Sirru Fen Fushi, the Fairmont Maldives private island retreat located in the pristine Shaviyani Atoll, is inviting visitors of all ages to embrace their inner mermaid with the recently introduced Generation Sea program. With this initiative, kids may set out on a marine exploration adventure, learning to swim like a mermaid and taking part in numerous conservation activities as they unearth the mysteries of the Maldives' vast biodiversity.

This program is the latest cutting-edge initiative to be held on the property and is renowned for its dedication to marine conservation. It includes the Coralarium, a groundbreaking coral regeneration project that takes the form of an underwater gallery, and the Sustainability Lab, where plastic waste is converted into wonder. The Secret Water Island hopes that by undertaking this empowering project, it will motivate the next generation of environmentally concerned tourists and provide priceless information about underwater habitat preservation.

As part of this program, eco-warriors will participate in a number of activities, including as a trip to the Sustainability Lab, where garbage is repurposed into custom mementos using sophisticated machinery. Children who visit can participate in the special Generation Sea bracelet-making project using ghost nets that have been taken from the ocean and pose a serious threat to sea turtles. After that, they can participate in interesting workshops that emphasize the best ways to protect the marine resources of the area for many years to come.

The marine biologist will next take eager explorers on an exhilarating tour of the Coralarium, which is frequently frequented by tropical schools of fish and manta rays. The resort's bustling 9-kilometre house reef can be explored in fascinating detail by avid explorers who sign up for the excursion. Take advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime chance to glide by colourful coral gardens, friendly turtles, and washing stations while maintaining your mermaid tail.

Back on dry land, the Kids' Club is ready to present a variety of amazing activities for young visitors to enjoy. The on-site art studio is the perfect place for creative guests to find inspiration and their vocation. There, they can spend the necessary time creating works of art inspired by the sea, including shell jewellery. Families can choose to relax and disconnect in Beach Tented Villas located on the island's unspoiled white coastlines after days spent exploring.

These villas are the ideal castaway alternative for a mindful vacation because they are surrounded by lush tropical jungle and crystal-clear waterways. The villas are a step up from the usual beach and overwater villa options and are generously constructed to comfortably fit a family of four. To top it all off, visitors to these villas may take advantage of a private beach BBQ and a pop-up movie theatre with fresh popcorn after sundown, setting the stage for an unforgettable evening under the stars.
