The Maldives: Male to Baa Atoll

14 days Luxury Yacht Charter Experience

Discover a luxury paradise both above and beneath the waves in the Maldives

Lying off the southern tip of India, the slender island chain of the Maldives is strewn across the azure waters of the Indian Ocean. Its thousands of islands are surrounded by infinite shades of blue water, which is home to dazzling underwater coral gardens - perfect for snorkelling and scuba diving


Step aboard in the Port of Male located on North Male Atoll.

The North Malé  Atoll is home to many of the Maldives’s most famous and best-established resorts, and all the islands are within easy reach of the capital city.

The area is characterised by some of the best reefs in the Maldives, caves, current-swept channels and drop offs. The marine life is diverse and the many crevices are home to reef sharks and mantas, tuna, rays, turtles and a variety of different colourful fish.

Some of the Maldives’ best surf breaks are in North Male Atoll, and here you’ll find a small, seasonal surfer scene.

A jewel among a string of coral atolls, lagoons and white sands, the One&Only Reethi Rah Resort makes its home on one of the largest islands in North Male Atoll.

Set within its very own lagoon, Huvafen Fushi Resort is also very popular, it’s a naturalist’s wonderland where the stunning environment above and below the waterline is simply fascinating and the star attraction here is the world’s first underwater Spa.

DAY 2 TO 3

Baa Atoll has the reputation of being one of the most beautiful and unspoiled parts of the Maldives island chain. The lush vegetation and white powder-sand beaches lapped by turquoise-blue waters make Baa Atoll an excellent choice for an idyllic tropical holiday.

Baa also encompasses many of the best snorkelling and diving sites in the Maldives. The coral reefs here are dazzling with the living colours of an uncountable number of fish species, and those who prefer to keep their feet dry can see it all from a glass-bottomed tour boat.

Some of the islands have been developed as tourist resorts, with one resort on each

island. Among them, Soneva Fushi Resort & Spa is set on the privately owned, uninhabited, tropical paradise island of Kunfunadhoo. At 1,400m long and 400m wide, this island is one of the largest in the Maldives ensuring seclusion and privacy.

Another amazing resort is the Four Seasons Resort at Landaa Giraavaru. Surrounded by a white sand beach and a wide coral reef, its waters are quiet and shallow, and shelter an important biodiversity.
