The Baa Atoll is made up of 50 islands and is south of the Raa Atoll, and north of the Male Atoll. It is around 130 Km northwest of the airport, and is home to around 5 resorts, which were uninhabited but have now been converted to quality hotels.
The Baa atoll is normally reached from the airport by seaplanes and speedboats. Itís a long way on a speedboat so a seaplane flight is the recommended way.
The resort islands are still completely unspoiled and here you will find some of the best snorkelling, diving and surfing spots in the Maldives
There is no doubt the principal attractions are the unspoilt natural beauty of the Baa Atoll, the untouched beaches, and the pristine condition reefs.
There are only 13 inhabited islands from the total of 50 islands.
It was as recently as 1998 that the first tourist resort on Baa Atoll opened, followed by four more Maldives luxury hotels, and these resorts have increased employment on the Baa Atoll. The other islands remain as they were, totally unexploited with white sandy beaches, whose only real visitors are tourists on hotel excursions.
