Noonu Atoll is located North Maldives, at 40 minutes seaplane flight away from Male.

Wild and unspoiled, the Atoll still counts very few Resorts.

Northern Atolls nature offers a different landscape. Islands generally have a few or no coconut trees with a low and dense vegetation.

Noonu Atoll is part of the unknown Atolls of the archipelago, due to a very recent Resort development and distance from Male International Airport.
As most of the unknown places in the world, Nature here remains untouched. The feeling of being at the end of the world is absolute.

Noonu Atoll, together with many Northern Atolls are also famous for their rich and various diving sites. Divers often come to this part of Maldives for shark observation.

Definitively a place to experience…
