Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu is a truly stunning, lush tropical island with idyllic white sandy beaches and beautiful accommodation. The house reef varies between 8 and 15 metres from the beach, with an easily accessible drop-off and there are four manta points within day-boat reach. Welcome to paradise!

Baa Atoll is well known for its amazing fish life and varied dive sites and Coco Palm is a perfect base from which to explore the underwater world of this remote and quiet Atoll. Aside from the diving, there are plenty of excursions and activities to occupy your days. Coco Palm also offers a wonderful experience where you can stay overnight, just the two of you, on an uninhabited island in a real beach hut!

Other excursions include a private Sunset Cruise around nearby islands, a morning or an evening Fishing Trip in a traditional dhoni boat. Baa Atoll is a prime location for dolphin spotting, so your camera is a must on the Sunset Dolphin Watching trip.

Diving

Baa Atoll is renowned for its varied dive sites and, with only two resorts in the Atoll, there are few dive boats in the area. Around 35 dive sites are accessible by boat from the resort. Coral growth, variety and quantity of marine life is exceptional in this region of the Maldives and underwater photographers will find themselves spoilt for choice. Besides the more serene dives, there is a wealth of more challenging sites to thrill and excite, making this a great place for beginners and more advanced divers. Manta rays are seen throughout the year and there are four manta points within day boat reach. Whalesharks can be spotted from June to November. The internationally recognised Hanifaru Lagoon is accessible for snorkelling trips and here you have the opportunity to observe manta rays and whalesharks feeding on krill together. Coco Palm has a great house reef 8m - 15m from the beach and the reef drop off is also accessible from the east side of the island. Look out for stingrays, turtles, boxfish, blacktip reef sharks and clown triggerfish ... to name but a few. The Dive Ocean dive centre has a spacious common area for detailed briefings, a selection of fish books, reef guides, maps and descriptions of all the 35 dive sites accessible from Coco Palm.
