The simplistic tropical exuberance of the Maldives has made it a legendary Island destination for travellers from all over the world. The beauty of the various landmasses that make up the Maldives is unmistakable, consisting of profoundly pristine beaches, sparkling turquoise waters, and clusters of lush rainforest to top it all off. The average Maldives luxury resort is also breath-taking, and most likely commanding an entire island, with examples such as COMO Maalifushi, The Maldives.
One of the most prominent Atolls is Haa Alifu, which is the northernmost administrative district of the Maldives. It consists of forty two separate islands, containing various resorts the nation is famous for. The northernmost most natural island of the entire archipelago, Ihavandhippolhu is part of this district, and would be a great place to visit on an island hopping excursion. Of the landmasses that make up Haa Alifu, fourteen are uninhabited, making them great places to do some exploring
The Lhaviyani Atoll was established due to land becoming scarce in Male, the island that serves as the capital of the nation. The atoll once held an entire kingdom that was separated from the rest of the island nation. Following a failed invasion of Male, the ruler of this separatist kingdom fled to a distant section of the Maldives islands.
The Gaafu Alifu atoll is a very striking formation which consists of a large ring of fairly prominent landmasses concealing a massive lagoon featuring multiple islands within it. Some of the most beautiful island formations and coral reefs are found within this formation since it contains almost a hundred landmasses.
Of the twenty atolls that make up the Maldives, there’s an immense bounty of islands and bodies of water for you to explore, with each of them containing a unique sense of beauty and astonishing features. Be sure to check out which atolls are most suitable for you before heading out on a Maldives adventure.
