Age-old palm trees arch overhead. Thick green foliage provides cool reprieve from the Maldivian sun. Beyond, the lagoon harbours a thriving coral reef. Baros is, and always has been, an enchanting natural wonderland. We invite all our guests to learn more about our precious environment, and help us preserve it for generations to come.
Just a few decades ago, this was an uninhabited wilderness of coconut palms and tropical undergrowth, surrounded by an untouched beach and a pristine coral reef. For more than four decades, we have carefully nurtured the natural eco-systems of the island, the lagoon and the majestic underwater world beyond.
The fragile coral reefs of the Maldives are some of the most spectacular in the world, drawing thousands of visitors each year for snorkelling and diving. Yet they are much more than just a tourist attraction, they are the foundation of the Maldives, both literally and by sustaining the industries on which Maldivians depend.
The health of our reefs is vital to the future of the Maldives. We hope you’ll join us in protecting them in any way you can
