Geography of Baros Island
Conveniently close to Maldivian capital Malé, Baros Island takes just 25 minutes to reach by speedboat from the International airport. It lies around 16 kilometers to the South of Malé, but is in stark contrast to the bustle of the Maldivian capital.
There are many places to visit that are just a hop, step and jump away from Baros Island. For example, the Angsana and the Vabbininfaru beaches are top attractions, and so are the Kuda Bandos and Bandos beaches. A little away lays the paradisiac island beach in Hulhumale and a visitor should definitely make a trip to Full Moon beach.
The house reef itself is just a paddle away from the beach and there is an eye-popping array of rays, turtles and exotic fish for one to feast the eyes upon. Beach and water villas, private pools and elegant accommodation adorn the surface of Baros Island which is inspired by traditions of hospitality and luxury that are true to a visit to the Maldives.
Ecology of Baros Island
The natural environment is protected a lot at Baros Island, where a coral regeneration program is run. There are also efforts put forth for greater sustainability which are further extended to non-biodegradable products and their use. The reef here teems with unadulterated marine life that is a pleasure to see, while the pristine white beaches are shaded by palm trees that are at one with the region. The entire island is set to be at one with nature and the many initiatives that are taken to retain its natural beauty bear testament to this fact.
Unfailing attention to detail is a hallmark of hosts here, and the entire island is planned so as not to upset nature. The end result is that a visitor here gets to enjoy nature in its almost-virgin form.
