Kelaa island

Ultimate guide (October 2023)
Kelaa is a local island in the east of Haa Alifu atoll, Maldives. The entire west coast is a perfect tropical beach. In fact, the island is located on the edge of a mini atoll. So sea water in the lagoon of atoll is almost like a pool - azure, clear and without waves. There are also many trees and palms ashore. While the village has a good choice of hotels and cafes. In addition, in the south of the island, there are ruins of the former British airbase (WWII). And, of course, any hotel will offer you lagoon tours, as well as snorkeling/diving tours and ocean fishing. Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]

Hotels [edit]

Beach Home Kelaa is a good guesthouse with rooms' fares starting from US$80 per night. There are also few other guesthouses. Their contact details can be found on Google maps. If you see on booking site extraordinary high taxes, it makes sense to contact the hotel directly. Most likely this is just a mistake, or maybe they don't have free rooms for your dates. Anyway, it is worth to clarify everything in advance - in order to avoid unpleasant surprises on check-in. You may also ask the hotel about additional options. For example, sometimes they give private sunbeds on the beach.
