Nonnu Atoll – Everything you need to know

Even before you arrive in the Maldives, you are filled with anticipation. The first aircraft journey is an adventure in and of itself! It nearly feels like you’re going straight for the water as you approach the landing strip. When flying over the Maldives, it only takes a single glance out the window to see why this country was virtually designed for scuba diving and those seeking a great dive experience.

The Nonnu Atoll

Noonu atoll is a hotspot for the latest phenomenon, including some of the Maldives’ most luxury resorts. Some of the most costly resorts in the Maldives may be found on Noonu Atoll. These ultra-luxurious residences are preferred by high-net-worth individuals who frequently fly on their own private planes. The new Maafaru international airport is part of a collaborative initiative to transform Noonu atoll into an ultra-luxury resort zone. The airport eliminates the requirement for them to transit at the main Velana International Airport and store their planes there.

In the Maldives, Noonu’s magnificent tropical islands, picturesque white beaches, and colourful coral reefs are known as Southern Miladhunmadulu Atoll or Miladhunmadulu Dhekunuburi. Divers who wish to discover pristine diving spots in the Maldives, such as Edu Faru, Christmas Tree Rock, and Orimas Thila, are also drawn to Noonu Atoll hotels. Noonu Atoll is made up of 13 inhabited islands, with a population of 1400 people in Manadhoo, the capital. Velana (Male) International Airport is right about a 45 minutes by seaplane from Noonu Atoll.
