Somewhere to sit at 6am.
Get out of bed early doors.
Step out of the chalet onto the beach.
Find somewhere to sit.
Watch the sun rise up from the horizon over the blue to green to turquoise lagoon.
Feel alive! Wonderful!!
Address: The East side of the island
At the end of the day
Sunsets are a particular attraction of Kadmat not least because you only need to walk a few metres from your chalet to be on the west side of the island.
The jetty is on the west side and there was nothing better after a days diving, snorkelling, sunbathing (and sand fly bite scratching) than to sit on the edge of the jetty watching and taking photographs of the sunset.
Different every night they are always worth watching, letting your mind drift and feeling especially privilaged to be in this beautiful part of the world.
Address: The West side of the island
Directions: Head for the jetty.
The wee dive boat
Diving is wonderful in the coral reefs surrounding Kadmat and most dive sites are relatively near the shore (which is great if, like me you suffer from sea sickness!)
There are a number of sites of differing depths. The four sites I visited were:
Jackpoint: I went to 18 metres to see napoleans, gobis, lobster, trigger fish and morays. Caught one moray having a clean out!
Cross Currents - you guessed it, a drift dive down to 21 metres where I saw my first white tip reef shark along with turtles, butterfly fish amongst shoals of copius smaller fish.
Junior Shark Alley - 20 metres down to see more white tip reef sharks, pufferfish, turtle and my first ever manta ray! Beautiful!!
The Cave - Yep an underwater cave to poke around in where I saw turtles, morays and lots more. This site has an extensive coral garden at 18 metres which is just stunning. An unforgettable dive.
And all with fabulous visability and the warmest water!
The dive boat is small and requires the back roll entry which is always good fun. The dive centre Laccadives are fantastic with wonderful friendly competant staff and the best instructor I've met yet - Subin (who is also a fantastic photographer).
What better than to dive such pristine, quiet beautiful reefs teeming with life with a surface interval eating fresh coconut and drinking warm tea!
Address: Coral reefs around the island
Directions: Head for the blue!
