Free Diving Champion Beth Neale to Host Workshops at LUX* South Ari Atoll and Promote Maldives

As the circus-themed Festive Season is in full swing at LUX* South Ari Atoll Resort & Villas, the resort has invited 4 x South African free diving champion Beth Neale to conduct workshops for kids and adults.

The objective of the workshops, apart from having fun, is to boost the water confidence of the many children visiting the island during the holiday season, as well as for adults to explore their abilities even further during two half-day sessions.


In addition to the workshops, Beth Neale has partnered up with the resort and Maldives Marketing & PR Corporation (MMPRC) to promote the Maldives as an eco-friendly destination, a world class freediving destination and a top destination to dive with sharks.

Formally known as ‘One Breath Beth’, Beth’s latest and fourth record was set in the Constant Weight No Fins discipline, which means she dives with no equipment except for a nose clip, and use breast-strokes down and back up. This was the deepest female dive in the continent of Africa, as well as the deepest official free dive in Bermuda. Her primary motivation for this historical dive was to raise funds and awareness for her conservation work in Bermuda for the last five years.
