COMO Cocoa Island is an intimate private Maldives island resort located in the South Malé Atoll (or South Kaafu Atoll). Surrounded by spectacularly clear waters, the land itself is made up of live coral reefs and sand bars, making the natural ecosystem here truly distinctive. Encircled with powder white sand, the carefree, understated luxury experience includes world-class diving, fishing trips, as well as sunset cruises offering a chance to watch dolphins at play.

  • Sunset Fishing: Head out under the spectacular sunset and put your skills to the test with a spot of reef fishing — the way Maldivian fishermen have done for centuries.
  • Sunset Cruise: Travel across the waters of the South Malé Atoll, where dolphins are frequently spotted. As sunset approaches, relax in the fading light while sipping wine or Champagne and dining on a delicious antipasto.
  • Snorkelling Excursions: Enjoy the coral colours while you’re guided underwater, exploring untouched reefs, schools of fish and tropical marine life that are sure to capture your imagination.
  • Catamaran Snorkelling Trip: The two hours spent sailing and snorkeling through the ocean is an ideal choice for couples who want a private experience. The captain will take you out to a quiet snorkelling spot.
  • Reef Propagation: In 1998 and 2016, the El Niño climate cycle resulted in particularly warm seas in the Indian Ocean, which bleached a large number of coral reefs surrounding COMO Cocoa Island. While there is still a plethora of untouched reefs to snorkel and dive in the immediate area, it is important for the local economy that all the islands’ coral flourishes. Our Resident Marine Biologist has teamed up with Seamarc — a marine consultancy company — to plant new coral frames on the seafloor, which encourage new reefs to grow and prosper. Guests at COMO Cocoa Island can sponsor one of these frames, and track its progress via twice yearly photographic updates as well as complimentary guided dives every time they visit the resort. Coral frame sponsorship is priced at US$150 for a single frame, US$300 for a couple frame and US$500 for a family frame.
