Angsana Velavaru


Angsana Velavaru: An unspoiled island in the South Nilandhe Atoll, Maldives, Angsana Velavaru brings new meaning to carefree abandon in paradise. "Velavaru" translates as 'Turtle Island' in the indigenous language of Dhivehi. The picturesque island resort is a 40-minute seaplane journey from Male International Airport, and rests on the virtually untouched South Nilandhe Atoll. The dive sites are strikingly beautiful, making this one of the most sought-after destinations for marine enthusiasts.


Angsana Velavaru is located at the South Nilandhe Atoll (Dhaalu Atoll), some 146km and a 40-minute seaplane ride away from Male International Airport. Due to its un-touristed location reached only by a fascinating seaplane transfer, Velavaru Island, Maldives boasts a pristine natural environment, unparalleled tranquillity and peerless open sea dive sites. Dolphin Cruises allow you to experience the excitement of spotting dolphins in the wild, onboard a cruise in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Private Sailing Trips let you cruise in a catamaran and explore the picturesque surroundings of Nilandhe Atoll. Discover Maldives' best kept underwater secrets and dramatic reefs with a snorkeling expedition accompanied by a Marine Biologist. Trolling Fishing by Dhoni invites you abroad a traditional Maldivian Dhoni for the ultimate open sea fishing expedition in the search for sail fish, wahoo and blue marlin. While an island tour displays Maldives islands' culture and its local arts and crafts.

The InOcean Villas at Angsana Velavaru are a standalone cluster of water villas that are not connected to an island. Delicately perched on the edge of the Indian Ocean, the villas offer a unique castaway experience, literally steps away from the vibrant marine life. Each two-storey villa comes with an outdoor deck and its own infinity pool; the Premier and Sanctuary InOcean Villas also feature an extended deck into the ocean, with a cosy sala for leisure.
