Raa

One of the most pristine resorts in the Maldives, with just a few resorts dotting this 35 mile long atoll. Raa’s relatively untouched feel is a result of the ban on tourism in the atoll, which was repealed in 1990, resorts therefore have not had much time to develop and overpopulate the idyllic islands. Raa Atoll is extremely popular with divers because of its plethora of marine life and proximity to the infamous Hanifaru Bay.

The capital island is Ugoofaaru, which is famed for its large fishing fleet and neighbours Alifushi, renowned for its Dhoni craftsmanship. The channel between Baa and Raa Atoll is named after Roger Moresby, a captain of the East India Company who painstakingly mapped all the atolls of the Maldives in the early nineteenth century.

Opened in May 2015, Ifuru Domestic Airport in Raa Atoll is the most recent addition to the Maldives aviation scene. Maldivian airline transfers visitors from Malé International to Raa Atoll on a daily basis.
