Everything You Need to Know about Thaa Atoll


August, 2019

Well regarded for its diving and surf breaks, the unspoilt Thaa Atoll (Kolhumadulu Atoll) is home to COMO Maalifushi is the first and only resort in the archipelago’s southern atoll.

Its culturally appropriate architecture includes low-lying garden and overwater villas, with views of white beach, tropical greenery and cobalt lagoon. Guests can also enjoy yoga and holistic Asian therapies at the COMO Shambhala Retreat, with the entire guest experience defined by COMO’s exacting, passionate service.

Tha Atoll consists of 66 islands of which 13 are inhabited. The capital of the atoll is Veymandoo island. The Thaa Atoll, 52 km from east to west and 44 km from south to north is located between the atolls of Dhaalu and Laamu. Most of the islands of Thaa Atoll have not been touched by man yet preserving the unspoilt surrounding nature and marine life of coral reefs. The atoll is also home to the longest island in the Maldives - Fahala Island is located on the eastern edge of Thaa and is blessed with beautiful white beaches.

The abundance of marine life and clear visibility makes Thaa Atoll one of the greatest underwater regions on the planet. While around 25 sites in the Thaa Atoll are already chronicled, there are numerous unexplored channels and reefs, with the waters offering something for divers of all abilities.

If you’re planning on making Thaa Atoll part of your next surfing vacation, keep in mind that the only way to access these breaks is via boat. With two guest houses, Thimarafushi island is a great surfer island to head.

Despite the abundance of inhabited islands, budget tourism is almost undeveloped in Kolhumadulu, however you will find cheap guest houses on atoll's southern islands.

Due to the isolated nature of the Maldives, almost all travellers arrive by air. From Malé airport, guests will take a 60-minute seaplane transfer to the resort.
