THIS IS A GREAT PLACE FOR YOUR TAGLINE.
With an in-house restaurant ,20 foot speed boat a 54-foot excursion boat, and our very own dive centre, there’s always something to do. However, with a secluded sun deck, private beach and boundless views of the Indian Ocean, you might just enjoy doing not very much at all. Whatever you choose to do, an Aveyla experience is always magical.
In terms of marine wildlife, there’s no doubt that Baa atoll is special. When declaring the region a biosphere reserve in 2011, the United Nations explained that the territory “harbours globally significant biodiversity in its numerous reefs and demonstrates a long history of human interaction with the environment”. As soon as you take a glimpse beneath the surface, you’ll understand what they mean. The reefs teem with life. The island’s house reef is home to a manta cleaning station where large numbers of mantas gather to allow cleaner wrasse to peck away at their skin. With Aveyla having their very own PADI dive centre, there’s no better portal to this underwater world.
If you’re not a diver, you’ll still be able to encounter incredible wildlife whilst snorkelling, especially in the world famous Hanifaru Bay. Just a five-minute boat ride away, this small bay is a wonder to behold. Between June and November this small inlet just comes alive. Due to the currents and the shape of the bay, the water traps high numbers of phytoplankton, which in turn attract an astounding concentration of manta rays hoping to feed on these microscopic creatures. What’s more, whale sharks are also known to frequent the bay to join the feeding frenzy. As diving is banned in this bay, snorkelling is the best and only way to experience it. Swimming amongst them and observing their feeding behaviour is one excursion you simply cannot miss!
Aveyla offers a range of non-motorised water sports, including stand up paddle boarding, kayaking and windsurfing. So why not grab a board and make the most of an afternoon in the lagoon?
If you fancy something with a bit more pace, there is a third-party water sports centre on the island called Dharavandhoo Water Sports, which offers wakeboarding, jet skis and water skiing. Hop on board and get your heart rate going!
We love to showcase the best of Maldivian talents and as such we organise a weekly Maldivian Cultural Event, where local musicians, dancers and singers perform traditional Maldivian entertainment. Guests can enjoy the rhythmic singing and pounding of Bodu Beru – traditional drumming assemblies – and the frenetic dancing that accompanies it. We also organise regular disco nights for those who like to showcase their own moves! Finally, for those more relaxed evenings, we can organise movie screenings on our projector.
At Aveyla, we take any reason to party and we’d love to celebrate with you! Whatever your occasion – be it an intimate beachside wedding or an office incentive trip - we’d be delighted to make that happen for you.
