About Addu Atoll - presentation, information, photos and recommendations


Addu Atoll recieved a rating of 5 / 5 from Direct Booking customers (1 reviews during - ). Customer reviews about Addu Atoll, Maldives

Unlike other atolls in Maldives, Addu Atoll has a lagoon that is a natural anchor, accessible through four natural channels. This leads to a natural harbor that is very calm and safe for sea vessels at any time and is not affected by seasonal changes. The four channels are arranged around the atoll as follows: the Kuda channel and the nearby Maa channel are to the north, the Gan channel to the south, and the broad Villingili channel to the southeast.
There are unique features in the Addu Atoll islands. The islands are protected from storms and high waves of the Indian Ocean by the barrier reefs. Coconut palms, the national tree, are capable of growing almost everywhere on the Addu Atoll islands. There are small lakes, wetlands and marshy fields that are unique to Addu Atoll.
During the Second World War, Addu Atoll was the site of a secret Royal Navy base, to take advantage of the deep anchorage and the protected natural harbor there. The base remained unknown to the Axis in the early years of the war. In 1957, the base was transferred to the Royal Air Force under the name of RAF Gan, before being closed in 1975. The island is now the site of Addu International Airport.


Addu Atoll | Addu Atoll, also known as Seenu Athena, is the southernmost atoll of the Maldives. Addu Atoll, along with Fuvahmulah, located 40 km north of the Addu Atoll, extend the Maldives into the southern hemisphere
