Vattaru Kandu – on of the best scuba diving sites in the Maldives. The dive site in Maldives Vattaru Kandu is a protected marine area, located in the channel south of Vattaru Atoll. Vattaru is a small rounded atoll towards the south of Felidhe Atoll, about 45 minutes from Rakeedhoo. The island corner is the premier top dive site for diving in this location. The outside corner declines very sharply to about 45 meters, then steadily slopes to a deep sandy bottom where you will often find big sea fans and leopard sharks. The entrance of the channel is at around 32 meters, around which there are several caves and overhangs, not to mention outside of which, where you will find even more caves, ledges and overhangs. Near this corner, most caves are between 10 and 20 meters.
