The island falls within the measure of small paradises and is entirely surrounded by sand: it is
possible to make the complete tour quickly, without having to cross the island.
The vegetation is not among the most luxuriant I have seen and indeed, in my opinion, it is quite bare.
In the central part of the island you will find a five-a-side football pitch, a beach volleyball court and a saltwater waterfall, built around a plant. Each villa has two sun loungers, an umbrella and, on request, a plastic sun-bed to relax by the water.
The only umbrellas that are not numbered are those arranged in front of the restaurant area (also made available to the overwater, which otherwise would not have any position on the beach).
The towels will be delivered to you directly on the beach, where you can leave them in the evening before leaving. The anti-erosion walls are visible on the horizon and allow a perfect lagoon effect: the almost motionless sea in the period in which we stayed, looks more like a salt water pool than the Indian Ocean.
The reef is the most spectacular feature of this
island: accessible from two entrances, it gives its maximum splendor to the left of the main pier. A
variety of fish that makes every snorkeling trip a small dive: octopuses, black tip sharks, turtles,
moray eels, sea eagles, stingrays, lobsters, clownfish and hundreds of other small creatures.
Each day was a new surprise, a great adventure to dive into this aquarium.
The South Ari Atoll is famous for the sighting of the whale shark, that we unfortunately were not
able to meet even on excursion. The island is kept by the Vakarufalhi staff like a botanical garden:
the attention in cleaning the beaches and internal paths is something obsessive during the day.
Every morning, every corner of the island is cleaned of corals and leaves.
