Discover subtle charms and immerse experiences

Nowhere on earth is the sea as captivating as it is here, lapping at the shores of Finolhu. The breathtaking waters of the Indian Ocean surrounding this pristine island offer endless opportunities to discover and explore a magnificent underwater world that lies beneath the glittering surface. This environment is so rich in marine life that the area was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2011, largely due to the population of majestic Manta Rays that visit Hanifaru during the southwest monsoon (usually between June and October). Translucent waters, 1.8km long white-sand bank and perma-clear skies aside, what really sets it apart from its Maldivian competitors is its effortlessly stylish surrounds and beach clubby-ness.
