Why to visit Hanifaru Bay

Located in the huge UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Baa Atoll, an administrative division of one of the world's most geographically dispersed countries, is paradise. Hanifaru Bay is noted for leaving an indelible impression on visitors, offering some of the Maldives' most popular underwater activities such as scuba diving and snorkelling.

Untouched white sand beaches, awe-inspiring marine life, pure blue lagoons, and who can overlook the masterful blend of navy blue ocean seas with turquoise fringed coves of shallow reefs? Hanifaru Bay is a place known for having some of the most beautiful views in the world.

Some companies also offer night snorkelling excursions, when it's best to see bioluminescent plankton and other nocturnal species that are normally shy during the day. The Indian Ocean's seas are a treasure trove for marine enthusiasts, and the beautiful islands' unspoilt surrounds add to the allure of a perfect holiday.

Special Tip

You can have a ferry ride to the bay but can also treat yourself to an extraordinary experience by travelling in a seaplane to your destination, although this requires prior planning and confirmation its amazing .
