Where to Stay in Gaafu Atoll


August, 2019

Lhaviyani Atoll is known for some of the best beaches in the Maldives and world-class dive sites. Located 80 miles north of the capital Male and the international Airport, Lhaviyani atoll has all the ingredients for tropical paradise, with consistently warm waters that have outstanding visibility. The lagoons are decorated with coral gardens that host an incredible variety of marine life.

The Maldives 1'192 islands are scattered into 26 atolls that form unique rings of tropical islands and lagoons. The 58 islands of Lhaviani Atoll - one of the most northern islands in Maldives. And although the beaches and hotels here are just as idyllic as in the south, most travelers spend time under water. This is because the soldier fish, fusiliers, butterfly fish and fox fish all flicker in the diverse marine life of Lhaviyani Atoll, sharing space with reef sharks, turtles and manta rays slopes.

Only five islands in the atoll of Lhaviani are inhabited, so most of them reflect the true spirit of the island nation. The 8 resorts (end of 2017) are evenly scattered throughout the atoll offering modern accommodation over water and on the beach with luxurious facilities and exceptional service, and also underwater restaurant, spa and water sports. If house reef snorkeling is too tiring for you, Lhaviyani Atoll boasts stunning white sand beaches amid coconut palms. Alternatively, the hotels have many excellent restaurants or bars with some of the finest cusine and mixologists in the Maldives. The 35-minute seaplane journey to Lhaviyani's islands on board the Trans Maldivian Airways adds to the allure of your Maldives holiday and provides astounding views of one of world's most distinct seascapes.
