Maha Faru is located inside the North Male atoll. It is the outer part of a lagoon, starting shallow at 5 meters, the slope then goes down to 30 meters. At the bottom, a sandy area attracts many resting white tip reef sharks and stingrays. This reef is home to lobsters, schools of fusiliers, and curious turtles. Current is usually light to moderate, making this location perfect for all level divers.
