Baa Atoll / Maldives

Baa Atoll
     Baa Atoll (South Maalhosmadulu) is separated from North Malé atoll by a deep and wide channel. It takes 5-6 hours to cross the channel on the safari yacht. The atoll’s size is 42×32km/26×19mi. There are 10 inhabited and 41 uninhabited islands, 6 of which are resorts.
      Wide channels, large reefs at the east and north parts, numerous 7-10m/22-33ft deep thilas and a popular reserve Hanifaru Bay attract divers to this atoll.
The most popular dive sites are Bathalaa – the north corner of atoll, where drift dive is usually used; Miriandhoo – a small, although deep thila for experienced divers; Dharavandhoo – a thila at the eastern part of atoll that is connected with the island by a narrow isthmus and is remarkable for its caves, overhanging corals, narrow passages and breaks; Hanifaru Bay – a small bay at the south-east of atoll where snorkeling is used by divers in August-September in order to explore a great variety of marine dwellers.
