Haa Alifu Atoll : Holiday Accommodation
The furthest north atoll in the Maldives, Haa Alifu Atoll is made up of 42 individual islands, 14 of which are inhabited. The area is a late starter in terms of tourism development, there are only 3 resort islands in the atoll, the first of which opened in 2005. The area was a key staging post for the British in WWII and is a well-known stopover for keen sailors who travel around the Indian Ocean. A key historic sight on the atoll is the mosque on Kelaa island, built in the late 1700s.
