Raa Atoll Guide
Raa is located 140 kilometers from the city of Male. Until the 90s, this atoll was closed to tourists, and only after some time it began to develop as a tourist center.
It consists of fifteen islands, and all of them are inhabited. The local population mainly works in the tourism sector, but there is also a fishing fleet here, which, by the way, is the largest in the Maldives.
The main occupation of tourists on Raa Atoll is, in addition to relaxing on the beach, diving. Recommended diving sites are Milaidhoo Reef, Kakani Thila, Madi Finolhu and Digali Haa.
Resting on Raa Atoll, you will have the opportunity to go on a boat trip to Alifushi Island, where you can see with your own eyes how local craftsmen make dhoni boats.
Each hotel on Raa Atoll has restaurants serving not only Maldivian, but also European and North American cuisines. In the villages there are also small taverns where you can have a bite to eat.
There are also small souvenir shops in the hotels where you can buy such interesting items as shark teeth, shell bracelets, models of dhoni boats and other beautiful souvenirs made from seafood.
How to get there?
It is convenient and profitable to fly Chisinau-Malé or Bucharest-Malé, but keep in mind that there are no direct flights in this direction, only with transfers.
The most comfortable option is to take a Turkish Airlines flight, where meals are provided on board. If the transplant in Istanbul is delayed, then you will also be provided with food. If the transfer in Istanbul takes more than eight hours, then you will also be provided with a hotel room. But, as practice and experience show, Turkish Airlines planes fly quite often, so there are almost never long transfers.
The duration of the flight is 11-12 hours.
Alternatively, you can fly from Bucharest with one of the following airlines: Emirates, Qatar Airways, Air France or Condor Airlines. The last airline is not very convenient, but on board meals and luggage are included in the price, pretty good service.
The cheapest low-cost airlines
Flydubai - flies from Bucharest with a transfer in Dubai. Tickets are much cheaper, but there is no food on board, and only hand luggage is included in the price. The main luggage is paid separately. Relatively good connections, you do not have to wait long for a transfer.
Wizz Air flies from Bucharest with a stopover in Abu Dhabi or Dubai. This is the cheapest option, but there are disadvantages: they don’t feed on board and the docking is very long - up to a day. This option is great for those who want to make a stop in the United Arab Emirates and see new and interesting places along the way.
Upon arrival, you can get to Raa Atoll by seaplane. By booking a tour with our travel agency, you are guaranteed a meeting at the airport and a seaplane that will take you to your hotel. That is, it is all included in the price of the ticket.
If you are traveling on your own, then you can use the services of local airlines that organize flights to the island - these are Trans Maldivian Airways and Maldivian Seaplane.
