Welcome to Ari Atoll & Around

South Ari Atoll, a Protected Marine Area, remains one of the best places in the world to see whale sharks, which are spotted year-round on the outer reef, while North Ari Atoll is famous for its hammerhead sharks, although these are far more elusive and require deep diving to see. The small natural atoll of Rasdhoo, to Ari Atoll's northeast, and the single island of Thoddoo both host vibrant, growing guesthouse scenes that attract budget travellers looking for an affordable diving holiday.
