Finolhu’s Big Game

12 February, 2022

At Finolhu Baa Atoll Maldives, things to do are limitless. Over the centuries, the people of the Maldives have learned to live in harmony with the ocean, turning to it as their primary source of sustenance, while respecting the natural balance that allows the flora and fauna within it to flourish. Drawing on the local wisdom and traditional values that have been passed down from generation to generation of Maldivian fishermen, Finolhu is now offering guests the opportunity to join its Big Game Fishing excursions for the chance to experience the thrills and wonder of a genuine Maldivian adventure.

Kept to a limit of four guests per trip to ensure a more exclusive experience while adhering to local fishing practices, Finolhu’s Big Game Fishing excursions take you on an exhilarating pursuit of some of the fastest and largest predatory fish in the tropical waters of the Baa Atoll. From the stealthy mahi-mahi (dorado) to giant trevally and lightning-quick tuna, the local game fish each pose different challenges to test your skills and provide opportunities to learn about centuries-old fishing methods from the locals.

Whether you choose to try the hand-line fishing method perfected by the Maldivians or prefer to stick with your own tried-and-tested techniques, a variety of fishing methods and newly-fitted boats are available for this excursion. A local Fishing Master accompanies each trip, to share his knowledge and insights and ensure every excursion is a fun, safe and successful adventure that Finolhu’s Big Game Fishing Excursions last from 3 to 4 hours - ensuring you net a good catch while exerting enough energy to build-up a hearty appetite in anticipation of savouring the fresh-from-the-ocean catch.

Post-adventure, select from a specially prepared menu to have your catch cooked and served up for lunch or dinner the following day at Beach Kitchen - the perfect way to end an exhilarating Big Game Fishing experience - by feasting on your freshly caught fish, from the Indian Ocean to your plate.

Owned and managed by Seaside Collection, a Europe-based hotel group with an exclusive portfolio of high-end resorts and city hotels, Finolhu is a luxury island resort. “Finolhu”, which is a direct translation of “sandbank” in Dhivehi is located in Baa Atoll, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in the Maldives www.finolhu.com

Best Experience:    Couples, Family, Beaches, Activities, Nightlife

Located in the UNESCO world biosphere of Baa Atoll, Finolhu came about as a reaction to the more familiar Maldives island. One of the newest resorts in the Maldives, Finolhu was born out of a desire to bring a fresh wave to the uninhabited island experience. Forget the images of the quiet Maldives paradise: here, fiery dancers, acrobats, world-famous DJs and top-class barmen keep the guests on tiptoe (starting from their bed). The retro atmosphere is the resort's main inspiring force that puts a fun stay at the heart of everything it offers. This cool island playground shakes things up with a fun and fresh spin on Maldivian luxury. The island boasts the longest (1.8 km) sandbank of all the famous Maldivian resort islands - expect to spend a lot of time explorering it. A long beach should not disappoint you either; beach club with retro cinema and old-school arcade; spa with fitness centre and beach gym; tennis courts; watersports; four restaurants; old-school tuck shop. In rooms: TV, iPod dock, DVD player, desk, air-conditioning, minibar, black-out curtain, Neal's Yard Remedies bath products. Read Full Review...
