Southern Ari Atoll

4.6
Southern Ari Atoll contains the most populous of Ari's islands, though this still amounts to little. A mere 2,000 residents live in Mahibadhoo, the capital and largest population center. Like the northern half of the atoll, the islands and atolls-within-an-atoll of Southern Ari feature pure white sands, swaying palms, and overwater bungalows plucked straight from a brochure. Island-hopping, diving, snorkeling, and relaxation fill an itinerary in Southern Ari Atoll, while cultural attractions include a beautiful mosque and Buddhist temple ruins. Southern Ari Atoll is in Alifu Atoll. Add Southern Ari Atoll and other destinations in Maldives to your travel plans using our Maldives trip builder app .
