Cinnamon Island Alidhoo

Embark on a voyage of discovery towards an island once uncharted now discovered. Take a 50-minute picturesque Islanad Aviation Domestic flight from Male', due north, to the airfield of Hanimadoo... the treasure is within your grasp. Cast away the map... for it is no longer required. The secret unfolds in the course of a 15 minute speedboat ride through the widely undiscovered northern atoll of Haa Alifu... it is a perfectly 'rounded' island, spanning over 35 acres, with nature's breathtaking 'aquarium' all around and a beautiful coral garden beneath.
