Angaga - Description
Our first ever island and the reason why we fell in love with the Maldives. Angaga is a simple, no frills island that oozes natural Maldivian character. The ambience is relaxed and informal with sand on the floor of the restaurant and bar areas. The snorkelling on the house reef is excellent and easily accessible from the beach.
Located in south Ari Atoll, Angaga is a small island measuring 300 x 150 metres and taking just 10 minutes to walk around the perimeter. It is a fine looking resort with good beaches and plenty of palm trees. One side of the island is surrounded by a coral reef while the other has a wide lagoon. The buildings are well designed, discreet and natural in appearance with thatched roofs. The absence of coral walls (groynes) built into the sea means the views are uninterrupted, but this does mean that the beach tends to move around the island with the changing seasons. This shouldn’t cause too much of a problem as being such a small island, it is never too far to find the perfect spot.
