Barros is an island in the Indian Ocean that is part of the Maldives. The good-neighboring Baros resort is situated in the southern regions of North Malé Atoll (Kaafu Atoll). Baros, Maldives is not only a good place to stay, but it is also very close to Velana International Airport (MLE) and Gulhi Beach. Velana International Airport (MLE) is about 15 km away, and Gulhi Beach is about 35 km away.
Since Baros is right next to the international airport, you do not need to wait for a seaplane to transfer you there.

Best Place for Snorkeling
Another popular activity in Maldives’ islands is snorkeling. There are two sections of snorkeling at the resort, inside and outside of the barriers. Outside the barriers, there are more coral and rock formations, so you can see more, but in the shallower protected sections, fewer certain swimmers may choose to begin their visit. Baros island offers different programs for adventurous visitors who tend to see more. Some of these programs include:
- Baros house reef tour with fish identification, where you can learn a lot about marine life.
- Night snorkeling, which opposes you to the creatures that you couldn’t see in the daylight. Occasionally, you may be able to see underwater plankton shine in the dark.
- The beginner’s program also includes private snorkeling, which teaches you the basics. The best places to begin your snorkeling will be shown to you as well.
