Embark on a voyage of discovery towards an island once uncharted now discovered. Take a 50-minute picturesque Islanad Aviation Domestic flight from Malé, due north, to the airfield of Hanimadoo … the treasure is within your grasp. Cast away the map … for it is no longer required. The secret unfolds in the course of a 15 minute speedboat ride through the widely undiscovered northern atoll of Haa Alifu … it is a perfectly ‘rounded’ island, spanning over 35 acres, with nature’s breathtaking ‘aquarium’ all around and a beautiful coral garden beneath.
