Bandos is a Maldivian island , which is located north of Malé centrally in the North Male Atoll , which after the division of the administrative unit now belongs to Kaafu .
The island is located about eight kilometers north of both Malé and the airport island. Both can be reached in about 20 minutes by speedboat. Bandos is well-known for its near-shore operations, which are easily accessible snorkeling and diving areas . All around, there is a narrow, turquoise lagoon. The island is home to one of the oldest developed resorts in the Maldives. The oval shaped island measures 178,900 m² and has a diameter of about 500 m. Due to its location in the interior of the atoll, the island is surrounded by a narrow, narrow lagoon, which is also relatively deep in the sea.
The uninhabited neighboring island of Kuda Bandos, which can be reached from Bandos by a boat ferry, is not part of the hotel complex.
