Baa Atoll is an atoll in the Maldives. Situated on the west of the Maldives atoll chain, it consists of 75 islands of which 13 are inhabited with a population of over 11, 000 people. The remianing 57 islands are uninhabited, in addition to five islands being developed as resorts.
This administrative atoll consists of two separate natural atolls, namely South Maalhosmadulu Atoll and Goidhoo Atoll (also known as Horsburgh Atoll). The South Maalhosmadulu Atoll is 42km long and 32km wide and consists of 10 inhabited islands.
Baa Atoll is also considered as a good example of the rich biodiversity found in the Maldives, including large mangroves and a unique diversity of fauna, such as the benthic fauna. Furthermore, the ring-shaped reef forms known as faroes in the Baa atoll is a reef structure which is unique to the Maldives.
The southernmost uninhabited island of Olhugiri in the Baa atoll lies 13 km north of Goidhoo Atoll. Olhugiri is well-known for its unique natural vegetation and for providing two of the only perching sites for the Great Frigatebird in the Maldives. Likewise, other marine creatures such as seaturtles and hawksbill turtles can be encountered.
The Fisheries Ministry of the Maldives has banned catching turtles or taking eggs from Olhugiri, which also applies to 11 other islands.
