An educational visit was conducted last Thursday (21st November 2019) by The Marina for a group of students from Muhyiddin School in Villingili. 18 students from the school participated in this visit to the Maldives Discovery Centre and Marine Discovery Centre located at The Marina at CROSSROADS.
This was a fruitful and fun-filled visit for the students, conducted to raise awareness about the Maldives’ culture and environment. During the visit, students had the opportunity to learn about Maldivian arts and crafts, its unique geography, marine life and conservation activities (coral propagation methods) carried out by the centre. Apart from the coral propagation program aimed at saving coral reefs, the Marine Discovery Centre also hosts a laboratory where marine research and longitudinal studies are conducted.
The Marina at CROSSROADS is committed to their vision of upholding values of sustainability regarding the environment, the local culture and local community. In addition to the Marine Discovery Centre, CROSSROADS also houses the Maldives Discovery Centre, which is a unique cultural attraction where visitors can discover the Maldives’ origins and heritage via interactive displays.
The Marina at CROSSROADS has been open to public since September of this year. Located just 15 minutes from Male’, The Marina offers a wide range of activities including world-renowned retail and dining experiences, making it ideal for visitors of all ages.
Tickets to the Marina can be purchased from the ticket counter located at the MTCC Ferry Terminal.
