Hanifaru Bay is a marine protected, uninhabited area that is located in the core area of the Biosphere Reserve in Baa Atoll, which has long been famous for being one of the best spots for underwater photographers and diving enthusiasts.
Especially during the west monsoon season from May until November, large concentration of plankton gets trapped in the funnel like lagoon, as it washes over the corals and just sits on the surface. When that happens, it attracts large groups of manta rays and whale sharks.
Over the years, Hanifaru Bay has become one of the world’s largest manta ray feeding destinations.
