North Ari Atoll Holidays
North Ari Atoll is a cluster of small coral islands that make up part of the Maldives. The word atoll means a collection of closely located islands that surround a lagoon. It's one of the largest atolls within the Maldives and contains an array of small islands both inhabiated and uninhabited.
Each of the islands varies in size and style, with some being more developed than others. From traditional bungalows to larger hotels that still retain the traditional Maldivian charm, there's a variety of accommodation available for a North Ari Atoll holiday.

Male is the capital of the Maldives and can be reached by boat in an hour. Here you'll get to witness Maldivian life first hand.

Evenings in North Ari Atoll

Dotted amongst the sea it's easy to understand why seafood on the islands is so abundant. Fish, along with coconuts and other locally grown fruit are some of the few things that are not imported onto the island so they're the most delicious due to their freshness.
