North Ari Atoll : Holiday Accommodation
Just 30 minutes west by seaplane from Malé, North Ari Atoll is one of the largest 'atolls' or clusters of islands in the Maldives.
Like everywhere else in this stunning Indian Ocean archipelago, it's composed of a group of idyllic coral islands, all encircled by white sands and calm, iridescent turquoise waters. Many islands host all-inclusive hotels offering restaurants, sports and entertainments, so once you're here, there's little need to leave. During the day, lounge on the sands to the gentle rustle of palms, don your snorkel or wetsuit to witness astonishing, fish-flecked coral reefs, enjoy night fishing, island-hopping and dolphin-watching trips or visit Malé to experience its waterfront markets and Grand Mosque. And at night, do what everyone does - sip sundowners on the sands before feasting on succulent seafood overlooking the serene, sunset-washed ocean.
