey reef sharks can be seen. To get the most out of this sometimes-challenging site, it is recommended that divers complete their Nitrox certification course if they are not already an Enriched Air Diver.

Just steps away from the beach is Kagi’s incredible house reef, offering convenience for both snorkelers and divers who want to experience the reef on their own schedule. See if you can spot sleeping rays and nurse sharks.

A couple on SUP boards in Maldives

For a totally different perspective, our watersports centre has glass-bottomed kayaks which can be taken to the house reef and lagoon. If the indulgences of the delicious food and tempting cocktails are too much to resist, achieve some balance by taking out the SUP Mirage where you can pedal and give your core strength a workout at the same time!

We look forward to showing you the marine delights of Kagi soon; villas can be booked directly with the resort at Kagi Maldives Spa Island.
