BAA BAA BEACH CLUB
Day or night, BAA BAA BEACH CLUB is the place to be and the heart of the Finolhu gastronomic experience. Pick a spot poolside or on the beach and start the day with a leisurely long breakfast, grazing from the live cooking stations; hang out for chilled tunes and exotic cocktails from the world-class mixologists behind the decks and the bar; or come out to play as nightfall draws the crowds to the magnetic two-storey Beach Club Bar.
Every night is an invitation to step back in time and discover new fun and games. Nightly foodie showcases are matched with world-class wines – at refreshingly quaffable prices – from the island’s Wine Vault. Cinema Retro screens classic movies and live international sports action; gamers can hit the bar’s old school arcade classic Pinball or PacMan action; or soak up the 180 degree views from the panoramic upstairs bar and viewing lounge.
BAA BAA BEACH CLUB keeps things fresh with a nightly, weekly and monthly entertainment and events program, including the weekly Retro Pool Party, the monthly Full Moon Tribal sandbar party… and, just four times per year, vibe-defining “Finolhu Blhu” events – exclusive one-off events featuring appearances from the world’s coolest performers and hottest DJs.
Located on tip of the island with sweeping views of the Indian Ocean, Finolhu’s premium dining venue spans two dining areas: a relaxed indoor dining space, and an open lower deck which encapsulates the archetypal Maldivian experience of being surrounded by the sights and sounds of the sea. Centred around a stunning duck oven, Kanusan’s open kitchen puts its cuisine centre stage, embracing the theatricality of its Asian spirit. Classic favourites such as Mandarin roasted duck and Larb Gai are given a refreshing Kanusan twist, while newly created unique signature dishes include steamed snapper and lobster, Black truffle roast duck and sliced blue abalone in Kanusan sauce. Seating up to 60 guests, Kanusan also features a vibrant overwater bar area.
Finolhu’s old-school tuck shop, tantalisingly located on the corner where The Cove, THUNDERBALL on Palm Beach and the tennis courts meet. Milk Bar’s treats range from guilt-free to carefree, drawing a mix of peckish racketeers, gym bunnies, spa junkies and roaming guests to its shaded and indoor seating. Healthy drinks include amazing smoothies, juices, and Bodyism Shakes, while recharging snacks include fresh wraps and smashed avocado and acai bowls. ‘Naughty’ treats include ice creams and chocolates, amazing coffees, cool beers and wine by the glass.
Milk Bar is also a godsend for holiday ‘essentials’, stocking a seemingly telepathic variety of bathroom amenities, nick nacks and reading material.
FISH & CRAB SHACK
Like a mirage made real, the Fish & Crab Shack is an oasis of rustic chic deliciousness halfway along Finolhu’s stunning one-kilometre sandbar. Swim, stroll out across the sands, or take a Dhoni ride across the lagoon to while away a perfect afternoon: a long lunch under the coconut trees, swimming in the crystal blue lagoon and playing on the pristine white sand.
Cool off with crisp glasses of rosé or crafted cocktails from the beach bar, savour lip-smacking buckets of prawns, and share stunning platters of fresh crab, vegetables and local seafood – a quintessentially Maldivian “must do” experience for couples, friends or families that is simplicity perfected.
In Villa Dining

Finolhu’s heroic home delivery service hits the spot, whether you want to recover, retox or just chill out; indulge in a romantic or naughty night in; or treat the kids to delights that they’ll really devour.
