Map & Location
Maalifushi is located in the Thaa Atoll, 60 minutes by seaplane transfer from the capital of Malé, where the international airport is located.
Known locally as 'Kolhumadulu', this round atoll has a combined landmass close to nine square kilometers, with no single island larger than one square kilometer. Of the 66 islands that make up the atoll, there is only one other resort under development.
Among the liveaboard cognoscenti, Thaa Atoll has acquired a rich reputation for diving with hammerheads and manta rays, and challenging surf breaks.
