  4. Best Hotels in the Raa Atoll: Maldives

The Maldives Raa Atoll (North Maalhosmadulu) consists of 88 islands. Only 15 of them have a permanent population. The capital is Ungoofaaru Island, a developed fishing center in the Maldives. Raa is one of the most visited atolls in the north of the archipelago. The distance from Male is about 135-150 kilometers. By Maldivian standards, this is not so far, because local airlines and seaplanes fly between the atolls. There are several excellent resorts on the Raa Islands, where modern comfort is created amidst unique tropical nature. We suggest you familiarize yourself with them further.
