The dominant vegetation on the islands is coconut palm forest associated with shrubland on the edge of the beach. On Magoodhoo Island, 10 out of the 22 hectares are covered by coconut forest (Cocus nucifera) and shrubland is composed of sea lettuce (Scaevola taccada), tree hiliotrope (Tournefortia argenta), beach gardenia (Guettarda speciosa) and screw pine (Pandanus sp.). As to the Maldivian fauna, it is possible to spot flying foxes (Pteropus giganteus) and asian koels (Eudynamys scolopaceus) perched on tree branches, as well as white-breasted waterhed (Amaurornis phoenicurus) running on the ground among the roots of the palm trees.
All around Magoodhoo Island, lagoons and coral reefs welcome the guests of the #MaRHECenter with the incredible biodiversity that characterizes this part of the Indian Ocean. Just a few meters from the Center, the lagoon and inner reefs are easily accessible from the beach for snorkeling and diving exploration. In this environment, it is possible to appreciate the presence of healthy colourful corals, as well as an incredible number of species of marine vertebrates and invertebrates.
