Calling all ocean lovers! Gili Lankanfushi, the pioneer of sustainable, barefoot luxury in the Maldives, has announced a series of sensational activities in celebration of World Oceans Week and World Environment Day 2022.

Taking place from 1st to 8th June 2022, aquatic adventures on offer range from treasure hunts and themed Jungle Cinema screenings – suitable for big and little fish alike! – to a series of guided snorkels, educational presentations, and talks.

Guests will even have the opportunity to participate in Gili’s famed Coral Lines conservation project, which encourages guests to learn about coral reef restoration and rehabilitation, to visit the nursing coral on ropes and to even adopt a coral.

Ocean Life ‘Treasure Hunts’, during which guests can win edible prizes and ‘Fish ID’ certificates by spotting 10-20 different species of fish, rays, sharks, and turtles, will run all week long.

Sustainability has been at the heart of Gili Lankanfushi’s vision since the resort’s conception, with the preservation of the natural environment and marine ecosystem of utmost importance.

The entire resort has been constructed with sustainably sourced and recycled materials, and all rooms provide organic toiletries in refillable earthenware containers, keeping plastic use and wastage to an absolute minimum. A dedicated desalinisation plant turns seawater into still and sparkling drinking water for guests and much of the restaurants’ fruit, vegetables and herbs are grown in the resort’s organic garden, which is composted with recycled food waste.

The island’s dedicated marine biology team constantly monitor and protect the health and biodiversity of surrounding coral reef ecosystems, educating guests and regularly hosting visiting scientists and academics.
