Island Description

Bodufolhudhoo is located in the heart of Alif Alif Atoll (Northern Ari). Due to islands geographical location it is well known for spectacular marine life. As the place is quite far away from Male, it still has rustic Maldivian lifestyle.

Local people care a lot about the beaches and nature being clean, so Bodufolhudhoo is one of the cleanest islands of the atoll. Though the first guest house opened here in 2015 only, locals are very friendly and willing to improve tourism.

Five minute drive away there is Mathiveri Finolhu sandbank where tourists from Bodufolhudhoo can get by motorboat. Also nearby there is a resort island Nika, where visitors can get a tour around or just enjoy some time in the restaurant or bar. There are two local cafes on the island, large children`s playground, as well as diving and water sports center being built. There are no ATMs on Bodufolhudhoo, so please stock cash in Malé.

There is a separate bikini beach for tourists. About the beach. Wide white sands, the beach facing to the south you will enjoy: clean, beautiful, and almost "across the road." Called "Sunset Beach", on the shore expect about 20 sun loungers, which are not always occupied and you can set them either in the shade of the luscious green vegetation or in the sun, and nothing on the horizon can obscure turquoise water's stunning views. This beach has another and very significant benefit: it is very convenient and safe to swim, both for children and adults. A beautiful small lagoon, a good entrance to crystal clear water. The beach is cleaned daily.

If you like snorkeling - Bodufolhudhoo has one of the best house reefs in the Maldives. Safe with plenty to see, the reef is less than 100 meters from the beach - so you will need very little effort to enjoy the beautiful coral and fish life. The current is weak and you can easily swim against it while enjoying a vibrant marine life below. Expect large schools os fish, eagle rays, octopuses, as well as impressive schools of angelfish, parrots and of course pelagics, including whitetip and gray sharks, rays and turtles. Snorkeling gear is rented in guest houses, but it is better to bring your own.

Popular activities include night fishing, deep sea fishing, spa, barbecue picnic on an uninhabited island, dolphin watching, island hopping, motorized and non-motorized water sports, and also snorkeling with whale sharks.

Bodufolhudhoo has 5 economy-class hotels and the opening of new guest houses is expected in the near future, so you will have a place to stay on the island.
