If you were to close your eyes and imagine the island of Baros in the Maldives, what would come to mind? Many would think of the powder-soft sands lined by quintessential palm trees. Others might think of the tastefully luxurious beach and water villas that adorn this island paradise. The water lovers amongst us, however, would dream of the fabled temperate waters that lap the island’s shores; the waters of the Indian ocean that glitter in every shade of blue.
If the latter speaks to you, and you can’t think of anything better than a holiday spent in the warm waters of Baros, then these are just a few of the reasons the island makes for the ultimate diving destination in the Maldives:
It’s no secret that diving in the Maldives is a renowned experience. The destination as a whole is celebrated for its vast array of sea life, its generally excellent conditions and its magnificent and varied dive sites.
It’s important to keep in mind though, that not every island in the Maldives offers quite the same dive experiences, and one thing is for sure, the dives at Baros are legendary. From a gorgeous and unspoilt house reef and fantastic dive sites nearby to a plethora of exquisite marine life that includes everything from reef sharks and turtles to mantas and moray eels — it’s not hard to imagine why.
It’s a simple fact that not all dive centres are created equal, and when you embark on an underwater adventure, it’s vital to ensure that you are doing so with a reputable and trusted team.
Not only was Baros one of the very first resorts to open in the Maldives back in the early 70s, it was also among the first to open its very own dive centre in 1979.
Ensuring our guests have an incredible dive experience every time is of the utmost importance to us, which is why we keep our group sizes small so we can give careful attention to each diver.
We’re passionate about our environment and the incredible tropical surroundings that provide the backdrop to our beautiful resort. Our dives are carefully and thoughtfully created to ensure minimum impact on the underwater world so that it is preserved, while still ensuring our guests have extraordinary experiences.
Baros is a tropical wonderland with an underwater treasure trove that begs to be explored — but no matter how you choose to enjoy the inviting cerulean waters, it’s always best to do so on guided adventures with professionals and information sessions. This allows us to educate our guests on how to enjoy their time in paradise responsibly so we can all play a part in preserving our exquisite house reef and underwater habitat for future generations to enjoy.
You don’t need to be a seasoned diver to enjoy the underwater world at Baros. We have a wide selection of dives that cater to varying diving abilities so you can ensure you will have a great experience no matter how long you have been diving for.
We also offer a selection of diving courses for those looking to upskill in the most magnificent conditions or for those that would like to learn to dive in the first place.
Not sure about diving itself? Not a problem — we have an array of exceptional snorkelling experiences on offer, allowing you to make the most of the tropical sunshine, temperate waters and vivid marine life in a way that feels most comfortable for you.
