The annually celebrated World Oceans Day comes along every 8th June with numerous events and activities to be held around the world, bringing people together to celebrate and honour the ocean.
To support this global environmental initiative, Kurumba Maldives hosted a number of activities for guests and team members to participate. Complimentary Snorkeling Safari and Lagoon Cleaning in conjunction with Clean-up dive activities were taken place with the participation of those who wished to take part in the lagoon and house reef clean-up activities. Inspired by the theme of this year’s event ‘preventing plastic pollution and encouraging solutions for a healthy ocean’, the clean-up activity aimed to raise awareness about the danger of plastics to marine life.
Children were also encouraged to engage in this event and show their appreciation to the ocean in a fun Art Competition organized at the Kids Club.
The celebration day marked by a Marine Life Presentation which helps ocean lovers to learn more about the inhabitants of the ocean- home to a diverse range of marine life.

About Kurumba Maldives
Kurumba was the very first private island resort in the Maldives when it opened its doors in 1972 in the Indian Ocean archipelago of the Maldives, celebrates its 45th Anniversary this year.
Opened by four young Maldivians on an uninhabited coconut plantation island in October 1972, Kurumba marked the beginning of the tourist industry in the country. At that time, the Maldives was isolated with no contact with the outside world except by ham radio, no telephones, mains electricity or water, few vehicles and no paved roads, and only a small airstrip built by volunteers.
Kurumba began with 30 huts built of coral and thatched with coconut leaves; the first guests were barefoot backpackers in search of sand, sea and sun. The Maldivian hosts prepared meals informally. Today the resort is still Maldivian owned and managed. About 1,000 tourists visited the island in 1972; in 2016 1.4 million
tourists stayed in over 117 resorts through the Maldives.
Kurumba Maldives is set on a tropical island in the North Male’ Atoll, conveniently situated a brief 10-minute speedboat ride from the airport.
