Faafu atoll is a magical world in the Maldives filled with absolute silence except for the fresh breath of a breeze and the delicate whisper of waves melting in corn sand. In more than a hundred kilometers from Male airport, Faafu atoll is one of the few places in the country where you will get a real taste of the authentic Maldives.

With comfortable villa, exceptional restaurants and great spa there is only one resort in the atoll. Home to one of the best house reefs in the Maldives, the 4-star Filitheyo Island Resort is an excellent base for exploring marine life. You can dive and snorkel right around the island in some places the drop off is only meters from shore. This Maldivian island resort is in a Northern region which makes it quite understandable that it has been included in the list of the top twenty five diving spots in Maldives. A very romantic and relaxing island.

Faafu atoll also has a handful guest houses on Nilandhoo Island with an exciting selection of budget pleasures including fishing, dolphins, island hopping and much more.

You can reach the Faafu's Atoll accommodation from Male in many ways: Local Ferry Transfer (6 hours), Speed Boat Transfer (2 hours 30 min), Domestic Flight Transfer + speedboat (via Maamigili airport) or by seaplane.
