RAA Atoll – Everything You Need To Know

The Maldives is well-known for its pristine white sandy beaches, thriving reef fish, beautiful lagoons, palm-fringed islands, and luxurious water villas. The blue waves crashing against the coast, as well as a stunning school of manta rays, reef sharks, and corals dotting the archipelago’s underwater realm, highlight the archipelago’s unspoiled beauty.

The RAA Atoll

Raa atoll, also known as North Maalhosmadulu, is among the Maldives’ most northern and most visited atolls, separated from Baa atoll by Hani Kandu, a 5 km wide canal. Raa atoll is nearly 70 km long and 30 km broad, with 88 islands, 15 of which are inhabited. Some of the luxury hotels on Raa atoll include Emerald, Kudafushi, and the ultra-luxurious Joali Maldives. Raa atoll can be reached by a 45-minute seaplane trip from Male, a 45-minute flight from Male to Ifuru Airport, or a 35-minute flight from Male to Dhravandhoo Airport followed by a speedboat ride.

The atoll’s outer ridge is deep, while the inner islands sit on shallower plateaus, creating circumstances that are ideal for the growth of corals and fish. The unique topographical and geological aspects of Raa Atoll make it rich and diversified in marine life. 

Snorkeling, diving, watersports, and excursions are popular activities for guests. Trips to the adjacent inhabited island of Meedhoo, dolphin excursions, and fishing expeditions are among the latter. Expect a lot of drift dives at most Raa atoll diving sites, a diverse marine life, and some of the nicest beaches in the Maldives. Raa atoll’s beautiful collection of deserted and undiscovered islands provides tourists with incredible possibilities for a unique beach experience in the Maldives.

The atoll’s western ridge is also near to one of the greatest deep water fishing areas in the Maldives, making the atoll an excellent place to observe both reef and pelagic species. Most tourists also notice that the atoll’s fish populations are prospering and that the house reefs of the islands itself, particularly Furaveri’s, are among the best and most accessible diving destinations in the vicinity.
