JA Manafaru joins International Coastal Cleanup initiative
JA Manafaru has joined the International Coastal Cleanup initiative by organising an extensive cleanup of a nearby inhabited island.
As with every year, JA Manafaru associates and guests came together with the community of Mulhadhoo island on September 16 to clean the beach surrounding the island and the reef. During the day-long cleanup, over 384kg of garbage was successfully collected and recycled.
“Small steps go a long way,” an announcement by the resort said.
“After the cleaning, guests had the opportunity to explore the traditional Maldivian village, giving them an insight into island life in the Maldives and enjoyed a Maldivian feast.”
The International Coastal Cleanup is the world’s largest volunteer effort for our ocean and waterways. Volunteers all over the world remove waste from the shores and document what they find. The data is compiled and published in an annual global report on marine debris by the Ocean Conservancy, an organisation that works to help protect the ocean from the challenges it faces.
Accessible via a 75-minute seaplane flight from the main Velana International Airport or by a 45-minute domestic flight to Hanimaadhoo Airport followed by a 35-minute luxury speedboat transfer, JA Manafaru is a peaceful haven situated in the northernmost atoll of Haa Alif, where world-class service is delivered amidst dazzling turquoise waters, white sand beaches, distinct Maldivian architecture and lush vegetation.
A total of 83 villas and suites, each with their own private plunge pool are dotted throughout the spacious island. Additionally, find island bliss with over eight spa treatment rooms at the award-winning Calm Spa, gourmet galore at one of seven restaurants and create lasting memories with water sports such as scuba diving, jet skiing and kayaking.
