North Ari Atoll: what to do?

Once you get to your island, it might seem that there is not a lot to do, though there are several different activities such as diving, snorkeling, water sports and land sports. Feel free to enjoy a massage in the spa, which is very professionally done. You can also go fishing in the daytime and at night. As well as this, the hotel will serve you a barbecue on a desert island and you can visit a local island and another island hotel.

You can certainly visit another island-hotel than your own, or even a desert island and an island village. If you have time to go back to Male before taking your return plane, do not hesitate to go! The atmosphere is special, and it is interesting to explore the Maldivian architecture. You can also have a look at the Friday Mosque, the Presidential Palace, the Islamic Centre, Park Sultan and the National Museum. Also not to be missed, is the fish and the local markets which have an atmosphere of their own.

  • Far from the capital city of Male
