Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll- Maldives/ Maldives Holiday Homes

Accessible via scheduled flights to the domestic airport situated on the island of Kaadehdhoo, this atoll of 153 islands has just 10 inhabited islands, and is located about 340 kilometres south of capital Male. Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll, referred as Southern Huvadhu Atoll for administrative purposes, has always been significant to the Maldives’ political atmosphere largely due to its involvement in forming a secessionist state in the southern part of the country in late 1950s. ‘Huvadhoo Kandu’, the broadest channel in the Maldives, is located off north of this atoll. Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll has a unique natural composition that includes numerous pristine dive sites and scuba diving regions filled with exciting features like caves, steep drop offs and beautiful underwater landscapes.
