An administrative division in the west of the Maldives, Baa Atoll consists of three natural atolls made up of of 75 islands, 57 of which are are uninhabited. Baa Atoll is the only UNESCO listed Biosphere Reserve in the Maldives, known for its high biodiversity and home to Hanifaru Bay, the largest gathering of manta rays on earth and one of the only whale shark mating sites in the world.
Boasting some of the best diving and snorkelling spots in the world, many of the islands are home to luxury resorts providing wonderful spa’s, restaurants and clubs.
Surrounded by nothing but turquoise lagoon which melts into sapphire blue, the island of Kihavah and its pure white sands rise up out of the ocean like a mirage. For centuries, Arab traders en route to the Far East took shelter on the island, a lush paradise blessed by coconut, papaya and mango trees. Navigating archipelago to archipelago by the stars, the seafarers were also drawn by the riches of the ocean surrounding the island – where a prehistoric volcano sank back into the depths, leaving blooming corals and a wealth of lagoon fish.
