Snorkel in Addu (Maldives). 'When El Niño devastated the marine life of the Maldives and bleached the corals in 1998, the only area of the country to escape was the most southern atoll, Addu. While the coral all over the country is recovering impressively, here the corals are absolutely spectacular, including huge staghorn corals that didn’t survive elsewhere in the Maldives.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/maldives
