Each white washed guestroom comes with a balcony or terrace, air conditioning and en-suite, partially open-air bathroom.

What to see

The Baa Atoll including the Goifulhafehendhoo Atoll, has been awarded UNESCO status for a reason. You won’t be disappointed by the diversity of fish and coral that you’ll see.

Baa Atoll

This atoll is full of overhangs, whip coral, dark red sponges and black coral bushes. This is an amazing destination for anyone who likes soft coral. The soft corals found in these overhangs are blue, yellow and green; pairs of porcelain crabs rest in anemone coral. You’ll also see large table corals on the reefs. In the channels, you’ll find eagle rays, napoleon wrasses, turtles and sharks.

Goifulhafehendhoo Atoll

This atoll surrounds the outer edge of Baa Atoll and offers a very different diving experience. If you’re visiting the atoll during manta season (usually between November and April), you can expect their orderly feeding behaviour to be disbanded while they feed. They bump into each other like bumper cars at a fairground.

At atoll inner reef, you’ll find musidaes and merulindaes building up the stunning coral reef which sometimes reach the height of over 5 meters, zoanthids growing like wild mushrooms and fungiidaes laying all over the reef. The healthy coral reef gives good protection for colorful angelfish, butterflyfish and crabs and shrimps.

At the outer reef drop-off of northeastern Goifulhafehendhoo atoll, you’ll enjoy dynamic drift dives while watching big schools of bigeye trevallies, batfish and rainbow runners, eagle rays, napoleon wrasses, giant travallies and dogtooth tunas pass by. Hawksbill turtles are often swimming along the drop off while green turtles, stingrays and reef cods sit in overhangs.

AQUA BLUE Fehendhoo Dive &  Watersports is based on Fehendhoo Island, a short boat ride from Goidhoo.

Fehendhoo, Goidhoo and Fulhadhoo make up a small independant atoll south west of Baa Atoll called Goifulhafehendhoo. The atoll offers the chance to dive with mantas (seasonal).

Daily snorkeling and diving trips depart for the atoll's inner and outer reef. During season, trips to Hanifaru Bay are organized on a weekly basis. 

Full/half day trips are available on request to the southwest part of Baa Atoll where you will experience completely different underwater topography compared with Goifulhafehendhoo Atoll. 

A full range of PADI recreational training is available alongside a watersports center.
