The island is called Orivaru. It’s an uninhabited, virginal island located in the northern Maldives. 34.6 acres of beach and jungle. And it just went up for sale. The island is called Orivaru. It’s an uninhabited, virginal island located in the northern Maldives. 34.6 acres of beach and jungle. And it just went up for sale. The Maldives is located in the Indian Ocean and has Giant Trevally, Bluefin Trevally, Indo-Pacific Permit, Bonefish and Triggerfish.
For the rock bottom price of £8.5 million this tropical paradise could be yours (complete with hotel and spa permits)! Hey, that’s cheaper than most places in Manhattan!
Owned by a mysterious Czech property investor, the island is just 45 minutes by plane from the capital Male. There are 71 islands that make up the Noonu Atolls, and the “luxury real estate firm Debutesq Group,” recently listed this one for sale.
According to The Daily Mail:
Only 13 of the islands are inhabited and the closest one – Minaavaru, which is home to a Hilton resort and spa – is three miles away. Alan O’Connor, managing director for Debutesq Group, said: ‘There is nothing on the island right now. It’s a complete virgin island.’ The island is held on a long leasehold from the Maldivian government but Debutesq Group said such leases are frequently renegotiated and extended. Ringed by a white sand beach that is lapped by crystal clear water, Orivaru is a blank canvas for its future owner or owners.
So, there you have it! Your very own private island, with little fishing pressure, I’m sure you could wade it’s flats each morning and have shots at uneducated fish on a fly rod. Should we start a Kickstarter account to buy this?
No there isn’t any fly fishing footage, however the film captures some fishy looking water. The Ridge is the brand new film from Danny Macaskill… For the first time in one of his films Danny climbs aboard a mountain bike and returns to his native home of the Isle of Skye in Scotland to take on a death-defying ride along the notorious Cuillin Ridgeline.

Matt Carara from Simms shares his time spent fishing in Michigan for steelhead. Matt says he fished a few times up in . Matt says, ” I highly recommend Baldwin on the Pere Marquette – gorgeous river, tons of fish and plenty of public access. They aren’t huge fish, and seem to range from 4-10 pounds, but they are acrobatic and eat swung flies almost as well as nymphs. It’s a pretty unique experience just to be on the river, and fish numbers are high pretty much all Fall and Spring”.
Here’s a steelhead from April of this year on the Pere Marquette. A pretty standard fish, right around 28” and chrome.
Nice work Matt!
