The Northern Atolls the least-developed region of Maldives, remain scarcely known to foreigners. This is a great place to experience traditional Maldivian life. Throughout the region, go diving and snorkelling and discover the wrecks along the western fringe of the atolls. Many are only now being adequately explored. Baa Atoll, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, boasts pristine waters, diverse marine life and the famous Manta Ray feeding ground, Hanifaru Bay. With just a handful of resorts and guesthouses, you'll often feel like you have the Northern Atolls all to yourself.
