Baa Atoll Maldives

One of the largest groups of coral reefs in the Indian Ocean, the Baa Atoll is formed from some 100 coral reefs, teeny islands and sandy cays that, from the air, look like a pair of pearl necklaces.  One of 26 natural atolls in the Indian Ocean and now a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, its protected waters harbour an extraordinary diversity of marine life, including some 250 species of stony and soft coral, over 1,000 types of reef fish, as well as the endangered Hawksbill and Green turtles, manta rays and whale sharks.  Amilla Beach Villa Residence guests may gain riveting insights on this magical underwater world, courtesy the island’s resident marine biologist who runs conservation and educational programmes and sometimes accompanies dive and snorkelling excursions.

Getting to the Maldives

Over 30 international airlines operate daily flights into Male international Airport (which occupies its own island and is considered one of the safest airports in the world). Arriving at Male for the first time can be magical, with the vista of myriad lagoon-rimmed islands revealed during the plane’s descent. And we’ll be there to meet you on landing, to help you on the last wonderful leg of your journey to Amilla Fushi.
