Imbued with an air of stylish sophistication, Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa enjoys the charm of an idyllic Maldivian village setting circled by crystal waters. Find the perfect wave with the Tropicsurf surf school, luxuriate in natural treatments in a spa on its own island, then contemplate another paradisiacal day in the vibrant Sunset Lounge.
Take a walk along the western side of the island during the few hours before sunset and spot baby black tip reef sharks in the shallows. For a chance to see an adult black tip, take the shark safari and enjoy an exciting snorkelling excursion off Baros Reef where you snorkel along the drop off, home to colourful tropical fish, turtles and of course, black tip reef sharks. For the best experience, stick close to the marine biologist accompanying you as they are used to spotting things living within the reef and will point out things others would miss!
