Raa Atoll or North Maalhosmadulu Atoll is one of the northern most visited atolls of the Maldives. It is separated from Baa Atoll by the 5km wide Hani Kandu or Moresby Channel, located only 20km east of South Miladhunmadulu Atoll, a very remote atoll in the upper north of the Maldives. Raa Atoll is almost 70km long and 30km wide, bordered by a chain of islands on its western side. Some of the more popular include Ungoofaaru, Kinolhas, Vaadhoo, Meedhupparu and all in the north Alifushi, known for its boat building craftsmanship.
With more than 90 islets, it offers many fast flowing channels, an enormous amount of marine life and some of the best beaches in the Maldives. Because of the ever present current, advanced divers will be more comfortable then beginners, but with this many pinnacles, inner lagoon dive sites and colorfull fish life it will attract anybody, also non divers.
